The 2018 season gave us a number of record-breaking performances, and there's even more to come in 2019.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees reached the biggest milestone of the season when he surpassed Peyton Manning's mark of 71,940 yards to became the NFL's all-time leading passer.

Brees also set records for career completions (6,586) and single-season completion percentage (74.4).

But it was young star Patrick Mahomes who ran away with MVP honors after the Chiefs quarterback became only the second NFL player in history to pass for more than 50 touchdowns and 5,000 yards in a season.

Other players who had an impressive statistical season include Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who set a rookie record for touchdown passes (27), and Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who moved past Morten Andersen (2,544 career points) to become the NFL's all-time scoring leader.

But there's more to come for the NFL's historic 100th season in 2019.
