Saints' Brees sees playoff clash with Brady's Bucs as fate

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees periodically discusses his long, extraordinary NFL journey in terms of fate and destiny.

The Saints quarterback says, for example, that his career-threatening throwing shoulder injury at the end of the 2005 season was meant to be. It precipitated his departure from the Chargers and move to New Orleans, where he shattered passing records and won a Super Bowl - all while helping rebuild a beloved American city that was reeling from Hurricane Katrina's devastation.

So when six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady decided to leave New England and begin a new chapter with Tampa Bay, in the NFC South, Brees couldn't escape the sense that he'd see Brady in a high-stakes game in January.
