Brees completed 29 of 40 pass attempts for 349 yards and five touchdowns, adding a one-yard rushing touchdown in the Saints' 48-46 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.
Brees rebounded from last week's dud with an enormous stat line against one of the league's best defenses. He kicked off the scoring early, tossing three touchdowns to his tight ends in the first quarter before diving over the top of the pile on fourth-and-goal for his fourth score in the second quarter. As has been the case throughout his career, he came through huge in the fourth quarter, leading two more touchdown drives inside the final six minutes of the game, though some late heroics by George Kittle and an ill-advised facemask penalty ultimately cost New Orleans the win. The 40-year-old quarterback still has plenty left in the tank, and he'll get a chance to keep the momentum going Week 15 against a Colts team that was just shredded by Tampa Bay for 38 points.
Brees completed 18 of 30 pass attempts for 184 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions, losing one yard on his lone rushing attempt in the Saints' 26-18 win over the Falcons on Thursday.
Brees finished with easily his worst game of the 2019 campaign, failing to pass for at least 200 yards in a full game for the first time all season. Brees also matched a season-low in completion percentage (60) among games that he finished. The veteran signal-caller has played solid football since returning from a thumb injury in Week 8, and it was discouraging to see this kind of performance against a below-average Falcons defense. Things won't get any easier for the quarterback in Week 14 when the Saints face the 49ers in an important NFC showdown.
Brees completed 30 of 39 pass attempts, throwing for 311 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 34-31 win against the Panthers.
The 12-time Pro Bowl signal-caller has been his typically dominant self since returning from the thumb injury that cost him five games earlier this year, completing 76.5 percent of his pass attempts and throwing to a 9:2 TD:INT since Week 8. Brees remains a top-shelf fantasy option heading into his Week 13 matchup against Atlanta, as he will be facing a Falcons defense Thanksgiving night that surrendered 313 passing yards and three touchdowns to Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston on Sunday.
