It was a game that had all the makings of an upset. For the first half.
The upstart Detroit Lions hung around for 30 minutes and made a game of the first-round playoff contest with the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees and then, in standard fashion, Brees took apart the younger, less-experienced Lions defense and ran away with a 45-28 victory last night.
The win proved Brees is the best at what he does and has many reasons for staking that claim.
These are the reasons why Brees is the best at what he does, whether it is the regular season or the playoffs.
