Drew Brees is the NFL’s all-time leader in completions and passing yards in the regular season, and is on target to pass Peyton Manning as the all-time leader in touchdown passes in 2019.

But with fewer opportunities, Brees only ranks 10th all-time in passing touchdowns in the postseason with 29.

Every quarterback in the top 10 is either in the Pro Football Hall of Fame or not yet eligible.

With a deep and successful postseason run this year, Brees has a chance to pass Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw, Kurt Warner and Dan Marino on the list and possibly move into the top five.

Tom Brady’s 71 career TD passes in the postseason is far and away the NFL record, 26 more than Joe Montana.
