More notably, Saints quarterback Drew Brees is on the verge of National Football League history as he needs 201 passing yards to surpass Peyton Manning to become the all-time passing leader. "I came back into the game".

The dismantling of the Redskins wasn't just on one side of the ball.

Alex Smith is pressured during Monday's game.

Brees entered the game needing 201 yards to eclipse Peyton Manning's previous mark of 71,940 yards.

Those chants echoing around Old Trafford will unnerve United's owners far more than the continual whining on Twitter, too. They have been vocal in their support of him at matches, and this situation suits the United manager.

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.

Redskins fans took over Bourbon Street on Sunday night and were well represented inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but unlike last season, when Washington built an early lead it would ultimately relinquish in nightmarish fashion, there wasn't much to cheer about from the start on Monday. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns. The 18-year play caller accomplished that feat in the second quarter when he put the Saints up 26-6, but he was just getting started. He was suspended for the first four games but returns to the backfield to join Alvin Kamara after the duo had a historic 2017 season, breaking all sorts of records as both were voted to the Pro Bowl. So far, he's been his usual, efficient self with a 68.8 completion percentage and four touchdowns, compared to just one pick. Brees hit Tre'Quan Smith down the sideline for the record and began to build his edge over Manning as Smith went 62 yards for a touchdown. It was the first time in his career that he's been away from a team at any level, and he made his presence felt when he returned to the field. Like many teams, it's hard to gauge Washington's quality at the moment: they dominated the Cardinals, who have just one win in five, but were also beaten by the 1-4 Colts.

He finished with 53 yards rushing and 20 receiving. They weren't. Washington's vanilla offense couldn't keep up with the pace set by Brees and his elite unit and the Redskins defense couldn't stop it.

The Redskins racked up six penalties that extended some of the Saints' early drives. They could have bounced back from the 38 yards lost on penalties, but allowed Ingram to establish a steady run game - and of course, Brees' record outing. The San Diego Chargers took the 6-foot Brees at the beginning of the second round of the 2001 draft, but allowed him to leave in free agency after a major throwing shoulder injury at the end of the 2005 season.
