2. Brees throws at least two touchdowns

Despite how impressive Drew Brees played against the Cardinals, the same can’t be said about his meeting with the Falcons. For the first time in what essentially amounts to an eternity, Brees finished a game without throwing a touchdown.

Heading into Week 11, I look for Drew Brees to throw for two touchdowns to make up for that. In his game against the Cardinals, Brees threw for three touchdowns and one interception. It was that impressive stat line that gave them a 31-9 win over the Cardinals.

Considering that it’s Brees’ third week back, it’s time that he channels some of that energy into his matchup against the Buccaneers.

Last week, the Bucs defense allowed Kyler Murray to throw for three touchdowns and one interception, so there’s no way that Brees can’t throw for at least two. Regardless, it feels like last week was a fluke for Brees and it’s time for him to show that he’s truly back.

The Bucs have allowed their last three opponents over 25+ points a game, then there should be no reason why Brees would have another down day.
