Entering the 2014 season, there weren’t many NFL passing records that Peyton Manning didn’t already own.

Now he has the biggest.

Manning’s touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter was the quarterback’s 509th of his career, moving him past future hall of famer Brett Favre for the all time record.

Manning is often emotionless on the field but even the Broncos’ signal caller cracked a smile after Denver took a 21-3 lead on the 49ers.

The record breaker was Manning’s third of the first half. Manning finished the game going 22-of-26 for 318 yards with four scores as Denver routed San Francisco.
