There's really not much to get excited about after a performance like this offensively, except for the two minute drill at the end that set up the game winning field goal.

Drew Brees: C- (2.35) I was set to give Brees a D, or even a D- before that final drive. The only thing he did worth mentioning as a positive was find Jimmy Graham. Beyond that, he was at times inaccurate, at times not quick enough getting rid of the ball, and often rattled. That'll happen when you're continually getting drilled by linemen because your offensive line isn't doing its job. At some point the line needs to seriously improve or Brees won't make it through this season alive. He finished 26 for 46, 322 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions that set up the Bucs' only two scores. If Brees doesn't throw those two picks, I'm not sure the Bucs score in this game. But the two minute drill was incredible and it gave the Saints what they needed in the clutch to win the game. Hence the grade boost. It still wasn't a good day for Brees, though. As many hits as he took there is no excuse for those two turnovers that were bad picks to linebackers dropping in coverage faking flat coverage before dropping into zone. That's fooled Brees badly before (49ers and Falcons games in the past come to mind). He was also fortunate to not get charged with a lost fumble on that play he got blown up by Clayborn where he held on to the ball too long thanks to a questionable blow to the helmet call.
