New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees possibly had the worst game of his career last Thursday when he threw for a career high five interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons. The Saints lost to the Falcons 23-13 as they could never recover from Brees’ constant interceptions.
Also in the loss, Brees’ streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass was snapped at 54 games. He would like to put this game behind him and start focusing on the New York Giants. He will have a tough task in beating the Giants, but after his terrible Thursday night performance, he is primed to have a big game.
I would expect Brees to tear up the Giants’ secondary and channel some of the success he had against the Giants last season. When the two teams met up last season in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the Saints destroyed the Giants 49-24. Brees had five total touchdowns, four passing and one rushing, to go along with 363 passing yards.
This time the Saints will be playing on the road at MetLife Stadium and I am sure the defending champs have not forgotten about the beat down the Saints gave them last year. However, history is on Brees and the Saints’ side in this matchup against the Giants.
Since Brees has come to the Saints, the team has gone 3-0 against the Giants and would like to continue that winning streak. I think given Brees’ horrible game against the Falcons and this history, he will have a big game against the Giants. The Saints are probably not going to make the playoffs, but on the outside chance that they might, the team might as well win every game it can.
