Drew Brees heads in to this weeks match-up against the San Diego Chargers tied with the great Johnny Unitas for consecutive games throwing a touchdown. He only needs 1 in this game to break the record that has stood for nearly 50 years as Unitas streak ended on December 11th, 1960. As we stand Brees has thrown a touchdown pass in 47 straight games dating back to Oct 18th, 2009. Now as for the New Orleans Saints the team has gotten off to a terrible start and have a tough match-up to get their first win of the Season.
San Diego will travel to New Orleans where the Saints hope to get win number 1 on the season. Now as for Brees he will have extra motivation as the NFL has approved that Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis and Joe Vitt all be granted permission to attend the game. All 3 are currently suspended due to the off season bounty gate news.
Now the Saints kicked off the season against the Washington Redskins in a game that no one saw the Skins winning but in the end they held off the Saints. The followed that loss up to a division rival the Carolina Panthers losing another close game before taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. A team that was coming in to the game 0-2 but found a way to win in overtime. The Saints made improvements and nearly knocked off Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers losing 28-27. No one saw this coming as the Super Bowl will be held in New Orleans this year and many around the league thought the Saints had a great chance of playing in that game. As it currently sits they will have to go on a long winning streak just to make it as a wild card team.
