With Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham each catching two touchdowns, and Lance Moore catching another, Drew Brees set another NFL record this afternoon by having a record 8th game with five or more touchdown passes. Peyton Manning is in second place, with seven such games. Drew's 343rd touchdown pass also passed Tom Brady and Fran Tarkenton (342) for fourth place all-time, though Brady's one touchdown pass today keeps him tied with Brees (at 343) for the fourth-most touchdown passes in NFL history.
Pierre Thomas was the rushing leader, followed by Khiry Robinson, and then Kenny Stills... who actually ran the ball once for four yards.
The New Orleans defense also had a great day, with David Hawthorne, Cameron Jordan, and Junior Galette each forcing fumbles -- two of those recovered by Cameron Jordan and Galette -- and Keenan Lewis nabbing an interception from Bills quarterback Thad Lewis. With the offense not giving up any turnovers, the Saints now have a +8 turnover differential... which could be enough to lead the league, depending on the rest of this weekend's games.
Hopefully the 6-1 Saints keep the fire in their bellies as they face of against the Jets at MetLife stadium next weekend.
