(Reuters) - Denver quarterback Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre's National Football League record for career touchdown passes when he threw his 509th scoring pass during the second quarter of the Broncos game with the San Francisco 49ers in Denver on Sunday.

Manning's eight-yard pass was caught in the end zone by Demaryius Thomas to eclipse the record of 508 touchdowns Brett Favre set in 2010 while playing for the Minnesota Vikings.
