METAIRIE, LA. — The Saints avoided squandering a 300-plus-yard passing performance by Drew Brees. It's something they've struggled to do recently in splitting four games.

New Orleans' recent rough patch was not a typical one. The offense has been moving the ball consistently all season. Brees has now passed for a league-leading 3,463 yards in his first year as a Saint, 499 yards better than Peyton Manning, who's second in the NFL.

No quarterback in NFL history had passed for as many as 1,954 yards in a five-game span, as Brees has just done.

"I'm sure they could make up some kind of record for every situation," said Brees. "If we're winning games, that's great. ... I kind of go by the saying, 'You're only as good as your next performance.' "
