Manning passes 500 td milestone with Broncos win over Cardinals
DENVER (AP) - Peyton Manning has thrown his 500th career touchdown pass, joining Brett Favre as the only members of the exclusive club.
Manning threw a 7-yard dart to tight end Julius Thomas to give Denver a 7-3 lead over Arizona in the first quarter Sunday. Thomas has caught six of Manning's nine TD throws this season.
Manning reached the mark in his 244th career regular season game, 49 fewer games than it took Favre.
It was Manning's 101st TD pass since coming to Denver in 2012 following his tearful goodbye in Indianapolis, where he played his first 13 NFL seasons before sitting out all of 2011 following neck fusion surgery.
Manning figures to surpass Favre's record of 508 TD throws later this month.
