Follow @Dan Vasta Drew Brees is climbing up the record books these days as he is a TD away against the Chargers from breaking Johnny Unitas’ record for consecutive games with at least one TD pass (48 would be record). Brees has spun it 191 times this season while completing 110 of them to 11 different receivers for 1,350 yards and 10 TD (5 INT).

Philip Rivers has never been shy on the gridiron and he certainly will be mouthing off against a Saints defense that never shuts up with the trash talking, which to a certain degree is not a bad thing. Still, Antonio Gates and the Chargers...

Saints Nation: 5 Things to Look For in Chargers @ Saints

How sad it is that "Gameday!" just doesn't bring the same level of excitement anymore? 0-4 will do that to you. But at least we have the Drew Brees record to root for... that should take about half a quarter. I'm picturing that emotional high followed by, potentially, a long period of reflection in front of the TV while the game continues along the lines of "...

Week Five Rankings

With the Detroit Lions on bye this week A.J Green is the number one receiver for week five. Green has always had the talent, arguably more than Julio Jones but Andy Dalton averageness has held him back from being labelled as arguably a top-two talent at the receiver position with Fitzgerald and Megatron.
