Sports world reacts after Drew Brees sets the NFL's all-time passing record

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke Peyton Manning's all-time passing record of 71,940 yards during the second quarter of Monday night's game against the Washington Redskins.

The ball caught by Smith was given to Pro Football Hall of Fame President David Baker for display in Canton, Ohio. As the Superdome crowd gave Brees a standing ovation, he removed his helmet and hugged his wife Brittany and their four children.

New Orleans defeated the Washington Redskins 43-19. "I've gotta tell ya, it's been the greatest 1,000 days of my life", Manning says in the video.

Arsenal , meanwhile, won their ninth consecutive game in all competitions on Sunday, thrashing Fulham 5-1 at Craven Cottage. The Cityzens are level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool but their goal differential is better than the other two.

Click on the video above to watch the moment Brees became the NFL's all-time leading passer with a 62-yard TD strike.

Brees exited the game at the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter. He has 499 career touchdown passes. 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. However, Saints coach Sean Peyton took a chance on the 6'0ft quarterback and the tandem eventually won a Super Bowl, ironically against Peyton Manning's Indianapolis Colts.

"Obviously, and I know Drew feels the same way, you never play for individual records of any sorts", Manning said in June (via the New Orleans Times-Picayune). You've got to love the guy taking the news of his record being topped in stride.
