Brees Does Brees
An absolute near-perfect outing by Drew Brees on the night, as he finished 30/39 for 413 yards, 4TD, and 0 interceptions. Brees also eclipsed his 10th career 400 yard passing game, which is only 3 shy of Dan Marino’s record. He also has the most 400 yard games of any quarterback since 2006.
The offense didn’t get much support on the ground, as they only rushed for 68 yards on the night. Brees spread the ball around quite a bit on the night. He targeted Jimmy Graham & Marques Colston the most, with 8 targets. What’s crazy is Colston didn’t have a catch until the 2nd half.
Brees also found Ben Watson for his first touchdown as a Saint.
