In addition to the 16 years between them, Brees’ numbers are staggering when compared to Goff’s – as any 18-year veteran’s stats would be when lined up next to a third-year quarterback’s. He has 155 wins to Goff’s 24 victories, 74,437 yards to Goff’s 9,581 and only 455 more touchdown passes than the Cal product.

Yet, as much as there is separating these two quarterbacks, one thing is bringing them together: the NFC championship. All of those stats will be thrown out the window on Sunday when they meet for a spot in the Super Bowl. The only numbers that matter this weekend are the ones on the scoreboard at the Superdome]]>

Jared Goff has played two.

Brees has a Super Bowl win. Goff has one postseason victory.

Brees has 4,510 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his playoff career. Goff has 445 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

Sean Payton is 8-5 in the postseason with one world title. Sean McVay has one playoff win in only two games.

There’s absolutely no comparison between arguably the two most important people on the Saints and Rams when it comes to playoff experience. That’s not the Rams’ fault, though. After all, the combined age of Goff and McVay (56) is about the same as Payton (55). And Brees, who just turned 40 this week, has been in the NFL since 2001 when Goff was only 7 years old]]>

The New Orleans Saints have one of the best home-field advantages in sports at the Superdome, making it very difficult for visiting teams to win. That’s exactly what the Los Angeles Rams will be trying to do on Sunday, going to the Superdome for the second time this season.

Drew Brees is outstanding at home, but Jared Goff has been excellent when playing indoors, too – even at the Superdome. His best game during a disastrous rookie season happened to come against the Saints at the Superdome, where he completed 20 of 32 passes for 214 yards, three touchdowns and one interception]]>

He has seen everything, good and bad, that they've done since arriving together, quarterback and coach, in a rebuilding city in 2006 to try to upgrade the fortunes of its woebegone football team.

So when Payton does something like, say, dial up a fake...

<![CDATA[Drew Brees, Jared Goff have 3rd-largest QB age gap in playoff history]]>
On the NFC side, it’ll be Jared Goff against Drew Brees – a guy in his third year against a savvy veteran who came into the league in 2001. In the AFC, it’ll be first-year starter Patrick Mahomes against Tom Brady, who has more Super Bowl rings than any other quarterback in NFL history.

Age is just a number, but in these two cases, it carries historical significance. The 18 years and one month that separate Brady and Mahomes is the largest age gap between two quarterbacks in postseason history. Brees, who turned 40 on Tuesday, has 15 years and nine months on Goff, who’s just 24. That’s the third-largest quarterback age difference ever in the playoffs, just ahead of Steve DeBerg and Todd Marinovich in 1991]]>

While a lot of people buzzed about the Bears and Cowboys’ chances, the Saints’ best player isn’t surprised to be facing the Rams.

The top four seeds all advanced, setting up a pair of compelling title games. In the AFC championship, the Chiefs and Patriots will face off in a rematch of New England’s memorable 43-40 victory earlier this season. In the NFC, the Rams get another shot at the Saints in New Orleans, after having lost there in November, 45-35.

The quarterback matchups offer a nice symmetry, with one young star facing a veteran, soon-to-be Hall of Famer: Patrick Mahomes versus Tom Brady, and Jared Goff versus Drew Brees]]>
