Pierre Thomas is about to rewrite New Orleans Saints record books with a strong showing against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football. 

Katherine Terrell of NOLA.com has all the details:

 But Thomas, who ranks No. 5 all-time in Saints rushing touchdowns, is about to enter the top five in another category.

Thomas has quickly shot up the franchise leaders’ list this season, entering at No. 8 with 2,974 rushing yards. If he gains 22 yards against the Atlanta Falcons, he’ll pass Rueben Mayes for the No. 4 spot.

Impressive!

Thomas is the leader of the resurgent Saints rushing game. He’s been a staple of the attack for years and easily a fan favorite, so his rewriting of the record books is both a good thing and not a surprise.

This year Thomas has rushed for over 400 yards and a touchdown. Not impressive on its own — but Thomas is also a hefty contributor through the air with his 51 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns.

On Thursday, watch for Thomas to further place himself in the franchise’s illustrious history.
