Peyton Manning and Most Games with Four or More Passing Touchdowns Since the Merger

Peyton Manning, Touchdown...Again

Peyton Manning, Touchdown…Again

Here’s a quarterback record that Peyton Manning broke some time ago (as opposed to his most recent record-breaking feat).

Manning has more games with four or more passing touchdowns than anyone else since the completed NFL-AFL merger in 1970 – 33 – and with a little room to play with, and some time yet to pad his stats.

Though the second best QB on this list is still active. Drew Brees has done it 25 times and it is possible Brees could take over one day. He’s about three years younger.

Then you have three of the usual suspects: Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Tom Brady.

But check this: Aaron Rodgers is next, ahead of his time, but on a different level. It goes from Brady with 20 to Rodgers with 13.

And check this: the top 20 QBs with the most “4-or-more” regular season games, below.

What about “five-or-more” or even “six or more” passing touchdown games? Check that, tomorrow.
