San Diego's defensive backs are sure to get a workout in New Orleans. Brees, who's thrown at least one touchdown pass in 47 straight regular-season games, completed 35 of 54 passes against the Packers. Brees was with the Chargers from 2001-2005, leaving as a free agent after injuring his right shoulder in the 2005 season finale. That opened the way for Philip Rivers to become the starter.
