FILE - In this Dec. 26, 2011, file photo, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees celebrates a touchdown by running back Pierre Thomas in the first quarter of an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons in New Orleans. The 2011 Saints offense has established itself as the best in club history. If Drew Brees and fellow starters wind up playing most of the season finale against the Carolina Panthers scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 1, New Orleans could set an NFL record for offensive yards in a season as well.
