It seems every week we hear about how New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is set to break one record or another—we’re just to that point in his illustrious career.
On Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks, Brees has a shot at breaking another record as ESPN’s Mike Triplett illustrates:
Another record: It seems like Brees breaks some new record every few weeks, and Monday might be no exception. Brees is two touchdown passes shy of his sixth straight 30-touchdown season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that would be the longest streak in NFL history. Brees is currently tied with Brett Favre with five straight 30-TD seasons.
Of course, breaking this record will be a massive task in Seattle against one of the NFL’s best secondaries. Then again, like we said yesterday, the Seahawks will be without two of their best cornerbacks thanks to suspensions.
But really, this is another day at the office for Brees. He’s poised to break another record, which should come as no surprise. Here’s to hoping Brees does so under the national microscope of Monday Night Football.
