Brees came into the game needing 201 passing yards to pass Brett Favre (71,838) and Manning (71,940) ahead of him. Brees threw his 498th touchdown pass on the 62-yard throw to Tre'Quan Smith on the play on which the quarterback moved past Manning.

Manning, who was surpassed in the record books, joined forces with the Denver Broncos to acknowledge the feat with a amusing video.

"I love you guys so much", Brees said while hugging his three boys as Brittany held their daughter nearby. And thanks to you, that's over now.

Move over, Peyton Manning, the National Football League has a new career leader in passing yards.

"You've ruined that for me". Brees was fourth on the list heading into Monday night at 496.

"Drew, for 1,000 days I've held the record for all-time passing yards in the NFL".

Brees is in his 18th season out of Purdue. The game came to a halt in order to honor Brees' accomplishment, and plenty of people on social media took time to pay tribute to the veteran quarterback for his impressive feat.

Of the passing-yardage record, Manning said at the time, "He deserves it". While making his mark in SD, Brees suffered a potentially career-ending shoulder injury in 2005 that caused many teams to pass on him in free agency. 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.
