Brees is all-time passing leader

Brees is all-time passing leader

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) responds to the crowd after breaking the NFL all-time passing yards record in the first half of an NFL football game against the Washington Redskins in New Orleans, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018. 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.

Highlights of the New Orleans Saints' clash with the Washington Redskins in week five of the NFL.

Over the summer, Manning said Brees "deserves" the record.

Brees has 250 yards passing and two touchdowns at halftime. In the press box, the Superdome catering staff served "beefy mac", a meal of macaroni with ground beef that has always been one of Brees' traditional meals on the night before games.




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. However, Saints coach Sean Peyton took a chance on the 6'0ft quarterback and the tandem eventually won a Super Bowl, ironically against Peyton Manning's Indianapolis Colts.

"Also, let this serve as the congratulations for the touchdown record because as you can see I'm very busy", Manning added.

Brees finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards with a total of three touchdowns, bringing New Orleans to four wins and one loss this season so far.
