New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees added to his extensive list of accolades Wednesday night, winning the ESPY award for Best Record-Breaking Performance. He won for becoming the NFL's all-time leading passer, a milestone he reached in front of the entire nation during a nationally-televised broadcast of Monday Night Football.

Brees set the new mark in grand fashion, courtesy of a 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie target Tre'Quan Smith.

Of course, Brees isn't done yet. He's currently prepping for his 19th NFL season and 14th in New Orleans as the Saints' prolific trigger-man.

In winning the award, Brees beat out Oregon women's basketball star Sabrina Ionescu becoming the all-time triple-double leader, NBA All-Star Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors setting the mark for three-pointers in a single game with 14, and Matthew Boling becoming the all-time high-school record-holder in the 100 meters.
