Drew Brees sets National Football League passing yards record on long touchdown

Grant SmithOct 11, 2018

The Redskins have allowed the fewest passing yards per game in the league this year at 187.3.

Brees tossed 363 yards on his historic night taking him to 72,103 yards, as the Saints won 43-19 over the Redskins. After throwing for 217 yards against the Giants last week, Brees sits at 71,740 yards in his career, third all-time behind Brett Favre and Manning.

Brees previously set an National Football League record for most career completions in Week 3, surpassing Favre's mark of 6,300 as he connected with wide receiver Michael Thomas on a 17-yard pass against the Falcons.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame took the football, which will go to Canton. Brees posed for pictures on the sideline with his wife, Brittany, and their four children.

However, Peterson said after the defeat that he suffered a dislocated shoulder near the end of the first half. The Redskins coach said Tuesday that numerous mistakes happened when his team tried to press - causing players to freelance and get outside of the designed scheme. He did not touch the ball in the second half.

Dustin Hopkins kicked field goals of 37 and 53 yards for Washington, which also had a 4-yard touchdown run from Alex Smith to pull within 26-13 at half-time. Brees completed passes to nine different receivers, including one he completed one to himself on a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage.
