Brees, 39, now sits on 71,740 passing yards, He only needs 201 yards to take over the top spot in National Football League history.

On a night when Drew Brees set the all-time record for passing yards, the Redskins were outclassed in every respect.

"It has truly been a dream come true". "I'll be able to reflect on it maybe a little bit more when my career is done". I'm sure Drew would feel the same way. The ball was handed over to Pro Football Hall of Fame officials. Everyone has a hand in this, and I hope they know that, " Brees would say to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

This was the fifth straight game Washington hasn't scored a touchdown in the third quarter, dating back to past year. He had 250 by halftime.

Brees broke the record on a 62-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith in the second quarter.

In the second quarter, Montae Nicholson's unnecessary roughness penalty for leveling Ingram on Ryan Kerrigan's third-down sack extended a drive that ended with Brees' short TD pass to tight end Josh Hill.

SPORTbible recently had the opportunity to speak with Hazard , who praised the influence of Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kanté. And he is thriving in Sarri's more expansive set-up after two seasons under the more cautious approach of Antonio Conte .

Brees has thrown 8 touchdown passes this season, zero interceptions. 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.

This game also features the return of Adrian Peterson to New Orleans. However, he had pre-recorded a congratulatory message played on the Superdome's video boards.

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. "Congratulations and I'm proud of you". The record is now held by fellow great, Peyton Manning.

Ingram was due back on the field when Brees was predicted to break Manning's record, leaving many to wonder if Ingram's return would be overshadowed. "You and I have come a long way since this picture". "And so I'm still very focused on that", Brees said. Brees suffered a major injury to his throwing shoulder in late 2005, playing for the San Diego Chargers. No other quarterback has more than one such campaign. "It doesn't feel like it's been 13 years".

But Brees wasn't the only one to make history on Monday Night. In the press box, the Superdome catering staff served "beefy mac", a meal of macaroni with ground beef that has always been one of Brees' traditional meals on the night before games.

The Saints and their fans have had a lot to cheer about on Monday.
