While New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been off to a rough start this season and won’t be breaking too many records, there is one he has a chance at obtaining.

During the Saints first offensive series during their game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Brees threw his 47th consecutive touchdown pass which ties the record that legendary quarterback Johnny Unitas set previously on December 4, 1960.

Brees has a chance to break that record next Sunday when the Saints face the San Diego Chargers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome by throwing a 48th consecutive touchdown pass.

Of course at this point with the Saints currently at a devastating 0-4 record that they haven’t experienced since 2007, fans are happy with this bit of silver lining to brighten the doom and gloom.
