Saints Quarterback Drew Brees is the NFL's All-time career passing leader and he did it in grand style, with a 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie Tre'Quan Smith. It was one of three touchdown passes thrown by the 39-year-old QB, as New Orleans routed Washington 43-19 to improve to 4-1.
The record breaking TD pass to Smith set off a wild celebration inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as Brees went around the field to hug as many people as he could.
"It just played out even greater than I could have ever imagined," said Brees. "I tried to rehearse the scenario in my mind this week, just so I can really focus in on the game, but to then have the moment with Sean (Payton), Mr. Baker from the Hall of Fame, my boys, my wife Brittany and my daughter, Rylen, that was just incredible."
Brees now has 72,103 passing yards and 499 touchdowns passes. He'll have to wait awhile before he can lead the Saints to another score. The Black and Gold's next game is October 21st at Baltimore.
