Before the game I said, “This is going to be tight. In order to win we will need the one thing that doesn’t happen much… Brees has to throw a pick.” Sure enough he threw just 1. And it led to the Rams heading back to the Super Bowl.
For the record, I still believe that Brees is the pretty much the most underrated QB in the league. I crunched my own stats and of QBs who played 10 or more games this year, only Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson threw less INTs this year (Alex Smith tied, with 5). Of that same stat set he also has the best completion percentage at 74.4% The dude was in great form and it all comes down to that one toss. Maybe the sun got in his eyes… in the dome… at dark.
Stoked to see my Rams going all the way. I knew it was going to be this way as soon as Brandin Cooks signed on. Any way about it, this was the 2nd best game of the year. Shame that the Pats won and we won’t get a rematch of the best game of this year. The only thing left to figure out is if I’m making my famous carne asasa or fajitas for the super bowl party.
