METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Drew Brees dressed as Iron Man for Halloween.


He may have to play like a superhero to save the season for New Orleans.


With the Saints (2-5) hindered by a historically poor defense and nonexistent running game, all eyes are on Brees to find some way to turn things around, beginning with Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.


A year ago, Brees set an NFL record for passing yards (5,476) and guided the Saints to a 13-3 mark, tying the franchise record for wins. After some contentious negotiations, he agreed to a five-year, $100-million contract that provided the largest amount of guaranteed money ($60 million) in NFL history.


He's having another banner year but is essentially a one-man show for the Saints, who can't run or stop other teams.
