Drew Brees Says 1984 Is No More; Breaks Marino’s Single Season Passing Record

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke Dan Marino’s 27-year-old record for most passing yards in a season after connecting with Darren Sproles on a 9-yard scoring strike.

Brees finished the 45-16 rout of Atlanta on Monday night with 307 yards passing, which places him at 5,087 yards; three more than Marino’s record-setting pace of 5,084 yards, set back in 1984.

The Super Bowl XLIV MVP will have a chance to add to his total on Sunday when the Saints host Carolina.

New Orleans still has plenty to play for in Week 17. They still have a chance to earn a bye and the NFC’s number two seed.

Incredibly, Brees could finish the season without the record. Tom Brady stands 187 yards short of Marino’s ’84 total and 190 behind Brees.

However, for now, this a moment to celebrate one of the NFL’s most undervalued stars.

Congrats Drew.
