Brees breaks NFL passing record

As a quarterback at Purdue, Drew Brees became the Boilermakers’ and the Big Ten Conference career leader in passing attempts (1,678), passing completions (1,026), passing yards (11,792), passing touchdowns (90) and total offense (12,692). On Monday night Brees added another record to his impressive resume: He broke Dan Marino’s 27-year-old single-season passing yard mark.

Brees entered the fourth quarter against the Atlanta Falcons needing only 30 yards to break the 1984 record of 5,084 yards, and he did it with style throwing over the middle for his fourth TD pass of the night. Brees finished the game with 307 yards passing. The playoff-bound Saints have one game remaining in their regular season, too.
