Drew Brees is now the NFL's all-time leading passer, breaking Peyton Manning's record for the most career passing yards with a gorgeous 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback entered the "Monday Night Football" contest against the Washington Redskins needing 201 yards to pass both Manning and Brett Favre, who was second on the list. Brees needed less than one half to surpass Manning's mark of 71,940 career yards.
