Talk about a turnaround.
Two quarters removed from starting a game with four straight incompletions for the first time in his career, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees etched his name in the NFL’s record books again — this time becoming the first quarterback to throw 30 touchdowns in 10 seasons.
Brees surpassed Peyton Manning and Brett Favre to claim the record, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Brees’ 30th touchdown of the 2018 season came on a 30-yarder to Keith Kirkwood. The pass not only earned Brees another accolade to his seemingly endless resume, but also pulled the Saints within a field goal of the Dallas Cowboys in Thursday’s game in Arlington, Texas.
