Falcons Jump Out Early, Hold On To Defeat Saints 23-13
The Atlanta Falcons raced to a 17-0 lead and the defense made it stand up, picking off five of Drew Brees' passes and ending his NFL-record touchdown streak with a 23-13 victory Thursday night.
The Falcons moved to the brink of clinching the NFC South and dealt a big blow to the Saints (5-7) and their fading playoff hopes. William Moore had two of the five interceptions, which were the most of Brees' career and came four days after he had two passes picked off and returned for touchdowns in a loss to San Francisco.
Brees had thrown a touchdown pass in 54 consecutive games. He had an apparent scoring pass to Darren Sproles late in the first half, but it was nullified by a penalty.

i haven't seen drew brees look that bad since his early days in san diego. that was horrid.
and it wasn't just the inaccurate throws. he was making poor decisions all night.
i don't know what was wrong with him but that loss is absolutely 100% on brees.
