INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Peyton Manning is the first NFL quarterback
to pass for 40,000 yards in any decade.
Manning needed 19 yards to reach the milestone. He did it on a
5-yard completion to Pierre Garcon in the first quarter of Sunday's
game against the Houston Texans.
That could be the first of many accomplishments for Manning on
Sunday. If the Colts win, Manning will tie Fran Tarkenton for
fourth place on the career wins list for quarterbacks with 125. He
also needs four touchdown passes to become the first in league
history to throw for 300 in a decade.
Among his accomplishments this season, Manning became the
fastest quarterback to 4,000 completions and passed Tarkenton for
third place on the career touchdowns list.
