Chasing Marino: A Weekly Drew Brees Passing Record Tracker - Week 13

Since Drew Brees is currently on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing record of 5,084 yards, I thought we should keep track of his progress the rest of the way. So here is how Marino's '84 season and Drew's '11 season stack up through the first 12 games.

Through 12 Games

Player Attempt Complete Yards Comp. % Yards/Att TD TD % INT INT % Long Sack/Lost Rating
Drew Brees 496 349 4,031 70.4 8.13 30 6.0 11 2.2 79t 21 / 136 105.5
Dan Marino 395 256 3,678 65.0 9.35 32 8.4 12 3.2 80t 6 / 46 108.6
+/- +101 +93

+353

+5.4 -1.22 -2 -2.4 +1 +1.0 -1 -15 / -90 -3.1

There's only one quarter of the 2011 NFL season remaining and Drew Brees is still ahead of schedule to break Dan Marino's single season passing yardage record. In fact, he's gained even more ground on the record these past two weeks and is now 353 yards ahead of where Marino was through twelve games of his 1984 record setting season, though still not as efficient.

With four games left, Brees needs 1,054 more yards to break the record, which means he only needs to average a little more than 264 yards per game. The probability that he will break the record becomes more likely with each passing week. #hegotthis

Games remaining: Tennessee, Minnesota, Atlanta and Carolina
