Brees tracker Counting down the yards to breaking the NFL all-time passing record

The Saints signal-caller also is one touchdown pass away from being the fourth quarterback in National Football League history to throw 500 touchdowns in his career, with Tom Brady achieving the feat in Thursday's win over the Colts. The rest of us are going for 2nd place tonight in the dad department.

Naturally, plenty of sports figures took to social media to congratulate Brees on Monday night. "You can accomplish anything in life, if you're willing to work for it".

With the game in hand, Payton subbed Brees off the field after the two-minute warning so the quarterback could have one more interaction with the appreciative crowd.

"You've ruined that for me".

Brees surpassed Peyton Manning's previous record of 71,940 yards on a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith late in the second quarter against the Redskins.

After pulling a victory out of his hat out of nowhere, Lewis went on to give one of the wildest interviews in UFC history. White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt".

Brees now has 1545 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.

Over the summer, Manning said Brees "deserves" the record.

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.

On a more serious note, Manning said Brees broke the record "the right way". "Credit to him for playing as long as he has, at such a high level". He also owns 5 of the 9 single seasons with 5,000 or more yards passing.

"Drew, for 1,000 days I've held the record for all time passing yards in the NFL".
