METAIRIE - Drew Brees sees no reason why the offense he leads shouldn't approach the 40-point plateau on a regular basis.

So even though the New Orleans Saints have a chance to improve to 3-0 this Sunday when they host Arizona, Brees is a bit unsettled by the fact that his unit has had a hard time seeing drives all the way through to the end zone.

Through the first two games, New Orleans has converted only one of seven red-zone chances into touchdowns. That's a 14.3 percent conversion rate, which ranks last in the NFL.

Brees says the Saints are "used to being much better than that. So there's a big sense of urgency."

Last season, the Saints ranked second in red-zone efficiency at 68.4 percent.
