The NFL's single-season accuracy title is back in the hands of its rightful owner. Drew Brees, the most accurate passer in NFL history, took back the NFL record for completion percentage on Sunday against Tampa Bay, one year after Minnesota's Sam Bradford broke the mark. Brees completed 22 of 30 throws for 238 yards to finish at 72 percent completion percentage for the season, knocking off Bradford's mark of 71.6, set with the Vikings last year. The 38-year-old legend has set the standard for single-season accuracy twice before. Brees became the first NFL quarterback to complete 70 percent of his passes in a season by hooking up on 70.6 percent during the Super Bowl run in 2009, then lifted that mark to 71.2 in 2011.
