Drew Brees: We’ve got bigger fish to fry

The Saints became the first team to book a playoff berth when they beat the Falcons on Thursday and they have four weeks to enjoy life as NFC South champions before the postseason gets underway.

Don’t expect to see the team holding any parades, though. Winning the division is nothing new after nabbing division titles in 2017 and 2018, so quarterback Drew Brees made it clear that the team isn’t going to be resting on its laurels between now and January.

“We’ve got bigger fish to fry,” Brees said, via NOLA.com.

Among the tasks still on the table for the Saints are wrapping up a bye through the first round of the playoffs and trying for the top seed in the NFC. Next Sunday’s home game against the 49ers looms large on both fronts and gives the Saints plenty to focus on once they’re done celebrating Thursday’s win.

  1. This is the second game this season where NO has failed to cover multiple onside kicks. In the Chicago game the Bears recovered back to back onside kicks.
    I have been waiting for an opposing coach to come out at halftime and go for an onside kick.

  2. maybe they should focus on playing a game where they dont give up 100+ penalty yards… if the defense cant figure that out then they need to hang it up… And get rid of Apple, we would be better off playing with 10 players.
