Brees breaks NFL's all-time passing yards record

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees set the National Football League all-time passing yardage record on Monday, breaking Peyton Manning's old mark on a 62-yard touchdown pass against the Washington Redskins.

Brees needed only 201 yards passing to eclipse Peyton Manning's all-time mark of 71,940. He set the mark on a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith.

Shortly after, the Denver Broncos tweeted a video of Peyton Manning congratulating Brees as the new passing leader.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) celebrates after a touchdown during the second quarter against the Washington Redskins at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The record is now held by fellow great, Peyton Manning. They could have bounced back from the 38 yards lost on penalties, but allowed Ingram to establish a steady run game - and of course, Brees' record outing. "I don't have time to keep doing these videos for you".

Brees, who turns 40 in January, sparked the Saints to a 2010 Super Bowl victory, taking Most Valuable Player honors in a 31-17 triumph over Manning's Indianapolis Colts.

This is what we're told happened in regards to Paul facing off with security. "You've got to fight back". This sparked a brawl inside and outside the octagon, which involved members of Nurmagomedov's team.

"All your hard work and dedication have paid off", Manning said while holding up a photo of himself and Brees standing side-by-side in 2000, when Brees was still at Purdue and Manning was a third-year pro.

Saints officials said Brees also would hand his uniform over to the Hall of Fame after the game. Brees suffered a major injury to his throwing shoulder in late 2005, playing for the San Diego Chargers.

Head coach Sean Payton says he'll prepare his team like it's any other week. Brees and Colston hooked up 705 times for 7907 yards and 72 touchdowns. Brees surpassed Hall-of-Famer Johnny Unitas' streak of 47 straight - which had stood since 1960.

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.

The Saints and their fans have had a lot to cheer about on Monday.
