New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees Becomes NFL’s All-Time Yards Passing Leader

Brees tossed a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith to put his New Orleans Saints up 26-6 against the Washington Redskins in the second quarter.

Peterson was injured late in the first half of Monday night's 43-19 loss at the New Orleans Saints, leaving him on the bench for all but two offensive snaps in the second half. Manning compiled his 71,940 passing yards in 266 games.

The 39-year-old Brees has enjoyed a storied career that has spanned 18 seasons.

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

"I just popped it back in and braced it up at halftime", said Peterson, via the Washington Times.

The New Orleans Saints dynamic running back stepped out for interviews wearing a Colin Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers jersey and a red hat reading, "Make Africa Home Again". Brees retrieved the ball from Smith and then handed it to David Baker, president of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Brees removed his helmet, held out his arm to salute the crowd and hugged his wife, Brittany, and children on the sideline. "It's just truly been a dream come true", Brees said.

Brees now has 72,103 yards for his career and owns one of the NFL's prestige passing records to go along with having completed more passes than any player in history.

Brees set the National Football League all-time completions record last month with number 6,301 to break Favre's career mark.
