Thumbs up Reflecting on Drew Brees' big day

With some help from ESPN Stats & Information, let’s put Drew Brees’ performance on Sunday into perspective.

•Brees threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns in a 35-28 victory against the Buccaneers. That gives Brees 16 career games with at least 300 passing yards and four touchdowns. That times him with Dan Marino for the most in NFL history.

•Brees now has 18 career games in which he has thrown four touchdown passes, which makes him fourth in NFL history. Brett Favre holds the record with 23.

•Brees also moved into a tie with Favre for third place in history with his 62nd 300-yard passing game. Peyton Manning holds the record (67).

•Brees had been struggling with play-action passes early in the season. He completed just 42.1 percent of his play-action passes in the first five games and averaged 8.3 yards per attempt with two touchdowns and two interceptions. That all changed Sunday. Brees completed all seven of his play-action attempts in the first half against the Bucs. He finished the game completing 90.9 percent of his play-action passes and averaging 15 yards per attempt. Two of Brees’ touchdowns also came off play-action.
