New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wide receiver Marques Colston extended some of their records that they currently have in the 31-27 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Brees added another consecutive touchdown pass to add to the Johnny Unitas record that he broke when he threw a touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham in the second quarter and extended the streak to 52.

Along with that record he also added another notch in the NFL record for number of games with 20 or more completions which made 45 for him today.  He completed 21 passes for 298-yards and three touchdowns.

Colston tied former Saints  running back Deuce McAllister for career touchdowns at 55 when he caught a 7-yard pass that he extended over the goal line in the third quarter.
