  • What Sean Payton and the Saints are saying about #NOvsWAS

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.

Brees surpassed Peyton Manning's previous record of 71,940 yards with that touchdown connection, and it was a pretty special moment to behold in New Orleans. With 2:46 left in the second quarter, Brees connected with wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith on a 62-yard touchdown pass to eclipse Manning for the all-time record.

"In all seriousness, Drew, congratulations on this record, you've done it the right way", Manning said. "Thanks to you, that's over now. All your hard work and dedication has paid off".

Brees is in his 18th season out of Purdue.

The game was briefly interrupted so Brees could celebrate with his teammates, family and coach Sean Payton.

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.

The 39-year-old, who has been playing in the league since 2001, was just the fifth quarterback ever to pass for more than 53,063 yards - and is on pace to hold the record for quite some time.

The game featured other touches meant to honor Brees.

Naturally, plenty of sports figures took to social media to congratulate Brees on Monday night.
