Drew Bress Surpasses 70,000 Passing Yards
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees continues to put up numbers that rank right up there with the all-time greats.
Brees threw for 239 yards in the Saints' 23-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, becoming only the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for 70,000 yards in their respective careers.
The 38-year old Brees now has 70,200 career passing yards, ranking only behind Payton Manning (71,940) and Brett Favre (71,838) for the most in league history.
Barring injury, Brees should become the all-time NFL passing yards leader in the first half of the 2018 NFL season.
In addition, Brees also currently has 4,089 passing yards on the season, giving him 12 seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards, two behind Manning.
For the season, Brees has completed 364-of-506 passes for 4,089 yards, to go along with 22 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
Over his 17-year career, Brees has thrown for 70.200 yards and 487 touchdowns.
