New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is renown for his fiery pregame rallying cries with his teammates. But he took the pregame speech to the next level before today’s NFC Championship Game.
Prior to the game against the Rams, we got a great view of Brees from inside the huddle.
Brees paced around, staring down his teammates before giving them one of his most impassioned speeches in recent memory.

The Saints are in the NFC Championship Game for the first time since they hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the 2009 season. Led by Brees, New Orleans went on to win that game in overtime and later beat the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.
The 2018 Saints have similarly gotten this far in the playoffs thanks to another big year from Brees.
Despite averaging his lowest yards per game total since joining the Saints in 2006, Brees set another NFL record for completion percentage, shattering his own previous NFL record with 74.4-percent of his passes completed.
He set a new career-high in passer rating with a league-leading 115.7.
His 1.0-percent interception rate was also the lowest of his career.
The game is being played on FOX.
