New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees continued to garner more accolades Sunday as the veteran passer’s performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved him up on the career touchdown-passing list.

Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes to longtime teammate Marques Colston during the 24-17 win over the Buccaneers, giving him 421 touchdown passes for his career. The feat moved him up to fourth on the all-time list, ahead of Miami Dolphins icon Dan Marino (420). The beloved New Orleans star now sits behind only Peyton Manning (539), Brett Favre (508) and Tom Brady (425) on the all-time list.

Brees — wearing a white and black colorway of the Nike Lunar Code Pro 3/4 cleats — was 31-of-41 in the air Sunday, throwing for 312 yards. Colston, also wearing Nike cleats, caught Brees’ only two touchdown passes in the victory.

The quarterback is no stranger to rearranging the record books this season. During the Saints’ matchup with the New York Giants back in November, Brees threw seven touchdown passes, becoming just the eighth player in the history of the NFL to do so.

Brees and the Saints (5-8) will face the Detroit Lions (4-9) next, on Dec. 21.
