NEW ORLEANS — It sounds like a broken record, but Drew Brees moved past another iconic NFL quarterback.

Ten months ago, it was Dan Marino. On Sunday night, Johnny Unitas became second fiddle.

The suspense ended with 2:58 remaining in the first quarter of a prime time game between the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when Brees collaborated with receiver Devery Henderson on a 40-yard touchdown pass.

Henderson slipped past single coverage from Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer and loped the last 12 yards into the Poydras Street end zone, helping the Saints register their first win of the season with a 31-24 come-from-behind victory against the AFC West-leading Chargers.

Henderson’s score marked the 48th consecutive game in which Brees has thrown at least one touchdown pass, breaking a record Unitas established in 1960.

“It’s unbelievable; you couldn’t have written a better script,’’ Brees said. “I really tried to take in the moment after the game and walked around the locker room sharing the moment with my teammates.

“The amazing thing about this record is it spans the better part of four seasons — ‘09, ‘10, ‘11 and now ‘12 — and that’s why I thought it was important to have those people in the building tonight.’’
