9Big pick closes rare off night for Drew Brees
Drew Brees hasn’t had many rough patches in 2018. But Thursday night was a big one. With his New Orleans Saints trailing 13-10 to the Dallas Cowboys late in the fourth quarter, Brees had a chance to give a memorable finish to what had been a forgettable night. But the chance didn’t last long.
On the second play of what would be New Orleans’ final possession, Brees was intercepted by Jourdan Lewis. This wasn’t an especially great play by Lewis, either. Brees was just off target, throwing it well behind Alvin Kamara.
Brees has been spectacular in 2018. But his outing on Thursday night was a brutal one. The game-clinching interception was unquestionably one of the biggest blunders any player made in Week 13.
