The Saints had a clear (if somewhat difficult) path to the playoffs after recovering from their awful start, but a 23-13 loss to the Falcons has dropped them to 5-7. Drew Brees' touchdown streak came to an end at 54 games, but it wasn't his lack of touchdowns that cost the Saints -- it was the five interceptions he threw, combined with some serious clock-management mistakes. Is the Saints' comeback story at an end?

An unusual performance

Drew Brees will throw the occasional interception, but the five he threw in this game were an outlier.


Which was more surprising in Thursday night's Saints-Falcons game?
