Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (26) carries against New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (94) in the first half of an NFL football game in New Orleans, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018. Brees removed his helmet, held out his arm to salute the crowd and hugged his wife, Brittany, and children on the sideline.

"I don't know if that will ever sink in", Brees added.

After Brees connected on the record throw, he was mobbed by teammates and the game was briefly halted to acknowledge the historic moment. 59,392 of Brees' yards have come since joining the Saints in 2006. The Los Angeles Rams (5-0) are the only NFC team with a better record than the Saints.

The record probably won't last for long given the state of the NFL's passing rules, but congrats - for now -Drew.

In 2012, Brees also set the National Football League record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass at 54.

The Saints, at coach Sean Payton's insistence, took a chance on Brees in 2006, and the payoff has been extraordinary.

Brees, who turns 40 in January, sparked the Saints to a 2010 Super Bowl victory, taking Most Valuable Player honors in a 31-17 triumph over Manning's Indianapolis Colts. No other quarterback has more than one such campaign. Brees surpassed Hall-of-Famer Johnny Unitas' streak of 47 straight - which had stood since 1960.

Peterson carried four times for six yards and caught two passes for 36 yards. Monday night is giving us a good one, too.

Earlier in the game, Peterson took a hit to the knee, but returned to play in the next series.
