We only sacked Brees once (Woodyard), and only hit him one other time (Von). You're normally not going to beat Brees with those numbers.
Brees needs passing lanes because he is so short and I thought our Dline did a good job clogging up those lanes and making him uncomfortable
I wasnt expecting us to sack him a lot since he is one of the hardest qbs to sack like Manning
But the main thing was we needed to clog up the throwing lanes and force him to move around and I thought we did that
