A look at a player who gave his team a significant boost in Week 11.
It wouldn’t quite qualify as a slump, but through the first nine games, Saints quarterback Drew Brees wasn’t putting up the kind of numbers he did in last year’s Super Bowl season.
That all changed in Sunday’s 34-19 victory against Seattle. Coming off the bye week, Brees had his best statistical day of the season as the Saints scored more than 30 points in back-to-back games for the first time this season.
Brees had a season-high 382 yards passing and four touchdown passes to help the Saints win their third straight game and get to 7-3. Brees completed 29 of 43 passes as the Saints matched their season-high point total.
