Eli Manning throws 300th touchdown, ties John Elway

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning made history in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens, throwing his 300th touchdown and tying a legendary name—John Elway.

Down 10-0 and after losing star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to injury, Manning threw a dime of a pass that highlight reels will play for a long time.

It went to Roger Lewis:

The praise for the play was universal:

Here’s an updated look at the all-time list:

Given the fact Manning is 36 years old and has thrown 30 or more touchdowns in each of his past two seasons, he looks to have a strong chance at passing Fran Tarkenton and Dan Marion to catch fellow modern players such as Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

Knowing Manning, his focus only resides on beating the Ravens and getting his 2-3 team back on track. But it’s great to see the oft-forgotten little Manning brother continue to make a climb of his own in the sport’s record books.

Where Manning lands is anyone’s guess, but joining Elway in history is quite the achievement.
