Drew Brees Breaks Dan Marino’s Long Held Passing Record (Video)

New Orleans Saints fans celebrated on Monday night as Saints quarterback Drew Brees went on to break a 27-year single-season passing record held by Dolphin legend, Dan Marino.

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Atlanta Falcons 45-16 on Monday night as Brees broke Dan Marino’s 27-year old passing record from 1984 of 5,084 yards with the final pass of the game setting a new record of 5,087 yards.

The video below shows Drew Brees reaction after he broke Dan Marino’s 27-year old passing record setting the new single-season passing mark.

Brees achieved the feat with one game to go but his new record could still be beaten again this season by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is currently on 4,897 yards.

Dan Marino tweeted after the record was broken to congratulate Brees on the feat

Brees replied by tweeting: ‘Thanks to @DanMarino for his class and support during this run. It is an honor to attempt to follow the example he set for us all’
