The Falcons intercepted Drew Brees five times, and Atlanta beat the New Orleans Saints, 23-13, in Atlanta on Thursday night. Brees’ NFL-record streak of 54 games with a touchdown pass ended, as Atlanta (11-1) surged to an early 17-0 lead and held on for the win. The Falcons can clinch the NFC South with a Tampa Bay loss at Denver on Sunday.

William Moore had two interceptions for the Falcons. Atlanta’s Matt Bryant kicked three field goals, while Michael Turner and Tony Gonzalez registered the Falcons’ touchdowns.

Brees finished 28 of 50 for 341 yards for New Orleans (5-7). He threw an apparent touchdown pass to Darren Sproles in the second quarter, but the play was called back due to a penalty. Saints’ receiver Lance Moore caught seven passes for 123 yards.
