If Drew Brees maintains his recent form through the bulk of this season Cheap Thomas Morstead Youth Jersey , the record-setting Saints quarterback could wind up having one of his best years yet at the age of 39.Brees' completion rate is 80.6 percent through the first three games 鈥?high even by his standard.But is it sustainable?"I don't see why not," Brees said. "I mean, listen, it's not easy."No, he's just made it look that way.Brees began the season 78 completions behind Brett Favre's record of 6,300 and needed barely more than two games to set a new mark 鈥?now 6,326 and counting. Brees has completed 104 of 129 passes for 1,078 yards and eight TDs with no interceptions.This after he set the NFL record last season for completion rate at 72 percent.And he'll likely break Peyton Manning's record of 71,940 yards passing within two more games. He's 417 yards away from that mark.While Brees is pleased by his statistical production, he said he measures his performance more by the quality of his decisions."I've always had a goal that I want to continue to get better each and every year. Sometimes you can't always measure that," Brees said, offering the example of how throwing the ball away shows up as an incompletion, but is markedly preferable to taking a sack or committing a turnover."There's certain things stats don't always show as to your true production," Brees said. "I want to build confidence with my offense. I want to be in control of the huddle. I want to lead the huddle. I want to make those guys believe and get the best out of them."And I want to make great decisions when I have to opportunity 鈥?and then produce. So as long as I'm able to do those things, that's what drives me."The bulk of Brees' passes have gone to receiver Michael Thomas and to running back Alvin Kamara. It's hard to argue with that decision-making. Both have made a number of clutch plays in New Orleans' two victories, and even in their 48-40 loss to Tampa Bay 鈥?blame for which could hardly be pinned on New Orleans' offense.Thomas has 38 catches 鈥?the most by an NFL player through the first three games of a season. He also has 398 yards and three TDs receiving.In discussing his high completion rate, Brees said Thomas has been a "huge" factor."He's a great target. He's a great matchup," Brees said. "It's good to have the weapons that we have on offense. More so than that, it's good that everybody has the mindset that they have New Orleans Saints Chauncey Gardner-Johnson Jersey , and that is that at any time, their number could be called."Kamara has caught 30 passes for 298 yards and one TD receiving. He often catches the ball out of the backfield.While such throws tend to yield modest gains and are often considered "check-down" throws 鈥?safer, easier alternatives to throwing downfield 鈥?Brees is unapologetic."It's about identifying matchups. It's making sure that you get positive plays," Brees said. "In just about every case, a completion is a positive play, right? So maybe that's the difference between you being third-and-7 and third-and-4. And when you look at the percentages of conversion (on third-and-short vs. third-and-long), then that's a big deal."Saints players have long raved about Brees' work ethic, adherence to routine, command of the game plan, knack for reading defenses and ability to make wise decisions.But his aging body still has to be able to make throws under pressure and even scramble once in a while, as he did for a 7-yard touchdown in a victory at Atlanta last Sunday.Saints receiver Austin Carr, who worked out with Brees last summer, said the quarterback's routine "is serious.""He knows what he needs 鈥?what kind of workouts, what kind of training he needs that gives him that durability, gives him the physical edge," Carr said. "He's a guy who's always looking for the edge."Brees used a spin move to avoid a potentially heavy hit by two converging Falcons defensive backs before taking two quick steps and diving into the end zone for a tying score late in the fourth quarter.It was not a third-down play; Brees could have thrown the ball away or slid to protect himself after crossing the line of scrimmage. In this case, he decided it was time to do more.For teammates such as tight end Josh Hill, the TD scramble was a reminder of how many ways Brees still can win a game."Probably the most competitive person I've ever been around and that's a prime example of it," Hill said. "A lot of guys would just slide in that situation and protect themselves Womens Chauncey Gardner-Johnson 2019 Jersey , but the game's on the line and he knew what he had to do." Broken coverage by broken coverage, missed tackle by missed tackle, yard by yard, the Bengals made history for horrific defense. Cincinnati keeps giving up big numbers, and now the losses are mounting, too.Drew Brees threw for three touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints scored on every possession except the last one 鈥?when they took a knee 鈥?during a 51-14 victory on Sunday that left Cincinnati in disarray.The Bengals (5-4) have given up 500 yards in three straight games 鈥?a first in the Super Bowl era 鈥?and are on pace to give up an NFL record for yards in a season. Of all the bad showings on defense, this was the worst.The Saints (8-1) moved the ball even when they were trying to run out the clock. What little was left of the crowd of 52,492 booed loudly when it ended with New Orleans taking a knee three consecutive plays 鈥?technically, Cincinnati's only defensive stop of the day."I haven't seen anything like it," linebacker Preston Brown said. "Every week we're giving up too many yards."The Bengals knew they'd be in for some growing pains when they decided to field the youngest team in coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons, with most of the inexperience on defense. They also brought in coordinator Teryl Austin, who changed some of their schemes.It's not working, and the Bengals seem to have run out of ideas for what to do next."Obviously, your confidence gets shaken," Lewis said. "I just addressed that with them. They have to focus and get determined. It's their job to do it right."Shaken, and deeply disturbed."I'm kind of in shock after a loss like that," linebacker Jordan Evans said.In the last four games, the Bengals have given up 481 New Orleans Saints Connor McGovern Jersey , 551, 576 and 509 yards. They're allowing an average of 454 yards per game, worst in the league.They're on pace to allow 7,272 yards, which would be an NFL record. The 2012 Saints are the only team to give up 7,000 in a season, 7,042 in 2012.The Bengals opened the season 4-1 despite giving up a lot of yards. Four defensive touchdowns played major roles in the fast start, and the offense managed to keep up and pull out two wins at the end. With A.J. Green out indefinitely because of a toe injury, the offense is limited."We always want to score, but at the end of the day, our defense has got to get some stops," receiver Tyler Boyd said. "You can't let the other team score on every drive."That's what the Saints did.Brees led the Saints to touchdowns on all five first-half possessions with a nearly perfect performance 鈥?only two incompletions. His 17-yard TD to Michael Thomas with 2 seconds left in the half gave him 509 career touchdown passes, one more than Brett Favre for second on the career list. Peyton Manning holds the record with 539.Brees had his way with the Bengals' historically bad defense , even diving over the pile to score a 1-yard touchdown.The Bengals matched the most lopsided defeat in franchise history and gave up the second-most points in club history. In the first half alone, the Saints piled up 311 yards and had 21 first downs on 40 plays. The 28 points allowed in the second quarter matched the club record.Even more shocking: Cincinnati was coming out of a bye and had two weeks to prepare for the Saints. The Bengals thought they'd get some of their issues resolved."It didn't look like it," Brown said. "We gave up 500 yards."
