METAIRIE, La. – Saints quarterback Drew Brees knows Thursday night’s curtain raiser with Green Bay could be a matchup foreshadowing this season’s NFC championship game.

The Saints and Packers are both hot picks to get to the Super Bowl.

But, according to Brees, this game is a lot less about the future than it is about the present.

“I’m sure we’re going to get questions about future playoff implications and all that stuff about this game,” Brees said. “We see ourselves as a great team and as a contender. They see themselves as a great team and as a contender. The fact of the matter is it’s one game and it just happens to be the first game of the season on a Thursday night on national television.”
