The offensive line actually played rather well against the Patriots. Drew Brees had enough time in the pocket to find a receiver down the field. The problem is that the Patriots played their coverage so tight Brees barely had any room to throw the ball.

Brees’ most reliable target Jimmy Graham was covered by Aquib Talib who harassed him as soon as the ball was snapped. Brees and Graham could never develop a rapport during the game, which made Brees have to look for other open receivers.
