Drew Brees had four touchdown passes (three of 40+ yards), went over 5,000 for the season, and even ran in for a score as the New Orleans Saints dismantled the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 42-17 in Week 17. The win secured a playoff berth for the Saints, and it put a good taste in Who Dat Nation’s mouth as they shook off some road struggles towards the end of 2013. It all seems so long ago, as the two struggling clubs face off this Sunday.
