Drew Brees on Verge of Becoming First QB in NFL History to Throw 40 Touchdowns in Back-to-Back SeasonsPosted by on 12/27/2012 – 4:34 pm

QB Drew Brees leads the league with 39 touchdown passes this season. With at least one TD pass against Carolina on Sunday, Brees would become the first player in NFL history with at least 40 touchdown passes in back-to-back seasons. He led the league with 46 TD passes in 2011.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino is the only NFL player with 40+ passing TDs in multiple seasons (1984, 1986).
If he finishes the season as the NFL TD pass leader, Brees would tie Brett Favre and Pro Football Hall of Famers Len Dawson Johnny Unitas and Steve Young (four) for the most seasons leading the league in touchdown passes in NFL annals. Brees has led the league in TD passes three times (2008-09, 2011).
