NFL: New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

Philip Rivers became the sixth quarterback in NFL history to throw 400 career touchdown passes when he connected with Indianapolis Colts teammate Mo Alie-Cox on a 1-yard scoring pass in the second quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday.

The pass to his tight end on first-and-goal from the Jets 1-yard line gave Indianapolis a 14-7 lead with 14:13 left in the first half.

Rivers also became the sixth player to reach 60,000 career passing yards when he completed an 11-yard pass to Nyheim Hines on the Colts' final offensive play of the first half. He finished with 217 passing yards and the one TD pass in the Colts' 36-7 rout of the Jets, leaving him with 60,065 passing yards.

Rivers is in his first season with the Colts after spending 16 seasons with the Chargers -- the first 13 in San Diego, the last three in Los Angeles.

Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints entered Sunday as the all-time leader with 550 touchdown passes. Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is second with 547 after throwing three scoring passes Sunday.

The other players in the 400-touchdown club are Peyton Manning (539), Brett Favre (508) and Dan Marino (420).

The same five players have topped 60,000 yards -- Brees (77,888), Brady (75,324), Manning (71,940), Favre (71,838) and Marino (61,361).
