Of course, Drew Brees has to be a top performer in what is most likely his last NFL regular-season game. The future Hall of Famer was rumored to say that he is intending on retiring from the NFL following this playoff run with New Orleans.
It will be one of the most bittersweet moments for the black and gold in the history of the franchise. No. 9 has done so much for the team and the city. He continued that run into the regular-season finale against the Carolina Panthers.
He threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions. He also only took two sacks. Those are good numbers for a 40-year old quarterback who just came off of 11 fractured ribs and a punctured lung.
If this is actually Drew Brees’ last season in the NFL, he will be able to look back on his last regular-season game and be proud of his performance.
