Drew Brees, Along With Peyton Manning, Has The Most Five-Or-More Passing Touchdown Games In The Modern Era

We’re going up the ladder.  Yesterday, it was quarterbacks with the most 4-or-more passing touchdown games since the merger in 1970. Peyton Manning holds that record by eight over Drew Brees.

Today, it’s quarterbacks with the most 5-or-more passing touchdown games since the first modern football season when the AFL and NFL united into the NFL (becoming the AFC and NFC Conferences). And it’s Manning again – this time tied with Brees at the top. They have eight apiece.

What about six touchdowns? How about seven touchdowns? One more post in this series, tomorrow.
