Drew Brees becomes NFL all-time yards passing leader

Share

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.

Before Drew Brees could blow kisses to the adoring Superdome crowd, before he could embrace his wife and children on the sideline, the Saints' 39-year-old quarterback had to shred one of the NFL's top pass defenses with ruthless efficiency. Brees hugged coach Sean Payton and his family on the sidelines.

Content that he still holds the all-time record of 539 passing touchdowns, Manning is informed that Brees is on pace to break that, too. To save time, he also congratulates Brees for passing the all-time touchdown record at a future point.

And, the previous record holder Peyton Manning sent him congratulations.

On a more serious note, Manning said Brees broke the record "the right way".

Another historic day in the career of one of the games' best.

This record is just the latest entry in Brees' Hall of Fame-bound career. And you've ruined that for me. "All of your hard work and dedication have paid off". He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

The Saints took a chance in free agency on Brees, who is also undersized for an National Football League quarterback at a listed 6-0, and it paid off immediately.

"It's great to have him back", Payton said, stressing the Ingram's presence reduces the physical toll on fellow running back Alvin Kamara.

Norman's defensive holding penalty during Brees' incomplete pass sustained the Saints' first scoring drive, capped by Ingram's short touchdown run.

Brees and Smith also combined on a 35-yard touchdown pass and Taysom Hill ran one yard for touchdowns in the third quarter while Will Lutz added a 44-yard field goal for a 43-13 New Orleans lead early in the fourth quarter.
