|(11/9/14) Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw three touchdowns in a Week 10 loss to the 49ers.
Brees completed 28 of 47 pass attempts for 292 yards, but also threw two interceptions.
Brees was almost the hero at the end of regulation when his Hail Marry pass was caught by tight end Jimmy Graham in the end zone. However, Graham was called for offensive pass interference, nullifying the winning score. Graham was on the receiving end on two of Brees' touchdowns, with wide receiver Brandin Cooks catching the other.
In overtime, Brees fumbled the ball after being sacked in Saints’ territory. The turnover led to the 49ers kicking the winning field goal.
The Saints will play at home against Cincinnati in Week 11.

Drew Brees shows he's still got it
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/28/14) Go figure. Drew Brees finally had a performance befitting of Drew Brees against a Packers team that entered Week 8 having allowed the lowest passer rating of any team.
Of course, even though it was his first three-touchdown game this season, he now has six straight games with at least two touchdowns and four straight with at least 300 passing yards. Hard to say he's anything less than elite with those kinds of numbers, even if he hasn't quite performed up to his usual standards.
Obviously, he's a start for Thursday's game at Carolina. For more of my takeaways from Week 8 check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Brees finished 27 of 32 (84.4 percent) for 311 yards and three scores with no turnovers. After not throwing a touchdown pass in the first half, Brees tossed three in the first 20 minutes of the second half. He hit speedster Brandin Cooks with a picture-perfect 50-yarder, found tight end Jimmy Graham from 22 yards out and flicked an easy 2-yarder to tight end Josh Hill.
Brees posted a 138.4 passer rating and added a 6-yard rush. He'll visit the Panthers for Thursday Night Football.
