Drew Brees keeps NFC offensive player of the week in the Saints’ hands

Last week, the NFC offensive player of the week was Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.

This week, the NFC offensive player of the week is the guy whose passes to Graham put the tight end in position for such honors. Quarterback Drew Brees has been selected for the weekly prize, the 15th time he’s been recognized since joining the Saints in 2006.

Brees had 413 yards and four touchdowns in Monday night’s 38-17 victory against the Dolphins. Brees posted his highest completion percentage of the season by hitting on 30-of-39 passes and he didn’t throw an interception for the first time this season.

The effort continued a strong start to the season for Brees, who has now thrown for at least 300 yards in each of the last nine games. That equals the NFL record for that particular streak, something Brees was probably aware of since it was his record that he tied on Sunday.

    I absolutely agree with this OPOTW, good job Drew. He was lights out in the SuperDome

    Yes, we all know you can’t give the award to Peyton Manning every week so let’s pass it around alittle bit. Just give the ‘offensive player of the week’ to Peyton when he wins the superbowl.

    Gotta give it to Drew, he’s the best football player since the AFL-NFL merger.
    As for the Dolphins put some ice on it you just got a #blackandgoldBEATDOWN

    Well concord, since you’re making predictions, here’s one for ya: I agree, the Broncos will advance to the super bowl. Then, Peyton will lose, once again, to the New Orleans Saints…42-33!

    “Just give the ‘offensive player of the week’ to Peyton when he wins the superbowl.”

    When Peyton starts playing in the NFC, he’ll have a shot at NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

    Payton had the same numbers in 3 quarters. This award is invalid.

    I think some commenters reading comprehension is invalid since this award is NFC player of the week. Not AFC.

    And I think Brees should win AFC offensive player of the week… Geez people learn your conferences before commenting

    It’s amazing how many people still think Peyton should have won this award. It’s the NFC….NFC…….NFC……offensive player of the week. Peyton plays in the AFC……AFC!

    Concord. How embarrassing.

  13. mikedrake00 says: Oct 2, 2013 1:20 PM

    Lol. I don’t even to say anything, concord just read above.

    Brees has Sproles and Graham and that’s really it.
    No run game to speak off and a shoddy OL this year.

    Peyton has Welker, D. Thomas, Decker, J. Thomas, and 3 decent RBs and a better OL.

    Peyton is no doubt a great player but when talking about great QBs of this era very few people seem to point out that among Brady, Brees, Manning it has been Peyton who has always had probowl caliber weapons at every skill position.

    Brady had Moss and Welker for a couple of years but mostly has done it with no names.

    Brees has never had a probowl WR or RB. Never.

    Brees versus Manning part two. That will settle it all. Winner takes all.
