He had 18 aimed passes(this does not count spikes and throw aways)and completed 14 of them with one being dropped.
Thats 14-17 on aimed passes not dropped and 18 yards per completion.
He was 4-4 on passes of passes traveling 20 or more yards in the air.
He also had a qb rating of 149.6 against the blitz(they blitzed 10 times).
Gamble also shut down anyone who Brees dared to throw it to when Gamble was on them.This includes Jimmy Graham on an endzone play. The only pass completed against him was to sproles for 4 yards.
Also our D really disrupted Brees depsite the fact it wont show up on the stat line as sacks.
20 of his 50 dropbacks came under pressure and we only bltized 10 times.
He was 6-19 for 59 yards, a pick 6 and a sack on those 20 dropbacks.
For comparison he was under pressure on 19 of 54 dropbacks against the skins and that required 20 blitzes to our 10.
He also was only able to attempt 2 passes of 20 or more yards. He completed 1 of them for 29 to colston on the play where Norman fell down. This is signicfant because last year Brees averaged a TD AND 74.5 yards a game on passes over 20 yards in the air. He also attempted them 4.5 times a game last year.
Alexander and Johson led the team in qb hurries with 4 a piece
