Anchored by a career game from running back Alvin Kamara, the visiting New Orleans Saints defeated the New York Giants 33-18 on Sunday to improve to 3-1 on the season.
Drew Brees discusses the strong second half, Kamara’s big performance and the chance to make NFL history next week on Monday Night Football.
Brees entered the game vs. the Giants within reach of breaking Peyton Manning’s career passing yards record (71,940).
Brees, who finished 18-of-32 for 217 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions, is now 201 yards away from setting the record.
The Saints, who are now alone atop the NFC South, host the Washington Redskins in a primetime NFC showdown on Oct. 8.
Brees is on the cusp of the amazing individual milestone but is the consummate team-first leader.
Winning will always be the main priority for the Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Fame member.
“Listen, it’s huge but it does not change my approach, my process throughout the week, my mindset or anything,” Brees said. “Just playing the game to make great decisions, playing the game to win, put us in the best position to succeed and all that other stuff takes care of itself.”
