Turns out there are still differing opinions on what is and isn’t a catch.
Those who watched Sunday’s 52-49 win over the New York Giants will always remember it as the day Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed for a career-high 511 yards.
But those who look at the box score down the road will see something else. They won’t see that Brees completed 40-of-50 passes for 511 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception. They’ll instead see that line short of one completion and six yards.
That’s because after the game ended, the official game book changed a Willie Snead fumble that came after a 6-yard gain into an interception. Therefore, Brees ended with 505 yards, which places him shy of his career mark of 510.
