In 2012, he broke Johnny Unitas's long-standing record of consecutive games with a touchdown pass.  In Week 12, Brees led the Saints to an 11–0 record, defeating the New England Patriots 38–17 on Monday Night Football. , Brees's second season with the Saints started rough with an 0–4 start, with three losses by the Saints in that stretch by at least 17 points.
