The record-setting touchdown toss gave the Saints a 26-6 lead with 2:36 remaining in the second quarter of the contest and gave Brees a career total of 71,968 yards, eclipsing Manning's former mark of 71,940 after having supassed what had been the second-best career total of 71,838 yards by Brett Favre on a 75-yard touchdown drive earlier in the quarter. Washington is 5-21 on Mondays this century, with an average margin of defeat of 10.4 points.

"He throws for 5,000 yards just like he's sleeping at night, and it's insane to see that", Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said.

New Orleans backup quarterback Taysom Hill, who had five carries for 23 yards and a touchdown, was among the guys available on your fantasy football waiver wire who outscored Kamara. "I'll be able to reflect on it maybe a little bit more when my career is done". "I didn't know it was going to happen on the first play to Tre'Quan".

Brees broke the record on a 62-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith in the second quarter.

"Overall, our whole team played poorly and that's a reflection of myself", coach Jay Gruden said.

Riyad Mahrez blazes over late penalty as Man City's Anfield hoodoo remains
Nevertheless, the second half started with more objective by both the teams and they got many chances to win the game. Manchester City had three big calls for penalties yesterday and Martin Atkinson got them all right.

Drew Brees then went on to lead the Saints offense on a 15-play, game-clinching drive that bled the final 10:25 off of the clock.

After being benched in favor of rookie Greg Stroman in the second half, Norman re-entered the game, only to become a target for Thomas on Twitter following Drew Brees' historic night.

The Redskins (2-2) scored 13 points in the first half on field goals of 37 and 53 yards by Dustin Hopkins and a 4-yard run by Alex Smith after Washington recovered a Cameron Meredith fumble late in the first half. In it, Norman struggles - like, really struggles - with the seemingly simple task of removing his jersey for the traditional swap with a Saints player. Can he keep up with the New Orleans attack? Adrian Peterson, who spent the first part of last season with the Saints, said he planned to enjoy some beignets on this trip. "He's in charge. I respect the head man in charge".

The worst penalty of the first half came on Montae Nicholson. "We deserved the penalty".
