The New Orleans Saints have had a pretty good day in their season opener against the Oakland Raiders. Quarterback Drew Brees has been on fire and he made history with the longest touchdown pass in his career.
He dropped back into his endzone and connected with wide receiver Brandin Cooks down the sideline. Cooks did the rest of the work as he burnt cornerback Sean Smith and raced 98 yards into the endzone.
