It was another great weekend for New Orleans Saints fans, as Drew Brees and the boys racked up their second win of the 2018 - 19  season, an thrilling 43 - 37 overtime win over the Falcons in Atlanta.

Not only is the victory a big one in the Saints quest to take home another NFC South title, but future Hall of Famer Brees set a new national Football League record for career completions. Here's the story from USA Today:

Drew Brees now stands alone in one category of NFL history.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback set the record Sunday for most pass completions in a career, eclipsing Brett Favre's previous mark of 6,300.

Brees broke the record with a connection with wide receiver Michael Thomas in the second quarter against the Atlanta Falcons.

Sunday might only be one of the first steps in what is shaping up to be a historic season for Brees. The 39-year-old signal-caller entered the day just 813 yards away from breaking Peyton Manning's record for career passing yardage (71,940). He also was tied with Tom Brady for most passing touchdowns (493) but will be hard-pressed to overtake Manning (539) for the top mark.
