Brees has been smoking hot since the start of the 2018 season. He has only been picked off once through 10 games this season, compared to his 25 TD passes.
The 18-year veteran’s 76.9 percent completion percentage is on pace to be the highest ever in the NFL.
Known for his accuracy, Brees has emerged as one of the best passers in the league since coming over to the Big Easy in 2006.
With the season approaching its final month, the Saints quarterback is one of the favorites to win the 2018 Most Valuable Player award.
Unbelievably it is an award that he has never won before, despite his excellent credentials.
Brees has set or tied several passing records. Among those were the career passing yards, career completions, pass completions in a season, and touchdown passes in a game.
With his career nearing its end, Brees has never stopped being a productive player and a reliable man for Sean Payton’s squad.
His accuracy is too much to contain for most of the defenses he has faced this season.
The Saints currently have nine straight wins, starting with him behind center, with their only loss coming against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one.
