Drew Brees has now completed more passes than any player in NFL history.

Brees broke Brett Favre's record with his 6,301st career completion in the second quarter of Sunday's game between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons.

"I hope there's a lot more coming, but I just think about all of the people that had a hand in that," Brees said. "A lot of hands have caught those passes, and a lot of guys have blocked to make those happen. They all are a part of this, absolutely."

Brees is also on track to set the record for career passing yards within the next few weeks.

He is now 417 yards away from Peyton Manning's mark of 71,940 career passing yards, which he is on pace to reach on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
