Colts QB became the first to pass 40,000 yards in a decade

This season is a records season for the Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. He has broken or will break quite a few NFL records to make his career as a professinal football player in NFL jersey even more perfect.

Last Sunday’s 20-17 victor over the Houston Texans did not only mean the Colts’ eighth straight win, but also Manning’s final pass to break the 40,000 yards milestone. Before the game, he needed 19 yards to reach the milestone, and after it he passed over it. He reached it as early as in the first quarter by a 5-yard completion to Pierre Garcon. It was also Manning’s 125th career win and made him tie with Fran Tarkenton for fourth place on the league’s career wins list for quarterback and pass Tarkenton for third place on the league's career touchdowns list.

And he is very likely to become the first player in league history to throw 300 in a decade as he needs only three touchdown passes to reach that. He has already done the best in having completions by becoming the fastest quarterback to 4,000 completions.
