The New Orleans Saints crushed the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football, but the big star of the night was Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
The 40-year-old threw a five-yard pass to tight end Josh Hill for his 540th career touchdown pass, breaking the record held by Peyton Manning. It capped off a huge night for Brees who threw four touchdown passes and also set a record for the highest single-game completion rate for a quarterback after completing 29 of 30 passing attempts.

- His only incomplete pass was a short toss attempt to running back Latavius Murray.
- If you’ve watched the NFL for the past two decades, you’ve gotten to see some of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in Brees, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
- Last week he threw five touchdowns in a loss to the 49ers.
