Saints Report: New Orleans Saints vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Coming into Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees had never lost to the team that originally drafted him, boasting a 3-0 head-to-head record.
However, Brees was just 1-48 in games in which his team trailed by at least 17 points which the Saints did on Monday so something was going to have to give.
Saints win 30-27 in overtime.
Running back Alvin Kamara said, “When we go into a game, we try to get the desired outcome which is a win but we know we got to come with our A game every game. Some games are faster starts than others, some games we get in what we want more than other games but it is what it is. It’s different flavor to every game. It was a dirty, dirty, dirty game so we had to claw and scratch to come out on top.”
Quarterback Drew Brees said, “We were not playing Saints football in the first half. We missed a lot of opportunities. At the end of the day, we’re down 20-3 and we made a bunch of mistakes, a bunch of self-inflicted wounds. Second half, we came out and really dialed in execution in both the passing game and the run game, the defense came up with some big stops and obviously we just scratched and clawed our way back.”
The Saints have a week six bye following their 3-2 start to the 2020 season.
