Drew Brees passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns as the New Orleans Saints routed the Miami Dolphins 38-17 on Monday night.
Brees threw two touchdowns to tight end Jimmy Graham and the other two to Benjamin Watson and Darren Sproles, who also rushed for a touchdown.
“He plays out of this world,” Graham said. “This team is so dynamic, we have so many weapons and Drew knows exactly where to go with the ball.”
On the Saints opening drive, Brees became only the seventh quarterback to pass for more than 47,000 yards. He ended the drive with 47,030, surpassing Fran Tarkenton’s 47,003 for sixth most yards passing all-time.
Brees later passed John Elway on the all-time NFL completions list with 4,146.
From the Saints website:
Brees’ 10th career 400-yard passing game – which ranks second in NFL history behind Dan Marino with 13 – and the 10th-highest single-game passing yardage total in franchise history.
Brees is now tied with Joe Montana for the third longest win streak (nine) by a starting quarterback on Monday Night Football with only Steve Young (10) and Ken Stabler (11) ahead of him.
Brees has thrown for at least 300 yards in nine consecutive games, tying the NFL record that he first set between the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
Brees’ multiple-touchdown pass game was the 102nd of his career, surpassing Tarkenton by moving into sole possession of fifth place all-time. Brees trails only Brett Favre (159), Peyton Manning (139), Dan Marino (127) and Tom Brady (110).
Brees completed at least 20 passes for the 55th consecutive game, extending his own NFL record, and topped the 200-yard passing mark for the 35th straight game. It was the tenth straight game he had 25 or more completions, tying his own NFL record.
Brees passed for 300 or more yards for the 71st time in his career. Only Peyton Manning (76) has more 300-yard games in NFL history.
The 4-0 Saints travel to Chicago to play the Bears on Sunday.
