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).
However, Drew Brees does not line up defense for the 32nd defense in yards allowed (463.2) and 29th rated in points allowed (32.5).
New Orleans has been simply atrocious allowing opposing quarterbacks’ to throw for 276.5 yards per game, which is actually 24th in the NFL (hey, were making some strides here).
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 Charge...
