Drew Brees sets all-time National Football League passing yards record, passing Peyton Manning

Drew Brees breaks Peyton Manning’s NFL record for passing yards

Drew Brees breaks Peyton Manning’s NFL record for passing yards

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. Brees hit Tre'Quan Smith down the sideline for the record and began to build his edge over Manning as Smith went 62 yards for a touchdown. The game came to a halt in order to honor Brees' accomplishment, and plenty of people on social media took time to pay tribute to the veteran quarterback for his impressive feat. Then, in the second quarter, having passed Favre but still needing 35 more yards to beat Manning, Brees found Smith wide open deep down the right sideline to break the record in stunning fashion. As the Superdome crowd gave Brees a standing ovation, he removed his helmet and hugged his wife Brittany and their four children.

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.

The Redskins came in allowing fewer than 190 yards passing per game and spoke of doing what they could to prevent Brees from making history.

"This is one of the great stories in National Football League history - a guy who was told was told every reason why he would never be the guy", Joe Tessitore, the "MNF" announcer, said before the game (via the Advocate). "Congratulations and I'm proud of you".

McSally said that, if no additional information emerges from the Federal Bureau of Investigation review, she supports confirming Kavanaugh.

Saints officials said Brees also would hand his uniform over to the Hall of Fame after the game.

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

Mark Ingram had run for touchdowns of one and two yards and Brees flipped a 1-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill for other Saints scoring in the first half. He also owns 5 of the 9 single seasons with 5,000 or more yards passing.
