NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Drew Brees is the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdown passes after tossing four more in the Saints’ 34-7 thrashing of the Indianapolis Colts in New Orleans. The scoring strike that broke Peyton Manning's record of 539 career touchdown passes came in the third quarter, when Brees hit tight end Josh Hill for a 5-yard score. Brees also broke a single-game record for completion percentage by connecting on 29 of his 30 attempts for 307 yards in a little more than three quarters.
