The Saints (10-3) converted two third downs on their next drive before Brees connected again with Colston on a scoring pass, this time for 28 yards.

The touchdown gave New Orleans a 22-10 lead with 7:01 left, and Colston finished with 105 yards on seven catches.

Brees, who was 36 for 47 for 337 yards, joined Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas as the only quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in 40 straight games. He also extended his NFL-record streak of games with 20 or more completions to 33.

He has 39,413 yards passing in 150 career starts. That ranks just behind the 39,498 yards passing Dan Marino achieved in his first 150 starts.

The Titans (7-6) twice had the ball in the final minutes with a chance to win, but fell short.

Their loss allowed the Houston Texans, which won at Cincinnati on Sunday, to clinch the AFC South and kept them from gaining any ground in a crowded race for the second AFC wild-card spot.

Doesn't Unitas hold the record with 47 straight games with a TD?

Yes Yes he dose.

Brees, who was 36 for 47 for 337 yards, joined Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas as the only quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in 40 straight games. He also extended his NFL-record streak of games with 20 or more completions to 33.
