7 Takeaways From Week 5 In The NFL

Sam Spiegelman looks at what we learned after an action-filled Week 5 in the NFL.

Tom Brady

Historical days for Brady, Brees and Manning

Drew Brees tossed a pair of touchdowns in the Saints’ win over Tampa Bay, surpassing 40,000 yards passing in his Saints career. He did so in his 132nd game with the club, breaking Dan Marino‘s mark as the fastest to reach that feat with one club.

Brady surpassed the 50,000-yard passing mark in his career, becoming just the sixth NFL quarterback to do so. And Peyton Manning threw for his 500th career touchdown as Denver got past Arizona. Manning set the mark in his 244th career regular season game, 49 fewer games than it took the previous record-holder, Brett Favre. It came against two of his mentors: Bruce Arians, his first quarterback coach in 1998 with Indy, and Cardinals assistant head coach Tom Moore, who was his offensive coordinator during his 13 seasons with the Colts.

It’s just a handful of some of the all-time greats adding to their respective legacies.
