CHICAGO – Observed in the locker room after the New Orleans Saints' 26-18 victory over the Chicago Bears:

Brees unchallenged: Saints quarterback Drew Brees admitted he was "a bit shocked" to find out New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass ended at 52 on Sunday. Brady was expected to challenge Brees' NFL record 54-game streak when the Saints and Patriots meet next Sunday in New England.

"It's a crazy game," Brees said. "I think in my mind I just assumed that he was gonna break it, that there was no doubt. … But it just means that they're gonna be pretty salty next week, and we're gonna get their best game, there's no doubt about that."

"Smart" plan: The buzz word after Sunday's game was "smart." That was the Saints' plan to finally win at Chicago -- and they stuck to it by winning the turnover battle (1-0), the time of possession battle and (read the rest here: Locker Room Buzz: New Orleans Saints - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN )

He wasn't the only one either, I just knew that Brady was going to set a new record. I'm glad for Drew he gets to hold onto it..... For now

I didn't realize he was that close to the record. Glad Drew still has his name attached to it. But I agree it won't stand. Someone will break it with today's pass happy NFL.

That comment goes to show that individual records aren't just important to the one guy holding or chasing it but also to his teammates.

The only player on the horizon who could break Brees' touchdown record is Peyton Manning who sits at 28 consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass. But he's still 26 games away from even tying the mark.

I was hoping with the extra day they would have been ready for the field conditions & would NOT have slipped so much.
