Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) -
Peyton Manning didn't waste much time surpassing Brett Favre.
Getting a hold of the record-breaking football wasn't so easy.
Manning tossed his 509th touchdown pass in the second quarter to break Favre's NFL record and threw for four scores overall in three quarters of work as the Denver Broncos routed the San Francisco 49ers 42-17 on Sunday night.
The five-time NFL MVP Manning fired touchdown passes on three of his first four drives, with his 8-yarder to Demaryius Thomas on a 3rd-and-goal in the front right part of the end zone setting the record at the 3:09 mark of the second.
Geno's best isn't good enough for Rex

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Rex Ryan and the New York Jets got the "Good Geno" on Thursday night and it still wasn't enough in a heartbreaking 27-25 loss to the New England Patriots.
Smith didn't throw an interception for the first time this season, made good decisions throughout, and even used his mobility to extend plays and keep drives alive.
All that did, however, was hand the game over to Nick Folk, while asking the veteran kicker to win it with a 58-yard salvo from Connecticut, one which was blocked by Chris Jones after some solid "preventative officiating" from Bill Leavy's crew which had all of Jets nation up in arms on Friday morning.
