"Drew, for 1,000 days I've held the record for all-time passing yards in the NFL". During the second quarter of the Saints' game against the Redskins, Brees connected with Tre'Quan Smith on a 62-yard touchdown pass to claim the record. Brees, meanwhile, was able to share the moment with his wife and children down on the sideline. He needed 201 yards to surpass Manning's mark - the TD gave him 228 yards on the night and the Saints went on to win the game, 43-19.

Hazard still dreaming of joining Real Madrid
I don't have time but we will talk about my future soon. "And it is not just because he scored a goal or that he made an assist". Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has chose to reaffirm his desire to join Real Madrid , once again, publicly.
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.
The Saints took a chance on Brees in 2006, and the payoff has been extraordinary.
Anticipating that Brees might break the record against his team, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden told the Athletic's Tarik El-Bashir before the game, "It's a great accomplishment, man". Brees was fourth on the list heading into Monday night at 496.
The game featured other touches meant to honour Brees.
