This should in no way come as a surprise, but New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is on pace for career numbers this season in some categories thanks to his stellar play.

It is a big deal when a player of Brees’ caliber, especially in season No. 13, is potentially on his way to career-best numbers. ESPN’s Mike Triplett has the shocking details:

Brees has thrown only one of those interceptions during the past five games. And according to ESPN Stats & Information, Brees’ 122 touchdown passes since the start of the 2011 season are tied for the most in NFL history over any three-year stretch. He’s tied with himself (from 2010-12) and Dan Marino (1984-86) – though Brees will obviously set a new mark in the weeks to come.

Brees is on pace for 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this year – which would be his lowest interception total since joining the Saints in 2006.

The normally efficient Brees has taken his play to new heights this season. With coach Sean Payton in tow, the Saints are once again riding high, but the play of Brees currently shines above all despite other factors such as a better-than-expected defense.

Time will tell if Brees can keep up this level of play and set new bests in various regards. More importantly, the Saints’ playoff and Super Bowl hopes may depend on it.
