Drew Brees Named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month

Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for December and January.

In five games, Brees completed 145-of-197 pass attempts (73.6 percent) for 1,787 yards with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. Brees set NFL single-season records in 2011 for completions (468) and passing yards (5,476) and his 46 touchdown passes led the NFL in 2011.

Brees winning this months award snaps a four-month streak by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who won the award in December/January of 2010 and in the first three months of the 2011 season.

Brees and Rodgers are the top two candidates for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award.
