Drew Brees is now the NFL's all-time leading passer!
Brees finished the game with 72 103 all-time passing yards after moving past Manning's 71 940 and Brett Favre's total of 71 838 in the second quarter. And then the big moment came on a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith.
Brees, who tapped his heart and pointed to the spectators in the sold-out stadium, handed the football used on the play to a Hall of Fame official. As the Superdome crowd gave Brees a standing ovation, he removed his helmet and hugged his wife Brittany and their four children. It makes me proud and it makes me extremely grateful - extremely grateful for the opportunity to play this game, to play it as long as I've played it, to have wound up here in New Orleans. He surpassed Favre earlier this season to become the NFL's all-time completion leader. His family joined him on the field, and TV cameras even caught a few fans shedding tears. He later truly congratulates Brees for all of his historic accomplishments and shows a picture of the two together from when Brees was in college and Manning was in his third National Football League season.
Brees came into Week 5 not only leading the NFL in completion percentage, but with a mark higher than the 72.0 he posted past year, which set a single-season league record.
