But Brees also would have to outpace Tom Brady, who has 500 TD passes, the only active player with more than Brees in that category. And you've ruined that for me.
As you can see, Brees did it in style with a long touchdown connection and, on cue, the sports world opened its arms to congratulate him on what is an awe-inspiring accomplishment.
When the night began, Brees was sitting third on the all-time list with 71,740 passing yards, 201 yards behind Manning for the No. 1 spot.

Intel's 9th generation processors are here to outperform the competition

Pompeo seeks allied unity in dealing with North Korea
Japan has been wary of Trump's initiative, fearing it could affect its long-standing security relationship with the U.S. Pompeo will be in Tokyo Saturday and Sunday and has already met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe there.
Brees has shredded the National Football League for 18 years, even if his early days in San Diego were rocky at times. "I'll be able to reflect on it maybe a little bit more when my career is done".
Brees came into Week 5 not only leading the NFL in completion percentage, but with a mark higher than the 72.0 he posted previous year, which set a single-season league record.
On a more serious note, Manning said Brees broke the record "the right way". 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. Behind three touchdowns from Brees, New Orleans cruised to a 43-19 win over the Washington Redskins.
Congratulations on such a great career that is still going strong for Drew Brees.
