Drew Brees passes Peyton Manning's record as Saints beat Redskins

Quarterback Drew Brees and running back Mark Ingram II partnered up to take a part the league's top defense. This was the fifth straight game Washington hasn't scored a touchdown in the third quarter, dating back to past year.

A detailed view of a NFL logo on a football pylon as the Washington Redskins play the New Orleans Saints at FedExField on November 15, 2015 in Landover, Maryland. "So to be sitting here 18 years later in striking distance ... it's just kind of mind-boggling". If he does, however, expect the fanfare to continue throughout the night in New Orleans.

Brees owners should not only start him with confidence against Washington, but should also prepare to witness history. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns. Instead, they helped Brees pile up first-half yards with third-down penalties that extended two touchdown drives. And barring the impossible, they'll be in for a special moment when he breaks the record on Monday. 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.

That set up change-of-pace QB Taysom Hill's 1-yard touchdown run that put the Saints (4-1) up 40-13.

The Redskins racked up six penalties that extended some of the Saints' early drives. But Brees has slung the football around with the best of them.
