Broken Record?


Christmas Day is all about about Jesus. Tonight (12.21) is all about Breesus. The 5-8 Saints were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday (12.20) night, but WhoDats will have plenty of reason to watch the Saints’ host the woeful Detroit Lions tonight. Number 9 is on the verge of breaking a handful of additional records.

 

Another 173 passing will raise Brees’ career tally to a total of 60,000. Only three other quarterbacks (Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Dan Marino) have hit that mark. The same three record-holders also hold the distinction of being the only NFL QB’s with over 8,000 passing attempts. Currently Brees is sitting at 7,955 attempts.

 

Brees currently holds the record with a streak of nine consecutive 4,000-yard seasons. Another 206 yards will add another year to that stat. Manning does have 14 total 4,000+ yard seasons, but thy are not consecutive.

 

Drew is clearly home in the dome. He holds the NFL record of 52 straight home games with a TD pass. Tonight, that figure can only get better.
