As we went enter the final week of the ninth month of the year, a tribute to the ninth wonder of the world, Drew Christopher Brees, No. 9 in your program, No. 1 in your heart.

Nine things you should know about No. 9:

•He has only thrown 12 “bad” passes in two games, according to statistical analysis by Stats, Inc. The independent statistical research firm charts every NFL pass and categorizes incompletions by six types: pass dropped; poor throw; pass defensed; pass hit at line; intercepted; or “other.” In 68 attempts, Brees has thrown 12 “negative” passes: six poor throws, four passes defensed and two interceptions. That percentage of 17.6 of “negative passes” is the second lowest in the league. Brett Favre has only two poor throws, one pass defensed and zero interceptions in 48 attempts.
