Peyton entered the game knowing that he needed to make three touchdown passes to beat Brett’s record of 508 touchdown passes, and he accomplished it by halftime!
There were no hard feelings on Brett’s part, however; the retired quarterback took to Twitter to congratulate Peyton on his victory:

Peyton Manning’s Teammates Play Keep-Away
For fans of irony, Peytons’ record-breaking pass is particularly incredible — when Peyton left the Indianapolis Colts after the 2011 season, he was dithering over whether to join the Broncos or the 49ers. Therefore, when he made the pass, it was against the team he otherwise would have joined!
As one of the highest-scoring quarterbacks in the league, it’s clear that Peyton is going to make his current record particularly hard to beat! The 38-year-old is not slowing down any time soon.
After the history-making pass, Peyton’s teammates teased him with a game of keep-away, which was pretty adorable (as adorable as grown men can be):
So, HollywoodLifers, are there any Broncos fans among you? Are you happy for Peyton, or are you too annoyed by the 49ers’ loss? Let us know!
