Drew Brees completed 20-of-27 passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 11, 38-17 win over the Raiders.

Brees was removed from the game with just under 4:00 to go with the Saints up large. Chase Daniel came in and got to run the offense for a few minutes. With the running game showing up again on Sunday, Brees wasn't forced to sling it all over the yard for New Orleans to win. He took what the Raiders gave him. Brees found Jimmy Graham from one yard out in the first quarter, then hit Lance Moore for his other two scores. He's thrown eight touchdowns compared to just one interception over his past three games. Brees and the Saints are now back to 5-5 and host the 49ers next Sunday.
