Peyton Manning jokingly shames Drew Brees for breaking his passing record

Drew Brees breaks Peyton Manning’s NFL record for passing yards

Brees hit rookie Tre'Quan Smith with a 62-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter against Washington to break Peyton Manning's previous record of 71,940 yards.

Another historic day in the career of one of the games' best.

"Drew for 1,000 days I've held the record for all-time passing yards in the NFL".

Naturally, plenty of sports figures took to social media to congratulate Brees on Monday night. Brees has passed for more than 59,000 yards and more than 400 TDs in 12-plus seasons for New Orleans, smashing every meaningful Saints passing record while helping long-frustrated franchise win its first Super Bowl in 2010 and go to the playoffs six times. And thanks to you, that's over now. How about that? Hey, I love you guys so much. I have nothing left to look forward to except slicing my tomatoes, making dinner for my family, putting together this wedge salad.

Manning taped a message to Brees, which was shown in the stadium when he broke the record.

It's good to know that, even in retirement, Manning still has his sense of humor.

Brees also led the National Football League a year ago in completions (386) and yards per attempt (8.1), and while his passing yardage and touchdowns were down from previous seasons, that reflected in large part the fact that his Saints were unusually effective in 2017 on defense and at running the ball.

He earned a shoutout from his alma matter.
