Quarterback Drew Brees set NFL records in rout of Colts

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees celebrates setting the NFL record for touchdown passes with 540, surpassing Peyton Manning.

Most New Orleans Saints fans got to watch Drew Brees' record-setting performance on "Monday Night Football" as it delivered a combined rating of 58,0 in New Orleans. ESPN earned a 16.0 and the simulcast on WDSU-6 garnered a 42.0.
