The 2012 NFL season will be remembered as a record-breaking year.
With NFL rules favoring the offensive side of the ball, offensive schemes have opened up. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for a record-setting 5,476 yards in 2011. The crazy part of that record falling was that both New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford topped 5,000 yards passing as well.
There are records that will surely fall in the 2012 NFL season, and there are other records that will be challenged. Here is a list of NFL records that will be—or have a chance to be—broken this season.
