The 40-year-old quarterback can become a free agent in March and will reportedly stay with the Saints, but he was unwilling to confirm anything after the defeat.

"I'm not making any comments on that other than I've told you guys this for the last couple of years, I've always just taken it one year at a time and kind of reevaluate each offseason," he told a news conference, "then find the things I want to get better at and move on."

Brees, who went 26 of 33 for 208 yards with a touchdown and an interception, said Minnesota executed better than New Orleans.

"It was a hard-fought football game. We played a really good team and obviously they came ready to play and at the end of the day they just made more plays than we did," he said.

"I love the way that we fought in the fourth quarter (forcing OT after falling behind 20-10). We really didn't play our best football up until that point but put together some good drives during that period of time and put ourselves in a position to win.

"But unfortunately they just made a few more plays than we did."
