Records are meant to be broken, and that's especially the case in this particular era of NFL history. That's because offense is through the roof and the accumulation of sheer stats has exploded. Here's a look at some records that could be in peril entering the 2014 campaign.

Career passing touchdowns
The record: 508 (Brett Favre)
Bound to break it: Peyton Manning (491)

Manning should do this by mid-season. He's never had fewer than 26 touchdown passes in a season, so unless he gets hurt, this will be locked in.

Single-season sacks
The record: 22.5 (Michael Strahan)
Bound to break it: J.J. Watt, Von Miller or Robert Quinn

It's just a matter of time with this one. Watt had 20.5 sacks two years ago, Robert Mathis had 19.5 last year and Jared Allen had 22 in 2011. Quinn, Miller, Aldon Smith, and DeMarcus Ware have also had 18.5 or more sacks in the last half-decade.

Career game-winning drives
The record: 51 (Dan Marino and Peyton Manning)
Bound to break it: Manning

He only needs one, so this is another no-brainer as Manning starts to hijack the record books before the end of his career.

Career playoff touchdown passes
The record: 45 (Joe Montana)
Bound to break it: Tom Brady (43)

Brady's literally always in the playoffs, but he has only two touchdown passes in his last three postseason games. This should have been broken a couple years ago, but Montana's luck is about to run out here. Manning is also at 37 and could have a shot.
