New Orleans Saints Beat San Diego Chargers 31-24 [PHOTOS]
The New Orleans Saints grabed their first win of the season Sunday as they beat the San Diego Chargers 31-24.
The saints were behind by 10 points in the third quarter but Drew Brees brought them back.
Brees threw four touchdown passes Sunday night, one of them being the 40 yard pass to Devery Henderson in the first quarter that broke the record held by Johnny Unitas for “most consecutive games with a touchdown”.
Brees completed a pass to Marques Colston and then hit Colston again with a 5-yard pass that gave the Saints a 28-24 lead.
It looked a little grim when Brees threw what was almost an interception for a San Diego touchdown. It was called back on a penalty for roughing the passer that brought on a drive for 87 yards and a 16 yard pass to Marques Colston to win the game.
Brees said, “I can’t say enough about the guys in our locker room, obviously we’ve been through a lot this year. But we hung together, and hopefully this is the first of many wins.
