Earlier this season, Brees broke Brett Favre's career record of 6,300 completions. He surpassed it in magnificent style in the first half of Monday Night's game, when he hit a wide open Tre'Quan Smith down the sideline for a deep touchdown. Brees removed his helmet and hugged his wife, Brittany, and four children on the sideline.
Highlights of the New Orleans Saints' clash with the Washington Redskins in week five of the NFL. 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.
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. 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.
Brees is quite the unlikely all-time leader considering his draft stock coming into the league wasn't high as he went to the then San Diego Chargers in 2001 out of Purdue.
The Saints took a chance on Brees in 2006, and the payoff has been extraordinary. How about that? Hey, I love you guys so much. He led the Saints to a Super Bowl win over Manning and the Colts in 2009. He has 499 career touchdown passes.
