Drew Brees is the NFL’s new record holder for the most career passing yards.

The New Orleans Saints’ star quarterback needed just 201 passing yards on Monday night against the Washington Redskins to surpass Peyton Manning’s all-time record of 71,940 which was set in 2015.

Brees broke the record in remarkable fashion when he hit wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith for a 62-yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

“Hey boys, how ‘bout that? I love you guys so much. You are gonna accomplish anything in your life if you are willing to work for it, right?”

Those words are true, Brees worked to get those records. He never set out to break them when he entered the NFL, he just worked hard and competed game in and game out and then accomplished one of the greatest records ever in the league’s history.

The one-time Super Bowl champion added the accomplishment to his long list of achievements, including the most completions and 300-yard games, which he added to as well.

Brees passed for 12,238 yards as a member of the then San Diego Chargers from 2001-05, but his assault on the NFL record books really began once he joined the Saints as a free agent in 2006.

Paired with an offensive mastermind in head coach Sean Payton, Brees produced an NFL record five 5,000-yard passing seasons. No other quarterback has more than one such year.

Brees and his Saints would go on to easily defeat the Redskins on the Monday Night Football by a score of 43-19. He finishes the game with 363 yards passing which puts him at 72,303 for his career.

Next up for Brees is the 500 club. His next passing touchdown will be his 500th which only Manning, Farve and Tom Brady have already done.
