December 26, 2011; New Orleans, LA, USA; New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) celebrates after breaking Dan Marino
Last season New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke Dan Marino’s passing yardage record in a home game against the Atlanta Falcons. He will have the chance to do the same with another at home this season as well.
Legendary quarterback Johnny Unitas holds the record for consecutive games with a passing touchdown at 47. Brees going into the season today currently has 43.
If he can continue with this streak, then Brees will tie the record held by Unitas when they play the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on September 30th.
This would set the stage for Brees to break the record held by Unitas in front of a roaring crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on October 7th against the San Diego Chargers with a 48th touchdown pass.
While Brees has said that the numbers the Saints offense as well as himself would be hard to duplicate again this season, this should be one that the future Hall of Famer can obtain with no problem and beyond.
