In front of a Monday Night Football audience and a friendly home crowd, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino’s 27-year NFL season passing yardage record. Back in 1984, Miami Dolphins legend Marino threw for 5,084 yards in 16 games. Brees broke that mark in the 15th game of this season with a 307-yard performance in the Saints’ 45-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Brees set the new mark (5,087 yards) on a nine-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles late in the fourth quarter. It was Brees’ fourth touchdown of the night.

While Brees is most famous for his passing prowess and scrambling ability, the Austin, Texas native and former Purdue star has quietly been living out his Christian faith as a devoted family man and a committed community leader. Last year, the good folks at Fellowship of Christian Athletes had a chance to sit down with Brees for an interview. Check out what he had to say in the video below:
