Drew Brees completed 22-of-33 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns in Week 12 against the Falcons, leading the Saints to a 17-13 victory for their ninth win of the season. Both of Brees' touchdowns came in the first half on Thursday night.
Brees and the Saints' offense found it difficult to sustain drives in the second half, managing a single field goal in the final two quarters at the Georgia Dome.
Fantasy impact: After seeing some of Atlanta's recent performances, fantasy owners are likely a bit disappointed that Brees only finished with two touchdowns. His biggest play of the night came on a 44-yard score to Jimmy Graham, but aside from that pass, the Falcons prevented Brees from connecting on any big plays for the majority of the night.
The Saints head to Seattle for a matchup with the No. 2 pass defense in Week 13. Brees is always a QB1, but he'll face one of his toughest tests of the year against the Seahawks. Two passing touchdowns would be a solid outing for him.
