After the Saints thrilling 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Drew Brees is now one of three quarterbacks in NFL history to beat all 32 teams.  

"It was a little bit of a monkey on my back.  It's just kind of odd.  Obviously I played for an AFC team, the Chargers; and now I play for an NFC team.  I played these guys once as a Charger, and I guess this was my fourth time as a Saints.  For one reason or another, I had just never gotten a win against these guys."

Brees has that win against the Ravens now; and he had an efficient outing, going 22-30 (73.3%) for 212 yards and 2 touchdowns.  The ground game also turned in a solid performance against a top 10 rushing defense, grinding out 39 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown.

"Call it 'dent the defense.'  Maybe it's just for 2 or 3 yards in the first half; and then all of a sudden those 2 and 3 yards turn into 5, 6, and 7 yard runs and all of a sudden you break one.  The versatility we have with Mark [Ingram], with AK [Alvin Kamara] when we bring Taysom [Hill] into the game, there's just so many things we can do with our run game."
