It only took one start for Jameis Winston to accomplish something as the Saints starting quarterback that the team’s former starter – Drew Brees couldn’t during his entire legendary career as a Saint.
During the team’s Week 1 blowout win over the Green Bay win, Jameis Winston threw a touchdown pass that traveled 50 yards. It was one of Winston’s five touchdown passes but this particular one was historic.
According to Paul Hembekides — retired Saints QB Drew Brees attempted 9,421 passes for the franchise and never did that once.
“This touchdown pass from Jameis Winston traveled 50 yards in the air.
Drew Brees attempted 9,421 passes for the Saints and never had one of those.”
