Brees Named Player of the Week

The NFL will announce Wednesday that quarterback Drew Brees has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his hand in the undefeated Saints’ 48-27 win over the previously unbeaten New York Giants on Sunday.


Brees led a potent offensive attack that cut through the league’s top-ranked defense for seven touchdowns (scored by seven different players), completing 23 of 30 passes (76.7%) for a season-high 369 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a near-perfect passer rating of 156.8.

The Saints scored touchdowns on their first four possessions, with Brees finding Jeremy Shockey, Robert Meachem and Lance Moore on scoring passes to help put up 34 points in the first half. He later threw a TD strike to Marques Colston to round out his day.

During the high-powered first half, Brees completed 15 consecutive passes, which set a team-record for the most consecutive completions in a single game. He also holds the franchise mark of 17 straight completions over a two-game span, a record he posted in December of 2007.

The honor marks the ninth time Brees has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week since joining the Saints in 2006 and his 11th career POW award. He was Player of the Week following the win over Detroit in the season’s opening game and went on to win NFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for September.

He will most likely win the player of the month again and make it two months in a row. This was quite possibly the best game I've seen him play, the man is just phenomenal.
