In one of the most impressive sports streak has came to an end. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has had his 54 consecutive games with a touchdown pass ended tonight in the Georgia Dome versus the Atlanta Falcons.

It has been awesome streak to say the least, however it is likely that this streak will be short lived as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is currently at 43 straight  games, so this streak record could be in jeopardy next season.

This streak started back on October 19th, 2010 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he hasn’t looked back since, well that is til tonight. Regardless of what team you’re a fan of, this has been an awesome string of games that’s lasted almost three full seasons.

Brees eclipsed, legendary quarterback Johnny Unitas’ mark of 47 earlier this season, I still think Johnny U should get a lot of credit since back when he played the league was far from a passing league to  say the least. In addition, they played fewer games so it took him four seasons to complete the mark that lasted for over 50 years is extremely telling, but that’s just my take, what do you all think?
