Brees: Saints ‘only going to get better’ before playoffs



NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints’ first two-game skid since Week 3 doesn’t have quarterback Drew Brees panicking quite yet. Brees lists a number of reasons why he believe the Saints are “only going to get better” as they head into the playoffs. Brees says he’s still trying to ramp up and regain his rhythm in the offense after missing four games with fractured ribs and a punctured lung. Brees also notes that other key absences, like that of receiver Michael Thomas, will pay off when the club is healthier for the postseason.
