Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player: Drew Brees
Every Tuesday Sports Grind Entertainment presents you with the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player of the Week. This week the recipient of this prestigious honor goes to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for breaking the single season passing record held by NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino. The NFL record stood for nearly three decades as Brees threw for 307 yards and four touchdowns, the last a 9-yard strike to Darren Sproles that set the record with 2:51 to go. It was Brees final pass of the game and it gave him 5,087 yards passing with one game still to play. Marino finished with 5,084 yards for the Miami Dolphins in 1984. Brees four touchdown passes gave him 276 for his career, moving him ahead of Joe Montana and Vinny Testaverde for ninth all-time. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 5,000 yards twice as he had 5,069 in 2008.
Congratulations Drew Brees you are this weeks Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player.
