1. Drew Brees

The Tennessee Titans’ pass defense is no joke.  In fact, they’re ranked third in the NFL, allowing only 197.9 yards through the air.  As a whole, they rank fifth in total defense, and as bad as they are in the record category, the Saints must not be fooled.

If things go as planned for the New Orleans Saints (good defense, solid effort from the offensive line, steady ground attack), then it will be up to quarterback Drew Brees to win the game, and it’s a good thing to have the game in his hands.

Even at the age of 36 and missing the first game of his Saints career due to injury, this STILL elite quarterback is fifth in the league in passing yards and fourth in touchdowns.

After a historical performance just last week, all the momentum is in the favor of Drew Brees and his high-powered offense.  If he gets some help from the rest of his team, he should have no problem taking care of business against the Titans.
