Drew Brees "locked in" on Washington as furor over record swirls

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. After throwing for 217 yards against the Giants last week, Brees sits at 71,740 yards in his career, third all-time behind Brett Favre and Manning.

Brees then removed his helmet, saluted fans and exchanged hugs on the sideline with his wife, Brittany, their four kids and Saints coach Sean Payton. The 18-year play caller accomplished that feat in the second quarter when he put the Saints up 26-6, but he was just getting started. If he does, however, expect the fanfare to continue throughout the night in New Orleans. Brees and Colston hooked up 705 times for 7907 yards and 72 touchdowns. He had 250 yards and two touchdowns by halftime and finished 26 of 29 for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

Understanding the magnitude of the moment, Brees reflected a bit in his Wednesday availability, looked back at specific moments but mostly tried to avoid ruminating on the record before he breaks it.
