Sunday was not one of Drew Brees' best games. He was only 26/46 with a touchdown and two costly interceptions that nearly handed the Saints their first loss of the season.
But then Brees added another classic finish to his resume'.
He may not have been great all game, but he was when his team absolutely needed him the most. Against the Bucs, that was the final 66 seconds of the game.
That's when Brees stepped on the field after Ryan Lindell missed a 47 yard field goal and went to work.
With 1:06 on the clock, at their own 37 yard line and no timeouts, Brees took over.
He calmly completed three straight passes. First to Jimmy Graham, then to Darren Sproles and when Marques Colston hauled in the final 31-yarder at the nine yard line, the Saints were set for a 27-yard field goal.
"The minute he catches that ball and goes down, our sideline erupts, we spike it and now there's no doubt in anyone's mind that we are going to kick this thing through the uprights and win this game," Brees said after the game.
He makes it sound easy. But the truth is very few can go out and do it the way #9 can time and time again.That's what separates goodness from greatness.
"Being down one is nothing, especially with Drew Brees on your side," Malcolm Jenkins said after the game.
That seemed to be the feeling throughout the locker room with players and coaches. In their eyes' all they need is the ball in Brees' hands at the end and they will have a chance to win.
