Drew Brees has thrown his first interception of the 2018 season.

After 231 straight throws to open the year without a pick, Brees was picked off by safety Harrison Smith during the team's Sunday night matchup against the Vikings.

Brees was facing pressure on second-and-10 around midfield when he slightly overthrew wide receiver Michael Thomas. Brees became the last starting quarterback to throw an interception this season, as it came eight weeks into the season.
