Drew Brees’ Neck Extends As Saints Quarterback Gets Whiplash on Roughing Passer Penalty (GIF)

Drew Brees is lucky he still has a head on his shoulders after taking a massive hit from Ahmad Brooks on Sunday.

The Saints quarterback got knocked by Brooks on third-and-2 late in the fourth quarter. Brees fumbled on the play — recovered by the 49ers — but Brooks was called for roughing the passer. The Saints went on to tie the game on that drive. New Orleans won on a field goal with two seconds left in the game.

The Saints benefitted from the call, but Brees will undoubtedly have some neck soreness after the game. He resembled a brachiosaurus when the play was slowed down.
