What Saints QB Drew Brees Told His Kids After Breaking Record

Brees completed 26-of-29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns to spark the Saints' victory, overtaking Manning for the career mark with a scoring toss to Tre'Quan Smith down the right sideline with 2:36 remaining in the second quarter.

Brees entered Monday 43 passing touchdowns short of Manning's National Football League record of 539 for a career, meaning that he is on pace to top that mark in 2019.

The Saints defeated the Redskins, 43-19, and Brees finished the game one touchdown pass short of 500 for his career (only Manning, Brett Favre and Tom Brady have thrown for more). The former Indianapolis Colts and Broncos gunslinger set the all-time passing yardage mark in 2015 while playing for the Broncos against the Kansas City Chiefs. You and I have come a long way since this picture back in 2000, when you were in college and I was in my third year in the NFL.

Peyton Manning's really happy you broke his record.

Heading into halftime, Brees now needs 42 passing touchdowns to move past Manning's all-time record of 539.

"It's probably what I tell them every night before they go to bed, which is ... you can accomplish anything in life if you're willing to work for it". He now has 72,103 career passing yards - a number that should grow much larger before Brees retires. Thanks to you, that's over now and you've ruined that for me. "So I still have the touchdown record, right?" But it was what Brees said after the game that stunned millions of fans.

Manning proceeds to share he is now left with nothing to look forward to but making a salad for his family. 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.
