NFL stars react to Saints QB Drew Brees breaking Peyton Manning’s passing TD record
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will undoubtedly go down as one of the best quarterbacks to ever sling a football on an NFL field. While he doesn’t received as much hype as Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, he is officially the record holder for most passing touchdowns in league history.
In a big-time blowout against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football, Brees found the end zone on a play-action pass to break the record.
Following the record-breaking pass, NFL stars began taking to social media to share their messages and reactions to Brees’ new record. Take a look at some of the messages that were posted:
On a historic night for @drewbrees seems only fitting that he has also tied the record for completion % in a game at 96.6% (tying Philip Rivers)… Coach Payton – how about 1 more screen pass to make this an even more historic night?? #WhatSayYouWhoDat?

Congrats drew!! Couldn’t be more deserving. Passing Peyton in anything is an incredible achievement and your records will be tough to beat! But it’s worth trying 😉

Drew Brees making history, Michael Thomas making history, the best ending to this story would be the Saints in Miami in February 🏈
