Peyton Manning has hilarious reaction to Drew Brees breaking his 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.

Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints looks to pass against the Minnesota Vikings during the first half of the NFC Divisional Playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium on January 14, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Officials stopped the game and the history-making ball was handed over to Pro Football Hall of Fame officials waiting on the sideline. Brees hugged coach Sean Payton and his family on the sidelines.

Highlights of the New Orleans Saints' clash with the Washington Redskins in week five of the NFL.

Manning's record stood since 2015 when the future Hall of Famer passed Brett Favre's mark of 71,838 yards, which had been in place since 2007.

Click on the video above to watch the moment Brees became the NFL's all-time leading passer with a 62-yard TD strike.

And a few pass-catchers and defenders alike.

Brees' teammates ran toward their quarterback as he jogged behind the play, and a group of them formed a jumping, celebrating mass of black and gold next to the Saints' fleur-de-lis emblem on the 50-yard line.


Manning later shared a tribute video with Brees.

The game featured other touches meant to honor Brees.

Then he gets serious and congratulates Brees for real.

You just knew the man was going to do it in style. And you've ruined that for me.

With the game well in hand after the two-minute warning, Payton subbed Brees out of the game.

Brees and Smith also combined on a 35-yard touchdown pass and Taysom Hill ran one yard for touchdowns in the third quarter while Will Lutz added a 44-yard field goal for a 43-13 New Orleans lead early in the fourth quarter.

Brees told reporters this week he "never would have dreamed" of setting the all-time passing mark when he first entered the league with the San Diego Chargers in 2001.
