Drew Brees reflects on first Saints touchdown
Drew Brees has 411 career passing touchdowns with the New Orleans Saints more than any other NFL QB during that stretch dating back to 2006.
That year the Saints opened up the season against the Cleveland Browns who were on the wrong end of his first TD pass as a member of the Black and Gold.
A 12 yard strike to number 12 Marques Colston and you could say the rest was history. The Saints have only played the Browns twice since then with the two teams set to pick up that once every four year tradition on Sunday which is quite the throwback Thursday for the future hall of famer. “Yep, yep, I remember the play, Marques Colston, it was a little kind of stop route outside, he made a nice catch and made the corner miss and then dove into the end zone. Yeah, that goes way back. That was at a time where man, there was so much uncertainty. And winning that first game of the season in ’06, 19-14, I remember the score, man, hard fought game back and forth and to get that win did so much for our confidence and really kind of paved the way for a lot of what we were able to accomplish that season, too.”
The Saints will look to grab their first win against Cleveland since that 2006 season when they kick things off from the Mercedes Benz Superdome on WXXV on Fox at noon on Sunday.
