New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees has been statistically magical in his last twelve Monday Night Football appearances.
The New Orleans Saints are going to be matched up against the Indianapolis Colts on primetime on Monday Night Football.
Statistically, Drew Brees has been magnificent on Monday Night Football and the Saints need him to continue that streak to get a win over the 6-7 Indianapolis Colts. A win would be the capstone on what could be the Saints’ chance to get back into the top spot in the NFC this week.
Last week against the NFC top San Francisco 49ers, Drew Brees threw 29 completions for 349 yards and five touchdowns.
That ended up statistically being one of the best games of his career and the best game this season for the forty-year-old future Hall of Fame quarterback from Purdue. His QBR was 91.4 and his rating was 138.4. He also added a one-yard touchdown run.
In the last 12 Monday Night Football appearances for the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback, he has thrown form 4,194 yards and his touchdown to interception ratio is 39 to 6. He has a rating of 124.8 to go along with it. He is averaging 349.5 yards per game and 3.25 touchdowns per game.
The ESPN Power Index gives the Saints a 71.9% chance to win this Monday night game.
The Colts have only won one of their last five games (against the Jaguars). The New Orleans Saints have their eyes set on the top NFC spot while the Colts are already looking toward next year as they are all but statistically eliminated from playoff contention.
Hopefully, that means that the Saints will have an easy breeze by and that Drew Brees will throw for another 350 yards, 3 touchdown game like he did last week and like he has done every Monday Night Football game for the last 12 times.
We welcome ESPN into the Superdome once again this year.
