Drew Brees has made most passes in NFL history – but Tom Brady is not far behind.
The Patriots general watched as the Saints general broke Peyton Manning’s 539 penalty shoot-out in Monday night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Brady took to Twitter to congratulate Brees on the achievement and also appeared to remind him that the fight was not over as he finished the post with a blindfold.
Congratulations withdrew !! It couldn’t be worth more. Peyton’s pass on anything is an incredible achievement and your records will be hard to beat! But it’s worth a try
