Drew Brees will be looking to break Peyton Manning’s record for most passing yards in a career on Monday Night against the Washington Redskins.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

This Monday Night Football game between the New Orleans Saints (3-1) and Washington Redskins (2-1) will be an historic one as Drew Brees needs just 201 passing yards to surpass both Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most career passing yards in NFL history.

The NFL plans to stop the game when the record is broken to present the ball to Hall of Fame president David Baker, followed by a video tribute from Peyton Manning.

History setting days like this do not come often in the NFL and it should be exciting to see former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos great Manning give the same kind of tribute Favre gave him just three short years ago.
