Drew Brees on track to set NFL single-season record for completion percentage

There's a good chance New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees won't lead the NFL in passing yards for a fourth consecutive season. Instead, as the Saints have leaned on a more balanced offense, Brees has enjoyed an efficient year that could see him break the record for single-season completion percentage.

Through 13 games in 2017, Brees has completed 71.72 percent of his passes, which would surpass Sam Bradford's record of 71.56 percent from 2016 with the Minnesota Vikings.

Brees has been close to Bradford's record for much of the year, and after completing 73.9 percent the past two weeks, Brees has pushed ahead of Bradford's mark.

But, wait, I understand that Brees is now constantly throwing off target. How can this be? Could certain members of this forum actually be wrong?

Re: Drew Brees on track to set NFL single-season record for completion percentage

It's been Drew's record since 2009. Bradford just broke it last year. Drew's had 3 of the top 10 most accurate seasons. No other quarter back has had more than 1 in the top 10. And unless something really unexpected happens, Drew will have 3 of the top 4 performances and 4 of the top 10. The big shame of it all is that this season will push Matt Ryan's 2016 season out of the top 10.

As long as the Saints are winning, i don't think Drew cares.
