NFL Boilers: Brees runs one in for Saints' Week 10 win


• The Saints are now 7-2, having won seven straight games including Sunday's whopping of the Buffalo Bills.

Drew Brees, as it happened, didn't throw a touchdown pass — he did run for one score — even though New Orleans scored 47. It's led to speculation about what exactly the Saints are going to do in the offseason, with Brees in the last year of his contract.

New Orleans could let its franchise quarterback go, although it's equally as possible it decides to extend him. NFL insider Ian Rapoport gave his thoughts over the weekend, but also said that Brees, hitting on 71.7 percent of his throws, is missing targets.

• Raheem Mostert might miss some time with an A/C shoulder sprain, suffered in the 9ers' first win of the season Sunday.

Former Boilermakers Jason King and Jordan Roos attended Purdue's game on Saturday in Evanston.
