"Brees and the first-place Saints (7-4) will look to win their first home game in over a month when they face Smith and the 49ers (5-6) on Dec. 3.
The Saints are 2-3 since their bye, but Brees has set an NFL record for passing yards in a five-game span with 1,954. He had 349 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-13 victory Nov. 26 at Atlanta.
"I'm sure they could make up some kind of record for every situation," Brees said. "If we're winning games, that's great. ... I kind of go by the saying, 'You're only as good as your next performance.' "
Brees has passed for a league-leading 3,463 yards, 499 better than Indianapolis' Peyton Manning. "
