The head coach told reporters: "Both quarterbacks have had great careers, very productive, won a lot of games. They both do a lot of things well, complete a lot of passes for a lot of yards, for a lot of touchdowns and not too many turnovers and sacks and bad plays in there.
"So, quick decisions, accurate passing and all that, I think there are a lot of similarities like that.
"I think they each have their own playing styles that are also different but both very effective, both smart guys that see the field well, make quick decisions and manage the game well, find the right matchups, get the ball to their productive players and let them do a lot of the work and stay out of bad plays. That's probably a pretty common thread with both of them over their careers."
Brady failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in 52 games during the defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals, leaving Brees's 54-game record in tact.
