NFL Boilers: Brees big in Week 8
Drew Brees might be making a midseason case for league MVP.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback tossed five touchdowns, without an interception, in a win over Buffalo Sunday, giving him 19 scoring passing with only five interceptions at the midway point of the season.
The former Boilermaker was nominated for the FedEx Air Player-of-the-Week.
Brees' five TD performance was the eighth of his career, setting an NFL record.
Kawann Short is making a big impact in Charlotte, as the Panthers' defense has assisted in the team's turnaround from a slow start.
Here's a quick Q&A with the rookie defensive tackle.
Nick Hardwick and Philip Rivers have played together for 10 years.
Being a Brees' fan, it's sort of hard to hear Hardwick say nice things about Rivers, isn't it?
Ryan Kerrigan made a bad bet.
