Facing Drew Brees is never easy for the Atlanta Falcons.
New Orleans' record-setting quarterback is 8-2 in the NFC South rivalry and has put up some staggering numbers: 3,010 yards passing, a 68.1 completion percentage and 20 touchdowns.
Falcons linebacker Curtis Lofton doesn't believe the Falcons can stop Brees, so their focus will be to slow him down.
Sunday's home matchup could be one of Atlanta's toughest against Brees now that new running back Darren Sproles complements an already talented group of receivers.
The Saints rank at or near the top of nearly every NFL offensive category, including a league-high 44 possessions in the red zone and an overall scoring average that ranks second.
Falcons defensive end John Abraham believes his team can't afford to be fundamentally weak.
