After four unsuccessful attempts, another Drew Brees milestone has been reached.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has made more NFL history. The Week 7 road victory over the Baltimore Ravens helped Brees become the third quarterback to successfully beat all 32 teams, joining Peyton Manning and Brett Favre.

Previously, Brees was 0-4 against Baltimore, with the Saints losing in 2006, 2010, and 2014. The other loss came when Brees was with the Chargers, a 24-10 loss in 2003. Those demons were finally exorcised, as New Orleans rallied from a 17-7 deficit to put together and hold onto a victory, but it didn’t come without some last-second excitement. On the final Ravens offensive drive, Baltimore was able to get a touchdown with just 24 seconds left, but failed to convert the extra point — Justin Tucker was jinxed by the FOX broadcast team.

Earlier in the game, Brees became the league’s fourth quarterback to eclipse the 500 career passing touchdown mark when he hooked up with Benjamin Watson in the second quarter.

Don’t look now, but the Saints are 5-1.
