Drew Brees has been putting up impressive numbers throughout his career. Now the Saints quarterback finds himself in some more elite company. 

Brees threw for 331 yards and one touchdown Sunday in a 26-17 win at Green Bay. That touchdown gave him 500 for his career and made him the fourth in NFL history with 500 career TD passes, including the postseason. 

The Saints quarterback now trails Peyton Manning (579), Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre (552) and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who went into Sunday night's game with Atlanta with 532.
