Drew Brees completed 21-of-32 passes for 298 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception versus the Falcons in Week 10.

The Falcons appeared to be on the verge of a blowout after Brees' first-quarter interception to Asante Samuel, but the Saints took advantage of poor tackling the rest of the way. Brees pump-faked Jimmy Graham to a 29-yard score and followed up with a 14-yard touchdown just before halftime. His 7-yard connection with Marques Colston gave the Saints an 11-point lead early in the third quarter, and they never trailed again. On pace to clear 5,000 yards for the third time in his career, Brees draws Oakland's burnable secondary in Week 11.
