Drew Brees Believes 80 Percent Completion Rate In Sustainable 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Sep 28, 2018 12:14 pm

Through three games, Drew Brees has an 80.6% completion rate on his 129 passing attempts.

The NFL record over the course of a full season is 72%, which is held by Brees, who also leads the league in career percentage.

\"I don\'t see why not,\" Brees said when asked if his current rate is sustainable. \"Listen, it\'s not easy. ... It\'s identifying matchups, it\'s making sure you get positive plays and in just about every case, a completion is a positive play, right?\"

Brees also owns the third, fourth, and ninth-best seasons in terms of accuracy.
