The New Orleans Saints finally end their four-game losing streak with a 31-24 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Drew Brees was simply amazing in a historic night, in which he broke Johnny Unitas' record for consecutive games with a passing TD. Brees added to the record-breaker, throwing for 370 yards and four touchdown passes. Despite some defensive struggles, the Saints managed to hold off the Chargers on what would have been a game-winning drive.

As for San Diego, this was not one of the defense's best showings of the season as Brees torched the secondary with some stellar passing. Marques Colston was unstoppable, catching three TD passes for 131 yards. There were some questionable calls late in the game that negated huge gains for San Diego down the stretch, but the Saints were the better team tonight, especially their future hall of fame quarterback Drew Brees.
