Manning needed three touchdown passes to break Favre's record and he accomplished the feat by the end of the first half. His 509th touchdown, which broke Favre's record, came on a third-down pass to Demaryius Thomas. Earlier in the game, he tied Favre's record with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Wes Welker.
Favre said on NFL GameDay Morning Sunday that he hadn't been paying much attention to Manning's touchdown total.
"I don't really care to be honest with you and I mean that with no disrespect," Favre said in an interview with the NFL Network's Steve Mariucci. "I think the world of Peyton. I'm not surprised that he's going to break it."
