Manning could also become the NFL’s all-time winningest quarterback with a victory on Sunday. He entered the game tied with Favre for 184 career regular-season wins.
Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino is the only other player in NFL history to top 60,000 passing yards (besides Manning and Favre).
