During Monday Night Football, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees set the NFL all-time record for career passing yards following a 62 yard touchdown pass to receiver Tre’Quan Smith.

Brees finished the game with a career total of 72,103 passing yards, surpassing Peyton Manning’s 71,940 for first place all-time.

Following the record breaking touchdown pass, current and former Patriots took to their social media accounts to congratulate the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Former Patriot Donte’ Stallworth also took time to share  a person story from his first meeting with Brees.
