Peyton Manning congratulated Drew Brees on breaking his record in the best way

This was great.

Peyton Manning got to hold the NFL all-time passing yard record for 1,000 days, and on Monday night that came to an end. Manning graciously prepared a congratulations video for Drew Brees to commemorate the occasion and it’s magic.

Manning has proven a knack for comedy in the past, still being one of the best athlete hosts of Saturday Night Live of all time — but this was pretty great. Just a dude with his tomatoes, trying to make a wedge salad for his family before having to multitask to congratulate someone on crushing his hopes, dream, and record.

This video is a lesson in duality. Come for Manning’s jokes, stay to see this old photo of Manning and Brees.

Bravo, Peyton, and congrats Drew!
