This is what a 80-yard, overtime, walk-off TD for your 400th career TD pass looks like.— NFL (@NFL) October 5, 2015
Take a bow, Drew #DALvsNO http://t.co/ekVfR85IH3
Here's an impressive stat: Two of the five NFL quarterbacks to throw 400 career touchdown passes are former Big Ten players.

One week after Tom Brady (Michigan) joined the illustrious group, which includes Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Dan Marino, Drew Brees (Purdue) made it a quintet in New Orleans' exciting 26-20 overtime win over Dallas on Sunday night.
Brees and the Saints wasted no time in the extra session. On just the second play of overtime, Brees connected with running back C.J. Spiller on an 80-yard touchdown to clinch the win.
Reaching any milestone, especially one as rare as this one, is memorable, but few things can top the walk-off milestone.
Way to go, Drew!
