Updated Mar. 4, 2020 7:54 p.m. EST

Peyton Manning has etched his name into the history books again.

The Broncos'€™ signal caller threw his 51st touchdown pass to eclipse Tom Brady'€™s single-season record for most touchdown passes in a single season.

Manning completed a 25-yard pass to tight end Julius Thomas with 4:28 left in the fourth quarter of Sunday'€™s 37-13 win over the Texans. He finished the day completing 32 of 51 passes for 400 yards and four touchdowns.

Brady set the record in 2007 during the Patriots'€™ unbeaten regular season. Manning previously had the record when he threw 49 touchdowns in 2004.


The Broncos (12-3) will travel to Oakland next week.
