Drew Brees completed 24-of-38 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in New Orleans' 23-20, Week 17 win over the Bucs.
Had the Saints been facing any other opponent, they would have closed the book on their miserable 2014 with a defeat. As it is, Brees' three picks and lack of big plays was a microcosm of his season. Brees finishes with 4,952 yards, putting him below 5,000 for the first time since 2010. His 33 touchdowns tie for his fewest since 2007, while his 17 picks were his second most since 2010. All in all, it was not a bad season, but enough below Brees' lofty standards that concerns about him entering his decline phase will have to be put to rest on the field in 2015. Despite all that, Brees will enter next season as an obvious top-five fantasy quarterback. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:15:00 PM
