That's what it's become. Look at these final stats and records...


  • Drew Brees finishes with a league-record 5,476 passing yards, extending the record he set in Week 16 after breaking Dan Marino's 27-year-old record; Brees also finished with a league-high 46 TD passes, beating Aaron Rodgers (who was inactive Sunday) by one

  • That wasn't all for Brees -- his 468 completions are also the most ever in one season, and his 71.2% completion rate surpasses the previous record (70.6%) he set two years ago

  • Rodgers did finish with a 122.5 passer rating which is 1.4 points better than Peyton Manning's previous single-season mark from 2004

  • Prior to the 2011 season, the 5,000-yard passing barrier had been exceeded twice (Marino - 1984, Brees - 2008); this season Brees, Tom Brady (5,235 yards) and Matthew Stafford (5,038) all exceeded it with Stafford going off for 520 yards Sunday to reach the plateau

  • Playing in place of resting Rodgers, Matt Flynn became the unlikely answer to some Packers trivia questions, throwing for team records with 480 yards and six TDs in a 45-41 win vs. the Lions; expect Flynn, who will likely hit the free agent market, to be a sought-after commodity in a few months


Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew won his first NFL rushing title (1,606 yards) Sunday.
