Alex Smith has thrown for 1,972 yards in his first full season as the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback. Drew Brees has almost that many in his last five games for the New Orleans Saints.
Brees and the first-place Saints (7-4) look to win their first home game in over a month when they face Smith and the 49ers (5-6) on Sunday.
The Saints are 2-3 since their bye, but Brees has set an NFL record for passing yards in a five-game span with 1,954. He had 349 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-13 win at Atlanta last Sunday.
