Drew Brees passes Peyton Manning's record as Saints beat Redskins

"I made that boy check out after the first half", the 25-year-old wideout tweeted, later posting a clip of himself getting the better of Norman.

The New Orleans crowd erupted with cheers as the Saints players mobbed him on the field.

All Drew Brees did was go 26 of 29 for 363 yards and 3 scores. Brees and the Saints have that effect on team's statistics.

Brees completed 12 of his first 14 passes for 166 yards, leaving him 35 yards short of surpassing Manning's record late in the second quarter. "It's just truly been a dream come true", Brees said afterward. I blame Roger Goodell.

Following the game, Redskins coach Jay Gruden addressed Norman's benching, saying, "It'll be back to normal".

Woooooo boy! Tell us how you really feel, Mike.

It also didn't help the team's cause that they allowed a massive play from Drew Brees to Cameron Meredith on a second and 17.

Brees is 39 and as insane as it sounds, is probably having the best season of his career. He did, however, make his eighth career reception on his own deflected pass, and pushed across the line of scrimmage to add an extra yard to his career total. It defies belief if we didn't actually watch him do it every week.

"I'm going to be honest, playing on Monday night is no different than playing on Sunday night for me", Redskins defensive lineman Jonathan Allen told reporters afterward. The Saints sacked Smith 3 times and Marcus Davenport almost broke the poor man in half. Instead, they helped Brees pile up first-half yards with third-down penalties that extended two touchdown drives. They are also sixth against the run (90.7 yards per game).

"Just so grateful for the opportunity to play this game and to have played it so long and to have the teammates that I have, and the New Orleans Saints organization, and this great city and this great fan base".

Alvin Kamara was practically invisible and the Saints COASTED to 43 points.

Mark Ingram had run for touchdowns on one and two yards and Brees flipped a 1-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill in addition to his record-setting touchdown pass.

Tre'Quan Smith is probably not just a fill in for Ted Ginn Jr., he's likely to take that receiver spot opposite Michael Thomas and never give it back.

Paired with an offensive mastermind in head coach Sean Payton, Brees produced an NFL-record five 5,000-yard passing seasons.

The only downside to Monday was I didn't get to see it in person.
