Drew Brees has a knack for making history when the only NFL game to watch is being played inside Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

There was the Sunday night in 2012 when Brees' 40-yard pass to Devery Henderson gave him touchdown passes in 48 straight games, eclipsing a mark set by Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas half a century earlier. That streak finally ended at 54 games — a mark which still stands.

Six years later, on a Monday night in the dome, Brees broke Peyton Manning's previous career record of 71,940 yards passing in even more spectacular fashion: a 62-yard touchdown pass to then-rookie Tre'Quan Smith.

Brees entered this weekend three touchdowns shy of breaking Manning's career touchdowns passing record of 539 as the Saints prepared to host one of Manning's former teams, the Indianapolis Colts, on Monday night.

New England's Tom Brady, with two touchdowns Sunday at Cincinnati, increased his career total to 538, one ahead of Brees.



Check out some important information about the game, including expert picks and details on how you can watch it live, listen live and follow live updates.

All eyes on the Saints secondary in this one for me.

Eli, PJ, Marcus Williams as well as the rookie... ALL must play better.

Re: Saints vs Colts MNF Game Day Thread

Had a wonderful day away from football yesterday . Even saw all our distant cousins . Spent a day at the zoo with the grandkids and I enjoyed every minute of it. A breather from the TV . Left the phone in the car . But what bugged me all day was the 9ers and clowns game I kept thinking about. ESP?
