New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees joined NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk for an interview Monday, breaking down the 48-27 blowout of the New York Giants in Week 6. Brees discusses the keys to the win, as well as the Saints’ running game and the improved defense this season.
“We felt like there were going to be opportunities, but it all started up front,” Brees explained about moving the ball against the Giants. “It all started with our ability to protect. They’ve got of the best front fours in the NFL in regards to rushing the passer, getting sacks, getting turnovers, and those types of things. We put that at a premium early on, realizing if we could protect and hold the ball a little bit, that we’d be able to push the ball downfield and get some big plays. Sure enough, we were able to do that.”
