If The Saints Beat The Ravens Today, Drew Brees Will Hit Another Special Milestone
Drew Brees doesn't care much about records, but he definitely likes to win.
Here's the deal—if Drew does win, regardless of his feelings about records, he will be in some pretty good company. A win for Brees in Baltimore will mark the first time he beats the Ravens and will also make him just the third quarterback in NFL history to beat all 32 NFL teams.
The only other QBs to reach that milestone are Brett Favre and Peyton Manning. Like I said, pretty good company.
It will be a tough matchup for Brees, facing a Ravens team that is 4-2 and only giving up 270.8 yards per game. Baltimore is also stingy in the points-allowed department, giving up a mere 12.8 points per game. Both of those stats I mentioned are league best at the moment.
To me, I feel like this is actually the perfect stage for another lights-out performance from our future Hall of Fame quarterback—but only if he achieves one thing: No turnovers. In his 18-year career Drew has faced the Ravens four times.
Three of those matchups were in a Saints uniform and only one of the meetings was even close. The one thing that has killed him in all of those matchups were interceptions.
In the last meeting, Brees lit up the Ravens in primetime for 420 yards and three touchdowns but still lost 34-27.
He's got a chance to make history this Sunday, and hopefully, we all get to witness greatness.
