NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees’ veteran savvy and enduring skill as a passer were enough for the Saints to overcome the loss of two top receivers in the past few days.

Brees completed 80.6% of his passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns, and the 41-year-old rushed for a 1-yard score to lead New Orleans to a 27-24 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

The vintage performance by the NFL’s all-time leading passer came after the Saints had to adjust their game plan because of Michael Thomas’ hamstring injury on Wednesday and Emmanuel Sanders’ positive COVID-19 test following Thursday’s practice.

“Each week, it’s finding a different way to win,” Brees said. “Each week, it’s finding different guys that are having to step up and contribute in ways that maybe they haven’t in the past.

“So I can’t say enough about guys’ resolve and resilience to be able to do that,” Brees added.
