With Taysom Hill at the helm of the offense, the Saints are capable. They’ve beaten the Broncos and Falcons twice. A startling loss to the Eagles reset some of the success he’s had as rookie Jalen Hurts abused New Orleans with his feet.
Now, either this week or in the coming weeks, the Saints will get future first-ballot Hall of Famer Drew Brees back. Brees has been the league’s top passer in terms of completion percentage for three straight seasons and is on track to make it a fourth.
His pinpoint accuracy gives the Saints more options. His knowledge of the offense and when and how to get both Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara the ball is also important. Brees is the team’s captain, and they’ll go as far as he takes them.
Brees has 18 touchdowns in nine games this season with just three interceptions as well. While it is clear that his arm strength isn’t there like it used to be, Brees will still be able to efficiently push the ball down the field.
He’s the key to everything they do offensively, and it’ll be on him to help this team win their second Super Bowl of the Drew Brees era.
