Saints News, 9/12/14: Brees Needs 62 Yards To Pass John Elway On NFL All-Time Passing Yards List

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: "At some point during the first quarter Sunday in Cleveland, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will almost certainly pass John Elway for fourth place on the NFL’s all-time passing list. Brees has 51,414 career passing yards. He needs 62 yards to pass Elway. He’ll need another 10,000 to crack the top 3 of Brett Favre (71,838), Peyton Manning (65,233) and Dan Marino (61,361). Brees is already fourth in NFL history in career touchdown passes with 364 -- also trailing Favre (508), Manning (494) and Marino (420)."
