It wasn't only Drew Brees who saw a touchdown streak come to an end in Week 12.

While we know that Drew Brees had his own personal touchdown streak come to an end in Week 12’s loss to the Houston Texans, the New Orleans Saints as a team apparently had their own streak end as well.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Saints had a team touchdown streak end on Sunday. Worst of all, they were just 12 games away from breaking the all-time record.
Most Consecutive Games With TD
1957-69 Browns 166
2006-15 Saints 155 (ended today)
2002-12 Chargers 151
Pretty incredible to think about, and as Joseph Zucker of Bleacher Report points out, this streak by the Saints began back in 2006. Time for the Saints to start up a new streak, but you can bet that the incredible stretch by the Cleveland Browns won’t be easy for any team to break.
