Brees partied it up last night.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has had an incredible season for his team, leading them to the best record in the NFL. The Saints played their first playoff game on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles and ended up winning the game 20-14. Despite being down 14-0, Brees led the team back into the game and cemented their spot in the NFC Championship round.
Considering Brees turns 40 on Tuesday, and he's been so good this season, it only makes sense his team would throw him a surprise birthday party. What made this party so special is that it took place right after the team's win on Sunday, making the celebration that much sweeter.
The party took place at the Port Orleans Brewery in New Orleans, with notable attendees including Keegan Michael-Key, rapper Choppa, as well as his teammates and head coach Sean Payton.
Even Ellen Degeneres took part in the festivities with a pre-recorded message saying 'You are kind, you are generous, you are such a great guy on and off the field. I'm very grateful to call you my friend. I'm sending you all my love — happy birthday! I'll see you after the Super Bowl, go Saints!"
Brees and his Saints teammates will look to secure their spot in the Super Bowl when they take on the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship game.
