Drew Brees passed for 422 yards and two touchdowns but threw three interceptions as the host Falcons prevailed, 34-20. ... The Chiefs went for a two-point try following Tyler Thigpen's 2-yard touchdown pass to Tony Gonzalez, but Thigpen's pass was batted away to preserve a 20-19 Chargers win.
Keep your eye on ...
Saints' road defense: New Orleans is 1-4 on the road this season (the victory coming in a "home" game in London) and have allowed an average of 31 points and 394 yards in the five games. That could be good news for Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen, who passed for 266 yards and three touchdowns against the equally porous Chargers defense.
Brees' assault: Brees is ahead of Dan Marino's record-setting pace of 1984 when Marino passed for 5,084 yards (2,985 for Brees, 2,672 for Marino through nine games). An interesting note: Brees threw for 422 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in Week 10; Marino passed for 422 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 10 of 1984.
