Chargers QB is 22-of-25 for 281 yards in 42-14 rout of Raiders. Another qb who the dolphins overlooked.... Drew Brees has never looked better than he did against the hated Oakland Raiders. He was practically perfect. Brees continued his remarkable turnaround from last season's nightmare, throwing a career-high five touchdown passes and setting team records for pass efficiency in leading the surprising San Diego Chargers to a 42-14 rout of the hapless Raiders on Sunday.
Brees completed his first eight passes to quiet the thousands of Raiders fans in the stadium, and finished 22-of-25 for 281 yards and no interceptions. His 88-percent completion rate and 153.1 passer rating were team records. The highest rating a quarterback can have is 158.3.
"Drew's on fire," star running back LaDainian Tomlinson said.
"It was fun," Brees said. "It felt like we could run anything in our base offense and we knew it was going to work. We had that confidence."
