On October 7, 2012 New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees set a NFL record on a 40-yard scoring throw to former wide receiver Devery Henderson with his 48th consecutive game with a touchdown pass.

This broke a mark previously held by Johnny Unitas since 1960.

Brees was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
