Consistency and health have been key to Manning's 530 career touchdown passes. Aside from missing the entire 2011 campaign due to injury, Manning has never missed a regular season game, throwing for at least 26 touchdowns each year. The 2013 season saw him throw for 55 touchdown passes, breaking Tom Brady's record of 50. Statistically his best year, Manning also set the record for most passing yards in a season at 5,477 en route to leading the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl.

Through the 2014 season, Manning's career passer rating of 97.5 ranks behind only those of Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo. While throwing more interceptions than touchdowns his rookie season resulted in a mediocre 71.2 rating, Manning has since eclipsed the 100.0 rating six times. His 2004 season with the Indianapolis Colts was his career-best, when he finished with a 121.1 rating.

Manning heads into the 2015 season with 69,691 career passing yards. Barring injury, Favre's 71,838 is well within reach by season's end.
