Week Seven Brees Index

  • Print

Any doubt that the First To Score Rule doesn't exist was decisively erased in Week 7.  New Orleans was down by 10 heading into the fourth quarter against Miami and outscored the Dolphins 22-0.  Drew Brees appeared to be having an off day in the first half with only 104 yards and two interceptions but rallied to finish with 298 and a touchdown to Marques Colston (5 catches, 72 yards.)


If this keeps up (I know, it never does) the 6-0 Saints will finish with 635 points, which would shatter the record held by the 2007 New England Patriots by 46 points.  In '07 the Patriots had scored 230 points after six weeks and that was before Bill Belichick really started running up the score.  The Saints have scored 238 points so far.  The numbers on Brees and Colston:


Brees 132-197, 67% completion rate, 1698 yards, 14 TDs, 5 INTs

Colston 30 receptions, 466 yards, 5 TDs
