The NFL set a single-day record for touchdowns when the New Orleans Saints scored three times in the first half of Sunday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
Drew Brees found tight end Jimmy Graham for a 5-yard score right before halftime for his third TD pass, making it 88 touchdowns on a wild day across the league. The previous record was 87 in Week 17 of the 2012 season on Dec. 30, according to STATS LLC.
A slew of high-scoring afternoon games set the stage for Brees’ record breaker.
Peyton Manning threw for four touchdowns in Denver’s 51-28 victory over Tennessee, and Cincinnati and Indianapolis combined for 10 touchdowns in the Bengals’ 42-28 victory. Philadelphia had four TDs in the fourth quarter of a 34-20 victory against Detroit.
