Drew Brees Breaks Dan Marino's Single Season Passing Record 12/26/2011
Brees entered the Monday night matchup in the Superdome with 4,780 yards. Only 305 were needed to surpass Marino’s 5,084 set in 1984. By halftime, Drew had already thrown for 230 yards. Just 75 to go and the record was his to own. After a slow third quarter, he entered the fourth with only 30 yards to go. With under 5 minutes left in the game it looked like the record could live for another week. But on the drive that capped off the deal, Brees hit Marques Colston for a 12-yard gain and then Devery Henderson for 11 yards (7 yards short of the record). On 2nd and goal, Drew found Darren Sproles for a touchdown, completing the quest for the record with 5,087 yards. The Saints demolished Atlanta 45-16 and clinched the NFC South division title... While Devery did not get the honor of being the receiver of the pass that broke Marino's 27 year-old passing record, in the following 2012 season Devery would be the receiver of Brees's 48th Consecutive Game Touchdown pass that broke Unitas's 52-year old record.
