BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady congratulated New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees after he set a new NFL record Monday night.
Brees broke Peyton Manning's touchdown record, making him the leader with 541 passing touchdowns. He also moved three in front of Brady, who currently has 538 passing touchdowns.
"Couldn't be more deserving," Brady wrote on Twitter. "Passing Peyton in anything is an incredible achievement and your records will be tough to beat! But it's worth trying."
The record is just for passing touchdowns made during the regular season.
