Peyton Manning Congratulated Drew Brees On Breaking His Passing Record

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

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees topped Manning's mark of 71,940 yards Monday, accomplishing the feat in the latter's hometown of New Orleans, during a nationally televised game against the Washington Redskins. Even at 39 years old, the same age Manning was when he last threw a pass, Brees is still playing like one of the of the NFL's best quarterbacks. Brees threw his 498th touchdown pass on the 62-yard throw to Tre'Quan Smith on the play on which the quarterback moved past Manning. It makes me proud and it makes me extremely grateful - extremely grateful for the opportunity to play this game, to play it as long as I've played it, to have wound up here in New Orleans. But one thing the microphones picked up which wasn't immediately noticed was what Brees told his children after he broke the record.

And a few pass-catchers and defenders alike.

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

The game featured other touches meant to honor Brees.

City officials estimated there were 3,000 to 4,000 people still in line when Trump took the stage just after 6:30 p.m. He urged Minnesota voters to vote for Smith's Republican challenger Karin Housley.

Brees, who already holds the single-season record for completion rate at 72 percent last season, finished the game a remarkable 26 of 29 for 363 yards, no interceptions and three touchdowns - two of them going to Smith, a third-round draft choice out of Central Florida has played just five National Football League games and is now immortalized because of his role in Brees' record-breaking pass. You've ruined that for me.

With the game well in hand after the two-minute warning, Payton subbed Brees out of the game.

A second-round pick by the Chargers in 2001 after setting records at Purdue, Brees spent five seasons in San Diego as his career got off to a somewhat slow start.

"It's great to have him back", Payton said, stressing the Ingram's presence reduces the physical toll on fellow running back Alvin Kamara. He finished the game completing 26 of 29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns. He also owns 5 of the 9 single seasons with 5,000 or more yards passing.
