Drew Brees Isn't Focused On Passing Yardage Record

Drew Brees Isn't Focused On Passing Yardage Record

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints head into Monday night's game against the Washington Redskins with the quarterback needing 201 yards to pass Peyton Manning as the NFL's all-time leader in passing yardage.

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.

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

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.

After a long bye week, the Washington Redskins return to action in a Monday Night Football matchup against the New Orleans Saints.




"It's great to have him back", Payton said, stressing the Ingram's presence reduces the physical toll on fellow running back Alvin Kamara.

Manning, a New Orleans native whose father, Archie, starred for the Saints, could not attend the game because of a scheduling conflict.

Brees turns 40 in January.

In a pre-taped message, Manning said: "All your hard work and dedication has paid off. Congratulations and I'm proud of you". The San Diego Chargers took the 6-foot Brees at the beginning of the second round of the 2001 draft, but allowed him to leave in free agency after a major throwing shoulder injury at the end of the 2005 season. And in doing so, deliver one more moment for the city he's called home since 2006. "It doesn't feel like it's been 13 years". It was running back Mark Ingram's first game after serving a four-game suspension and he powered his way to two first-half touchdowns and had a Pierre Thomas-esque screen pass go for 27 yards. Brees surpassed Hall-of-Famer Johnny Unitas' streak of 47 straight - which had stood since 1960.

The game featured other touches meant to honor Brees. As Teddy Bridgwater ran onto the field and Brees trotted to the sideline, Brees got one last ovation before fans began chanting: "Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints".
