Shocking, right?

Don’t expect this to change each week unless Brees lays an egg. He certainly didn’t against Atlanta (does he ever) with 357 yards and two touchdowns.

A tad underwhelming against two rookie corners, but Atlanta quietly boasts one of the better safety combos in the NFL. Brees looked like Brees and as the rankings show, he has plenty of weapons on offense and is backed by a good defense. Big things are on the way.
