Buffalo Bills Week 8: New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees Must Be Stopped to Win

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints star quarterback Drew Brees is nothing short of an amazing player and an even better man. Frankly, after 2005, he gave the troubled city of New Orleans a sense of optimism after one of the worst disasters in American history when Hurricane Katrina hit the city square. Four years later, everything seemed like it came full circle as the Saints one the Super Bowl over Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.

While Brees isn’t the biggest quarterback by any stretch of the imagination standing at 6-feet tall and 209 pounds, nor does he have the strongest arm either, he has pinpoint accuracy to any of his targets which seems to be virtually anyone on the Saints roster. His time down in the Crescent City as a has been nothing short of amazing as he has amassed over 5,000 yards passing three times which includes giving him the distinction of three of the top five single season passing yard seasons including the number one spot in NFL history.

All and all, this should be a tremendous test for the Buffalo Bills today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which is also known as the “Loud Dome”. Their defense will have to do bring the lumber early and often and hit Brees as much as possible. Also, if Brees were to throw the ball over the middle, stud rookie inside linebacker Kiko Alonso must create at least one turnover either by deflecting the ball to someone else or intercept the pass himself.
