Will Brees burn Falcons again?
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Facing Drew Brees is never easy for the Atlanta Falcons.

New Orleans’ record-setting quarterback is 8-2 in the NFC South rivalry and has put up some staggering numbers: 3,010 yards passing, a 68.1 completion percentage and 20 touchdowns.

“I really don’t think there’s anything to stopping him. I would say slowing him down is the key,” Falcons linebacker Curtis Lofton said. “He’s a very special player.”

Sunday’s home matchup could be one of Atlanta’s toughest against Brees now that new running back Darren Sproles complements an already talented group of receivers.

The Saints rank at or near the top of nearly every NFL offensive category, including a league-high 44 possessions in the red zone and an overall scoring average that ranks second.

“Sproles is a big factor in the red zone, because he’s a fast guy,” defensive end John Abraham said.

“They use screens and a lot of things to get him the ball. You would think the rookie (Mark Ingram) would be doing stuff in there, but you see Sproles in the red zone really getting a lot of touches.”

Brees is having one of the best seasons of his remarkable career. He is the first NFL passer with 3,000 yards in the first nine games of a season and has thrown a TD pass in 36 straight games to tie Brett Favre for the league’s second-longest streak.

“The thing is when we get to him we’ve got to get him down,” said Abraham, a four-time Pro Bowl selection. “He’ll throw the ball in any situation. He’ll flip in the backfield. He’ll do a lot of different things to get the ball out of his hands. We’ve got to wrap him up when we get to him.”
