This means that Brees pick-6s are counted against the defense. If you want to know how, it's math based on definitions. If you wish to complain, the NFL guide is NFL Digest of Rules
And.... Those the record for those stats "by definition" is no where in danger of being broken by the Saints. The only record the Saints stand to set is for yardage, not points. Your arguing apples and oranges.

I cant help it if you stray from target.

Couldn't really give a sod what yards we give up.

Only care about the points. But.............

If we can keep away from that "record", may it happen.
