Record-setting pass comes on a 40-yard touchdown to Devery Henderson in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's game against the Chargers.

With a 40-yard completion to WR Devery Henderson, Drew Brees has now set a new NFL record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass (48).

He broke the previous record of 47, held by Johnny Unitas (and Brees), that had stood since Unitas originally set it, 11 games into the 1960 season.
