Drew Brees Becomes NFL's All-Time Leader in Passing Yards

NFL players congratulate Drew Brees on becoming the league's all-time passing leader

Week 5 of the 2018 National Football League season produced quite a few noteworthy moments, but, as Monday evening approached, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees took center stage.

The 39-year-old Brees passed Peyton Manning who held the record at 71,940 yards and Brett Favre who was in second place with 71,838 yards. Monday night against the Redskins, he shattered the record in the 2nd quarter with an incredible 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith.

Highlights of the New Orleans Saints' clash with the Washington Redskins in week five of the NFL. But one thing the microphones picked up which wasn't immediately noticed was what Brees told his children after he broke the record.

Conor McGregor Has Already Called Dana White Asking For Rematch
While Khabib vs McGregor II would definitely do numbers, there are other fighters who are looking for a title shot as well. Twice now, McGregor's taken to social media alluding to the fact he wants another crack at Nurmagomedov.

Brees entered the game needing 201 yards for the record. Shown on the video slicing tomatoes, Manning deadpanned that his time as the career yards passing leader have been "the greatest thousand days of my life". 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.

The Saints took a chance on Brees in 2006, and the payoff has been extraordinary. "I think touchdowns probably has a little more meaning to a quarterback, because it means that you got six points, and it means you were doing something good for your team". Yards, as you all know, cannot necessarily mean winning games.

The game continued after with the Saints unsuccessfully attempted a two-point conversion - with Brees notably split out as a receiver, at least in theory, while backup quarterback Taysom Hill took the snap and tried to run into the end zone.
