NFL Week 1 Player Predictions: Drew Brees

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIISeptember 4, 2012

Drew Brees is the best quarterback in the NFL, depending on who you ask. The New Orleans Saints signal-caller owns a Super Bowl ring, the league's single-season passing record and a slew of endorsements that make his one of the most recognizable faces in America. 

But to the Washington Redskins this week, he's simply "No. 9."

Like anybody else, Brees has to put his pants on one leg at a time and find a way to take care of business. While the Redskins aren't exactly formidable on defense, especially without LaRon Landry patrolling their deep half this year, they present a fair challenge for the six-time Pro Bowler. 

In my latest video, I break down what Drew Brees can expect from the Washington Redskins defense this week. Check out my scouting report in the clip above and leave your thoughts in the comments below. 

Thanks for watching.
