Ahmad Brooks’ hit on Drew Brees revisited

As far as game- and season-changing plays go, this was Exhibit A as a flashpoint for the San Francisco 49ers last year.

Niners fans cringe when it comes up but with the 49ers playing at the Superdome again this Sunday, the scab is still fresh.

It’s when Ahmad Brooks clotheslined New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees from the front with just over three minutes to play and the Niners holding onto a three-point lead. The ball, and thankfully not Brees’ head, was knocked loose and Patrick Willis recovered the fumble, seemingly sealing a victory for San Francisco.
