Peyton Manning becomes second QB with 500 TDs

Peyton Manning made history -- again. 

The Denver Broncos star connected with Julius Thomas for his 500th career touchdown pass in Sunday's 41-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He ultimately added another three TD tosses, completing 31 of 47 passes for 479 yards and two picks.

Manning is just the second QB ever to accomplish the feat, joining Brett Favre (508).

The Broncos' offense captured 2013 form for the first time this season, with No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas finally snapping out of his early-season funk.

Thomas' 226 yards are not only a franchise record, but also the most by any NFL wide receiver this season.

It not for a chop-block penalty on left tackle Ryan Clady, Manning and Thomas would have added another 77-yard touchdown.

Barring injury, Manning will break Favre's all-time record this season -- with plenty of help from Thomas and Thomas.
