• 49ers return two Drew Brees interceptions for touchdowns

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Nov 26, 2012
    "Obviously, that can't happen," Brees said of the interceptions. San Francisco's defense has the ability to make anyone look bad, even the great Drew Brees. Mistake and Drew Brees rarely show up in the same sentence, but it has to show up multiple times in the loss to the 49ers as Brees' poor judgment on a couple of throws changed the entire complexion of the game. The Saints lost 31-21 inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, thanks in large part to two Brees interceptions that were returned for touchdowns in a span of four game-time minutes in the second and third quarters. Brees also ranks 28th in fourth-quarter quarterback rating at 75.3. Of the 36 quarterbacks in the NFL passer rankings, Brees ranks 33rd in the NFL before the Monday night game in completion percentage in the fourth quarter sitting at 54.2 percent with only Jacksonville's Chad Henne, Philadelphia's Nick Foles and Kansas City's Brady Quinn with worse percentages. Other quarterbacks with four fourth-quarter TD passes include Cleveland's Brandon Weeden, Minnesota's Christian Ponder, Miami's Ryan Tannehill, the Jets' Mark Sanchez and Jacksonville's Blaine Gabbert.
