New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees Becomes NFL’s All-Time Yards Passing Leader

Jay Gruden Alex Smith preview NO-WAS

He also received a rather humorous congratulatory message from Peyton Manning telling him that he held the record for 1,000 days and those were the happiest 1,000 days of his life until Brees ruined it.

Click on the video above to watch as Brees broke Peyton Manning's record with a stunning 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith in the second quarter of the New Orleans Saints' Monday night win over the Washington Redskins.

Brees, who tapped his heart and pointed to the spectators in the sold-out stadium, handed the football used on the play to a Hall of Fame official. Brees, meanwhile, was able to share the moment with his wife and children down on the sideline. He surpassed Favre earlier this season to become the NFL's all-time completion leader.

Drew Brees is the NFL's all-time passer.

And a few pass-catchers and defenders alike.

Manchester City's tactics showed Pep Guardiola's respect for Liverpool - Virgil van Dijk
Klopp's liverpool looked nervous throughout the game, with Salah, Mane and Firmino all off the pace. Sunday's match didn't turn out quite so exciting, as the sides played out a cagey 0-0 draw.

Brees, who turns 40 in January, led the Saints to a 2010 Super Bowl victory, taking Most Valuable Player honors in a 31-17 triumph over Manning's Indianapolis Colts. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

Brees came into Week 5 not only leading the NFL in completion percentage, but with a mark higher than the 72.0 he posted previous year, which set a single-season league record.

Brees, who's 39 years old now, has put together a superb career to this point, with a Super Bowl victory and MVP honors in that game.

Brees told reporters this week he "never would have dreamed" of setting the all-time passing mark when he first entered the league with the San Diego Chargers in 2001. "I think touchdowns probably has a little more meaning to a quarterback, because it means that you got six points, and it means you were doing something good for your team".

Other quarterbacks, past and present, also weighed in.
