New Orleans Saints Set Record For Most TD Passes Allowed

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints made history on Sunday, though it's not something they'd like to be known for.

The Saints set the NFL record for most touchdown passes allowed in a season with 43, passing the previous record of 40, set by the 1963 Denver Broncos.

The team is also on pace to shatter the NFL record for opponents' passer rating, 110.9, which was set in 2008 by the 0-16 Detroit Lions. New Orleans came into Sunday's game with an opponents' passer rating of 116.5.

The Saints currently sit at 6-9, fourth in the NFC South, and are scheduled to take on the Falcons at the Georgia Dome on Jan. 3.
