New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) warms up before a game against the Washington Redskins at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 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".

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. "Congratulations and I'm proud of you".

Once everything was said and done, the Saints went for the two-point conversion and New Orleans went on to roll to a 43-19 victory over the Redskins on Monday night.
