Brees Wants Passing Mark, But Wants Saints To Win More

For the second time in four years, Drew Brees is taking aim at Dan Marino's single-season record for passing yards.

Back in 1984, Marino set the mark, passing for 5,084 yards, while a member of the Miami Dolphins.

Brees came ever-so-close to breaking that record in 2008, falling a mere 15 yards shy of the coveted number.

Through ten games this season, Brees is again challenging Marino's magic number. He's actually on-pace to eclipse the mark, with his 3,326 passing yards, and still six games remaining.
