Manning went ahead and congratulated Brees on breaking his passing touchdowns record, too - as he's well on pace to accomplish that feat before he retires.
Manning probably had the best reaction to Brees breaking his record, which he set in 2015 while playing for the Denver Broncos. The San Diego Chargers took the 6-foot Brees at the beginning of the second round of the 2001 draft, but allowed him to leave in free agency after a major throwing shoulder injury at the end of the 2005 season.
Brees passed Favre's total on a 6-yard pass to Alvin Kamara during the second quarter. Brees needs 42 touchdown passes to pass Manning in that category.

The IPCC report makes it clear that the time for talking is over - this is literally a matter of life and death. Drawing from more than 6,000 recent scientific studies, the report laid out four pathways to that goal.
UN Report on Global Warming Carries Life-or-Death Warning
Keeping the 1.5C target would keep the global sea level rise 0.1 metre lower by 2100 than a 2C target, the report states. Emissions will need to fall 45 per cent from 2010 levels - or 58 per cent from current levels - by 2030, the IPCC said.
Trump calls Kavanaugh sexual assault claims a hoax
Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh speaks during his ceremonial public swearing-in as U.S. He added: "I think it's an insult to the American public".
It was one of three passing TDs on the night for Brees, moving him up to 499 for his career, one shy of joining Manning (539), Favre (508) and Tom Brady (500) as only the fourth man in the elite 500 club.
Brees entered Monday 43 passing touchdowns short of Manning's National Football League record of 539 for a career, meaning that he is on pace to top that mark in 2019. How about that? Hey, I love you guys so much. He's just been the ultimate pro, taking care of himself, being in great shape.
The one-time Super Bowl champion added the record to his long list of achievements, including the most completions and 300-yard games.
