New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has been nominated for the NFL's Clutch Performer of the Year for his seven-touchdown performance against the New York Giants, the league announced Friday.
The winner will be announced at the "5th Annual NFL Honors" awards show in San Francisco, a two-hour primetime special to air nationally on February 6 on CBS the night before Super Bowl 50.
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.
