Brees makes history in style, Saints thrash Redskins

Drew Brees

On a night when Drew Brees set the all-time record for passing yards, the Redskins were outclassed in every respect. Monday night against the Redskins, he shattered the record in the 2nd quarter with an incredible 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith.

It also took Brees fewer games than Manning to pass for 71,740 yards - Brees achieved the feat in 253 games compared to Manning's 266.

The Washington Redskins went into their Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints with good vibes and an upbeat attitude.

"It's great to have him back", Payton said, stressing the Ingram's presence reduces the physical toll on fellow running back Alvin Kamara.

Army spokesman Jonathan Conricus called it a "terrorist attack" but added that other unspecified factors were involved. Palestinian militant groups praised the attack, calling it revenge for Israeli "crimes" towards the Palestinians.

Ingram was due back on the field when Brees was predicted to break Manning's record, leaving many to wonder if Ingram's return would be overshadowed. Running back Adrian Peterson, another new addition to the Redskins, ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns.

"All your hard work and dedication has paid off", Manning said in a pre-taped message. The San Diego Chargers took the 6-foot Brees at the beginning of the second round of the 2001 draft, but allowed him to leave in free agency after a major throwing shoulder injury at the end of the 2005 season.

Paired with an offensive mastermind in head coach Sean Payton, Brees produced an NFL-record five 5,000-yard passing seasons. "It doesn't feel like it's been 13 years".

Before Drew Brees could blow kisses to the adoring Superdome crowd, before he could embrace his wife and children on the sideline, the Saints' 39-year-old quarterback had to shred one of the NFL's top pass defenses with ruthless efficiency. Favre also stands between first and third, but considering Brees has thrown for less than 200 yards just twice since the start of 2014, you can do the math. 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.
