Russell Wilson is the latest in a long line of successful quarterbacks who have played for the Denver Broncos. Wilson won Pro Bowl honors, awards, and a Super Bowl during his time in Seattle, and he'll look to make even more history now as a Bronco.

It turns out Wilson has the chance to break an NFL record this season that was set by Peyton Manning during his time in Denver.

As was first pointed out by John Breech of CBS Sports, Wilson could become the fifth QB in history to notch a win against all 32 teams. And if he joins that elusive club this year, he'll knock off Manning as the youngest to ever do it, since he'd only be 33 or 34 years old, while Manning completed that accomplishment at 38.

The nine-time Pro Bowler had spent the entirety of his 10-year NFL career as a member of the Seahawks, so he'll now potentially get to beat Seattle for the first time ever when they meet in Week 1.

Wilson also has one more team he needs to knock down, as he's never recorded a win against the Los Angeles Chargers. He'll get two opportunities against the Chargers (Week 6 and 18), so he could potentially join the all-32 club before his 34th birthday on Nov. 29.

Should Wilson hit this milestone, he'll join Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Brett Favre as the only QBs in history to defeat all 32 franchises.
