Drew Brees broke Johnny Unitas? NFL record for most consecutive games with a TD pass in 48 straight games. Did anyone see any of this coming for the former standout Purdue quarterback? And how good can Brees be when his career eventually ends? Also, Russ Lande updates his Top 10 Big Ten NFL draft prospects, and there is movement among the names. Watch last week's list in the video in this post to get ready for tonight. Our panel discuss that and more on tonight's "The Next Level" at 5:30 p.m. ET on BTN & BTN2Go.

Other topics for tonight's show include:

  • Rashard Mendenhall looked solid for the Pittsburgh Steelers in his first game of the season after tearing his ACL last year, and our guys discuss the mental and physical aspects of returning from a huge injury.
  • Kirk Cousins played well in place of an injured Robert Griffin III, but what does the future hold for Cousins in Washington?
  • Montee Ball joins us to talk about his early season struggles, the differences between this year and last year, and Wisconsin?s win over the Illini last weekend.
  • Antwaan Randle El has a special message for Denard Robinson, who broke Randle El?s Big Ten QB rushing yards record last weekend.
