Stat Line Of The Night — 10/7/12 — Drew Brees (Record-Breaking Video)
Drew Brees entered last night’s game against the San Diego Chargers needing just one touchdown pass to break Johnny Unitas’ record for most consecutive games with a passing touchdown.
He recorded four.
That’s right. With his streak at 47 games heading into the Saints’ week five contest, Brees wasted little time wrapping up the record, as he connected with Devery Henderson on a 40-yard touchdown in the first quarter. And that was’t all he had in store for the Chargers defense, as he hooked up with Marques Colston for three more touchdowns on the evening, finishing with 29 completions on 45 attempts for 270 yards, four touchdowns, one interception and a 110.4 quarterback rating. Those numbers would help the Saints escape with the 31-24 victory—their first of the season. And it would also earn Brees a well-deserved “Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, October 7, 2012.
