The eighth-year pro, and former seventh-round draft choice out of Hofstra, entered the game needing 12 yards to break Eric Martin's two-decade-old record of 7,854 yards receiving, which was set over nine seasons (1985-93).

Brees guided New Orleans to two late Garrett Hartley field goals — the second as time expired — and the Saints upended the 49ers 23-20 on Sunday.

Ingram rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown on only 14 carries last Sunday night in a 49-17 victory over Dallas, smashing his previous career high of 91 yards set in his rookie season of 2011.

Incumbent Garrett Hartley has had a case of the wide-lefts this season, going 16-of-22 on field goals.

As much as Sean Payton would like to see his offense's record-setting performance against Dallas carry forward, experience tells him that assuming so would be unwise.
