NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - DECEMBER 16: Quarterback Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints drops back to pass over the defense of the Indianapolis Colts at Mercedes Benz Superdome on December 16, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Drew Brees Logs 541 Career Touchdown Passes To Beat Peyton Manning’s Record; Tom Brady & More React

Drew Brees is now officially the all-time NFL touchdown passes leader.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback surpassed Peyton Mannings record for career TD passes in Monday night’s 34-7 home rout of the Indianapolis Colts. Brees — who will be 41 next month — beat Manning by throwing his 540th NFL pass midway through the third quarter, a five-yard toss to Josh Hill that put New Orleans up 26-0.

Brees then threw another pass later in the second half of Monday’s game — his fourth of the night — to reach the 541-pass mark.

Brees can now add this achievement to his long list of accolades, which includes one Super Bowl victory, a Super Bowl MVP title, 12 Pro Bowls, NFL Offensive Player of the Year, Walter Payton Man of the Year, seven-time NFL passing yards leader and five-time league completion percentage leader — among dozens of others. How much more impressive can he get?

IN MEMORIAM: SPORTS FIGURES WHO DIED IN 2019

The Saints QB — a former second-round draft pick out of Purdue — received congratulations from several NFL stars, including Russell WilsonAdrian Peterson, Deion Sanders, JJ Watt and Tom Brady, who has compiled 538 career touchdown passes:

ESPN Radio’s Trey Wingo, Mike Golic and Mike Golic Jr. also all reacted to Brees’ big accomplishment on Golic & Wingo:  

Brees has undoubtedly turned his season around completely. His 2019 campaign got off to a shaky start after he sustained a thumb injury that sidelined him for five games.

Now, he certainly appears on track to cementing his status as the greatest NFL quarterback of all time — or at least of his generation.
