The New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers are set to play this Sunday night in the Superdome in prime time on NBC.

Saints Quarterback Drew Brees will be on the national stage that night and will have a chance to break a NFL record that has stood for over 52 years.  On top of that, the NFL is allowing head coach Sean Payton and other suspended Saints staff to come to the game.

The NFL has granted permission for Saints coach Sean Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis and assistant head coach Joe Vitt to attend New Orleans’ home game Sunday night against San Diego, in which Drew Brees can break a tie with Johnny Unitas for the NFL record of consecutive regular-season games with a touchdown pass.

Brees, tied with Unitas at 47 last Sunday during the Green Bay Packers game.  Unitas set the record from 1956 to 1960.

Drew Brees could break two big NFL records in two years.  Last year, Drew broke Dan Marino’s single season passing yard record.

The Saints and Chargers game will be televised at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
