Drew Brees ties Dan Marino in pass TDs (Video)


Drew Brees gets the New Orleans Saints on the board early with a three-yard touchdown pass, tying Dan Marino for fourth all-time with 420 career touchdown passes.

Drew Brees continues to climb up the NFL record books with his stellar career as an NFL passer. With his easy, three-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Marques Colston, Brees is now tied with Miami Dolphins great Dan Marino for fourth all-time in career passing touchdowns with 420.

Brees, who is already the greatest passer to have ever played for the Saints, continues to play at a high level for a team likely on the outside looking in at a NFC playoff spot in 2015. The Saints take an early 7-0 lead on division rival Tampa Bay on the road in a must-win game for New Orleans.

With Brees getting the Saints on the board with 8:33 to go in the first quarter of their game with the Buccaneers, this could shape out as a great day for Brees under center for the Saints. For New Orleans to win on the road against Tampa Bay, the will need to score early and often, as their defense doesn’t stop anybody. New Orleans will have to top Tampa Bay in a shootout in Week 14 on the road.

By finding his most reliable target in Colston in the back of the end zone, Brees marches his way towards the top of the record books. At 36 years old, Brees has time to ascend further up the all-time passing standings in the NFL. Will Brees pass Marino later in this game versus the Bucs?
