4. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
Don’t let the fact that the New Orleans Saints have become a more “ground and pound” team, behind a duo of stud running backs and a young and ferocious defense, fool you into thinking that Drew Brees is anything close to washed up. If you want any evidence to the contrary, look at how he helped guide the Saints to a 15-point comeback win against the Washington Redskins in Week 11, with less than three minutes left in the game. Brees likely won’t finish the year with the most passing attempts in the NFL, which will break his streak of over a decade in leading in that category, but he’s still fourth in the NFL in average passing yards per game (278).
