Once Drew Brees surpasses 200 yard in tonight's game versus Washington, setting a new NFL career passing yards record, what happens? It all depends on the timing, reports The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

As long as it's not within the two-minute warning, or the Saints aren't otherwise in hurry-up offense mode, the game action will pause to acknowledge the moment. David Baker, president of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, will collect the game ball for display in Canton, Ohio.

A video recorded of Peyton Manning, the current record holder, will play during the next break in the action.

Brees' uniform from tonight will also be sent to Canton for display in the Hall of Fame.
