New Orleans Saints
quarterback Drew Brees added his name to an exclusive group of passers on Sunday. He threw three touchdowns in the Saints' Week 3 victory over the Houston Texans
. In doing so, he became just the fourth player in NFL history to ever throw a touchdown pass in 30 straight games.
As impressive as it may seem, however, he remains far behind legendary Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas who holds what many refer to as pro football's "unbreakable" record of 47 consecutive games with a touchdown throw.
