Drew Brees becomes NFL all-time yards passing leader

Drew Brees is the NFL's all-time passer

Brees is roughly 5,000 yards ahead of the next active player on the all-time passing list - No. 4 Tom Brady at 67,077. Brees threw his 498th touchdown pass on the 62-yard throw to Tre'Quan Smith on the play on which the quarterback moved past Manning.

Officials stopped the game and the history-making ball was handed over to Pro Football Hall of Fame officials waiting on the sideline.

"Just so grateful for the opportunity to play this game and to have played it so long and to have the teammates that I have, and the New Orleans Saints organization, and this great city and this great fan base".

Manning's record stood since 2015 when the future Hall of Famer passed Brett Favre's mark of 71,838 yards, which had been in place since 2007. To save time, he also congratulates Brees for passing the all-time touchdown record at a future point.

What a night it is in New Orleans.

In the video, Manning can be seen cutting tomatoes when he is told Brees just broke his all-time passing yardage record. "Congratulations and I'm proud of you".

"All your hard work and dedication have paid off", Manning said while holding up a photo of himself and Brees standing side-by-side in 2000, when Brees was still at Purdue and Manning was a third-year pro. He had a breakout campaign in 2004, but by then the Chargers had drafted Philip Rivers with the fourth overall pick, and in the final game of the 2005 season, Brees suffered a major shoulder injury.

Mark Ingram had run for touchdowns of one and two yards and Brees flipped a 1-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill for other Saints scoring in the first half.

"He deserves it. It's been an unbelievable run", Payton said. He has also led the league in completions six times, in completion percentage five times and in passing touchdowns four times.

It also took Brees fewer games than Manning to pass for 71,740 yards - Brees achieved the feat in 253 games compared to Manning's 266.
