New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is now the most prolific passer in NFL history.

With his 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith during the Saints' Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins, Brees passed Peyton Manning's 71,940 career passing yards to move into first place on the all-time list.

Brees started the 2018 season as one of only three quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 70,000 passing yards. Brett Favre and Manning are the others.

Brees entered Monday night trailing Manning by 200 yards, with 98 yards separating Brees from Favre in second place.
