Peterson injured in loss vs. Saints; MRI set

Peterson injured in loss vs. Saints; MRI set

Brees broke Peyton Manning's National Football League record for passing yards with his 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith in the second quarter.

Smith, meanwhile, was off-target nearly all night, overthrowing open receivers or zinging passes into the turf at their feet.

Brees' family was gathered on the sidelines so he could share the moment with them.

A look at the good (Hail!) and bad (Fail!) from the Redskins' 43-19 loss to the Saints in New Orleans. Manning compiled his 71,940 passing yards in 266 games.

"I knew we were within striking distance" of the record, Brees said.

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

In a pre-taped message, Manning said: "All your hard work and dedication has paid off. Congratulations and I'm proud of you". In it, Norman struggles - like, really struggles - with the seemingly simple task of removing his jersey for the traditional swap with a Saints player.




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.

Brees, who is in his 18th National Football League season, led the Saints to victory in the 2009 season Super Bowl and was the MVP of the game.

In a season where sideline protests have reached a huge decline during the National Anthem, Kamara is one of the most powerful statements since Colin Kaepernick first explained why he was taking a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner. "It doesn't feel like it's been 13 years".

"I didn't set out on this journey to break these records". Brees surpassed Hall-of-Famer Johnny Unitas' streak of 47 straight - which had stood since 1960. Brees completed passes to nine different receivers, including one he completed one to himself on a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage.

With the game well in hand after the two-minute warning, Payton subbed Brees out of the game. "What's different between Monday night and Sunday night?"

After the Saints extended their lead to 13-3 on a drive that included numerous costly penalties on the Redskins, Alex Smith and Adrian Peterson once again began working to put points on the board.
