Drew Brees' five interceptions were just part of a colossal meltdown in the Georgia Dome that saw the Saints fall to the Atlanta Falcons 23-13 all but eliminating New Orleans from the playoff picture.

The Saints quarterback also saw his streak of 54 consecutive games with a touchdown toss come to a close, as Brees failed to toss a touchdown pass.  Late in the first half, Brees'scoring pass to running back Darren Sproles was wiped out by a penalty against tight end Jimmy Graham.

The Saints fall to 5-7, two games behind in the Wild Card race for the NFL playoffs.

Atlanta's William Moore had two of the five interceptions, which were a career high for Brees and followed on the heels of two pick-sixes against San Francisco.
