Peyton Manning sends hilarious congratulations to Drew Brees

Entering the Monday Night Football showdown between the Saints and the Redskins, Drew Brees needed just 201 yards to pass Peyton Manning (71,940 yards) as the NFL's all-time passing leader. Brees still needs 42 touchdown passes to surpass Manning's record of 539, something the Saints quarterback could achieve next season if he maintains his current level of play.

He broke the record in style, too, hitting rookie Tre'Quan Smith for a 62 yard touchdown down the right sideline. Brees will go down as one of the best quarterbacks EVER to play the game. So, thank you very much. He had a breakout campaign in 2004, but by then the Chargers had drafted Philip Rivers with the fourth overall pick, and in the final game of the 2005 season, Brees suffered a major shoulder injury.

Manning, who was surpassed in the record books, joined forces with the Denver Broncos to acknowledge the feat with a amusing video.

He's very competitive and here, I think Watford is starting the season very well because they are playing very well. Leno had to come on for his Premier League debut moments before half-time after Cech limped off.

Drew Brees is the NFL's all-time passer.

The league halted competition in order to honor Bree's achievement.

Brees finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards with a total of three touchdowns, bringing New Orleans to four wins and one loss this season so far.

Congratulations on such a great career that is still going strong for Drew Brees.
