Three and Out

1. MAKING HISTORY: Drew Brees can make NFL history once again with a touchdown pass, which would be his 48th game in a row with one — topping the mark he shares with the incomparable Johnny Unitas.

2. LOW FIVE?: The Saints haven’t been 0-5 since 1996, which helped pave the way for Jim Mora’s abrupt exit as coach, and the current team doesn’t want to go there after a narrow miss at Green Bay.

3. RUDE GUESTS: With four victories — each of them by at least 14 points — the Chargers are one of three teams that have never lost in the Superdome. Buffalo (3-0) and Baltimore (1-0) are the other unbeatens.

PREDICTION

After opening with four losses, including last week’s heartbreaker against the Packers on the road, the Saints put it together and finally break through on a festive evening. But it’ll be anything but easy against a solid Chargers’ team.

SAINTS 27, CHARGERS 23
