It was one of those records that you didn't know if it would ever be broken. For 27 years, Dan Marino held the record for most passing yards in a single season with 5,084 yards. Last night, Drew Brees was the new owner of the record as he finished the game with 5,087 yards on the season. Brees can improve on his record as the Saints still have one remaining game left this season.
Any time a record is broken, it's a big deal. It's an even bigger deal when the record that is being broken was standing since 1984. The record was deemed unbreakable by many, but Brees has proven many people wrong like he has done on multiple occasions throughout his career.
