It’s the best video of the day and after the way the Denver Broncos have been playing, we need a good laugh.

In the video released by the Saints, Manning is seen making a salad when he’s informed that Brees broke his mark of 71,940 passing yards. The Saints defeated the Redskins, 43-19, and Brees finished the game one touchdown pass short of 500 for his career (only Manning, Brett Favre and Tom Brady have thrown for more).

Content that he still holds the all-time record of 539 passing touchdowns, Manning is informed that Brees is on pace to break that, too. Brees threw his 498th touchdown pass on the 62-yard throw to Tre’Quan Smith on the play on which the quarterback moved past Manning.

Peyton Manning appears to be thrilled. Really.
