A Look At Peyton Manning's Top Touchdown Passes With The Colts

Intro: On Sunday night, Peyton Manning set an NFL-record with his 510th career touchdown pass. Here’s a look back at some of Manning’s all-time touchdown passes during his 14 seasons in Indianapolis.





INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday night, former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning added to his Hall of Fame resume by throwing his 510th career touchdown pass.

That moved him past Brett Favre for the most touchdown passes in NFL history.

In 14 seasons in Indianapolis, Manning tossed 399 touchdowns.

Here's a look back at some of Manning's finest touchdown passes (regular season and playoffs) during his tenure in Indianapolis:

Manning's 53-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne

February 4, 2007 (Colts 29-17 win in Super Bowl XLI)

-This might go down as one of the easier touchdown tosses Manning had as a Colt, from a pure openness standpoint. Amidst the falling rain in Miami, Wayne broke free from the Bears secondary and Manning found him for the Colts first points in what would be an historic night. Credit Manning for hanging in the pocket and taking a hit from Bears defensive lineman Tank Johnson to lift the deep ball to Wayne.

Manning's 21-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Stokley

December 26, 2004 (Colts 34-31 win over the Chargers)

-All the weight finally came off Manning's shoulders when he found Stokley for his NFL-record 49th touchdown pass of the season. Lost in the chaos of Manning setting the record was the fact that the score came with 56 seconds left in regulation and the Colts then converted a two-point conversion to force the game into overtime. The Colts would go on to kick a first drive field goal in overtime to record their 12th win of the season.

Manning's 6-yard touchdown to Marvin Harrison

September 6, 1998 (Colts 24-15 loss to the Dolphins)

-It took nearly the entire 60 minutes of Manning's NFL debut for the No. 1 pick to find the end zone. A six-yard touchdown toss to Harrison marked the start of a career that has included more than 500 touchdown passes. In Manning's rookie season, he would throw for 26 touchdown passes, the fewest in 16 seasons as a starter.

Manning's 1-yard touchdown pass to Dan Klecko

January 21, 2007 (Colts 38-34 win over the Patriots)

-Would the Colts finally get over the hurdle? That was the pregame hype heading into this AFC Championship matchup. Down 21-3 late in the first half, the Colts clawed back and it was Manning finding the defensive lineman/fullback in Klecko for a one-yard score to tie the contest. The Colts would need three more scoring drives to cement their first trip to a Super Bowl in the Indianapolis era.

Manning's 6-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison

October 17, 2005 (Colts 45-28 win over the Rams)

-No other duo in the NFL has hooked up for more touchdowns than Manning and Harrison. The record-breaker came back in 2005. Manning connected with Harrison for a six-yard touchdown to give the duo 86 career touchdowns, breaking a tie with Steve Young and Jerry Rice for the most touchdowns by a quarterback and receiver pair.


Manning's 3-yard touchdown pass to James Mungro

December 26, 2004 (Colts 34-31 win over the Chargers)

-We go back to Week 16 of the 2004 season in Manning's record-breaking campaign. Before Stokley's score put Manning all alone the NFL record books, it was the creativity by the Colts signal caller to tie the single-season mark for most touchdown passes. Manning hit running back James Mungro on a three-yard shovel pass midway through the third quarter for the 48th touchdown pass of the season for No. 18.

Manning's 11-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison

October 10, 1999 (Colts 27-24 loss to the Dolphins)

-As Manning has gone down through his list of thank-you's in reaching the number of 510 touchdown passes, the offensive line he's played behind are on those lists. Manning's 100th career touchdown catch was a product of ample time to throw and the precision from the quarterback to a perfect end zone corner route by Harrison.

Manning's 1-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne

November 15, 2009 (Colts 35-34 win over the Patriots)

-During Manning's 14 seasons in Indianapolis, there might not be a finer home, regular season comeback than this one. Down 31-14 in the fourth quarter, the comeback was complete when Manning found Wayne's outstretched hands for a one-yard touchdown with just 13 seconds remaining. The victory continued a streak of 18 straight regular season wins for Indianapolis.

Manning's 80-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison

November 28, 2005 (Colts 26-7 win over the Steelers)

-The prime time spotlight never seemed to faze Manning and the Colts. On this Monday Night Football contest, Manning hit Marvin Harrison 80-yard touchdown on the team's first play from scrimmage. The win was the 11th straight to start the 2005 season for the Colts and the duo of Manning and Harrison would go on to hook up 112 times for touchdowns.

Manning's 46-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison

January 4, 2004 (Colts 41-10 win over the Broncos)

-Manning's first playoff win came in dominant fashion from the future Hall of Famer. The highlight came when Manning and Harrison hooked up for a 46-yard touchdown as the receiver made a diving catch, no one touched him, then popped up to run another 30 yards for the score with Broncos defenders stunned watching. It was an evening where Manning completed 22-of-26 passes for 337 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions for a perfect passer rating.
