As you can see, Brees did it in style with a long touchdown connection and, on cue, the sports world opened its arms to congratulate him on what is an awe-inspiring accomplishment.

The 39-year-old Brees passed Peyton Manning who held the record at 71,940 yards and Brett Favre who was in second place with 71,838 yards. Brees will go down as one of the best quarterbacks EVER to play the game.

Click on the video above to watch the moment Brees became the NFL's all-time leading passer with a 62-yard TD strike. Shown on the video slicing tomatoes, Manning deadpanned that his time as the career yards passing leader have been "the greatest thousand days of my life".

And, the previous record holder Peyton Manning sent him congratulations. "Thanks to you, that's over now".

A second-round pick by the Chargers in 2001 after setting records at Purdue, Brees spent five seasons in San Diego as his career got off to a somewhat slow start.

Monday night was special for Drew Brees.

Brees came into Monday already in possession of several other National Football League career passing records, including most completions (6,344), highest completion percentage (67.1), most passing yards per game (283.6), most consecutive 4,000-yard passing seasons (12), most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (54) and most consecutive games with at least 20 completions (57). How about that? Hey, I love you guys so much.

Brees also was the final Saints player to run onto the field during pre-game introductions as fans belted out elongated howls of "Dreeeeeeew".
