New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has been named the NFL's Clutch Performer of the Year for his seven-touchdown performance against the New York Giants, the league announced at "NFL Honors" in San Francisco Saturday night.
The award was voted on by fans. Brees was also a finalist for the FedEx Air Player of the Year, which Cardinals' Carson Palmer won.
Brees completed 39 of 50 passes for 505 yards and seven touchdowns with a 131.7 passer rating in the Saints' 52-49 win over the New York Giants. His seventh touchdown pass tied the game with 0:36 remaining in the game. The Saints would go on to convert the game-winning field goal as time expired.
