Drew Brees has done it all during his legendary 18-year career, including winning a Super Bowl with the Saints.
But a win over the Ravens in Baltimore this Sunday could be the coolest of his career as he would join Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as one of only three quarterbacks in NFL history to beat all 32 teams.
What would that mean to Brees, who’s 0-4 lifetime against the Ravens? Well, the ultra-competitive QB kind of danced around the possibility of joining that group when talking to reporters on Wednesday:
I’d love to beat these guys. They’re always a great team when you play them. So you always know it’s going to be a slugfest. You don’t get to play them all that often, right? It’s a once-every-four-year deal being AFC/NFC. They’re a great team, they’r the No. 1 defense in the league right now so we have our work cut out.
He then took a trip down memory lane of facing the Ravens:
This goes back to the days of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and (Terrell) Suggs. The last time we played these guys was Monday Night Football at our place, four years ago. What’d they beat us, 35-27 or something like that? I remember those scores.
The score was actually 34-27 but Brees’ competitive spirit and memory of the times he came up short are probably two big reasons why he’s been so successful.
Brees could make even more history Sunday, as he needs just one TD pass to become the fourth QB to have 500 TD passes in his career.
