Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes to break Brett Favre's career NFL record and the Denver Broncos led the San Francisco 49ers 21-10 at halftime Sunday night.

Manning threw an eight-yard scoring strike to Demaryius Thomas in the corner of the end zone for No. 509 with 3:09 remaining in the second quarter. Then, the celebration was on, but not before some good-natured ribbing from his receivers.

Thomas tossed the historic ball past Manning and to Emmanuel Sanders, who then lobbed it to Wes Welker. From there, Welker tossed it back to Sanders, who then threw it to Julius Thomas — all of Manning's targets getting into the act.

Finally, the ball was handed off to Manning near the sideline as the crowd euphorically cheered. Favre and John Elway gave video tributes to Manning on the scoreboard.
