FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - New England's defense is in for its toughest test of the season Sunday, when quarterback Drew Brees leads the high-powered New Orleans Saints (5-0) into a highly anticipated clash with the Patriots (4-1).

Brees has thrown for 1,722 yards, second only to Denver's Peyton Manning.

"He'll never stare down a receiver and throw it straight to him," New England cornerback Aqib Talib said. "He's going to look you off on screens and everything. He's going to do a great job with his eyes."

Brees has 12 touchdowns and four interceptions this season, guiding the Saints to their first 5-0 start since 2009.

New England has only defeated one team - the New York Jets (3-2) - with a winning record.
