Brees Ties Unitas' Mark
Drew Brees tied Johnny Unitas' NFL record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass with his score to Marques Colston in the first quarter of the Saints' loss to the Packers. He can set the mark against his former team, the Chargers, on Sunday night.
Consecutive games with pass TD,
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Drew Brees has thrown a touchdown pass in his 47th consecutive regular-season game, tying the NFL mark set by Johnny Unitas.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback found Marques Colston for a 20-yard touchdown with 3:33 left in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, allowing the Saints to tie the score.
Packers fans, already sensitive about refereeing calls after Monday night's replacement official debacle in Seattle, booed the regular officials after they thought Colston should have been flagged for offensive pass interference on the play.
