Saints set records in loss, good and bad
The Saints made history good and bad in the 44-38 loss to Carolina Sunday. Drew Brees passed for over 5000 yards for a third consecutive season, making him the first NFL quarterback to accomplish that feat. He also became the first quarterback to throw for 40 or more touchdowns in consecutive seasons. The Saints defense set a record too, but in the wrong way. After giving up 530 yards of offense to the Panthers, the Saints finished the season allowing 7042 yards. That number the most in NFL history.
