If you follow the NFL at all, then surely you’ve heard by now that Saints quarterback Drew Brees set a major record over the weekend. When he threw the first of his four TD passes in the Saints’ 31-24 victory over the Chargers, that made it 48 straight games with a TD pass, breaking the previous record of 47 straight games set by some guy named Johnny Unitas a whopping 52 years ago. So, if you didn’t already realize that Drew Brees is a very special player, hopefully you do now.

So today, in honor of Brees’s historic achievement on Sunday, we give you this list of 12 other NFL records held by active players. And first up is an obscure one set this year by a rookie on the St. Louis Rams.
