I think QB Aaron Brooks tried to do too much to counter his quarterback cousin, Michael Vick. Brooks didn't stay in the pocket as comfortably as he has in recent weeks. He moved around too much and tried to do too much with his legs.
Question on the Falcons: What has been most impressive about Vick so far this season?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Trevor Gaylor (81) had three catches for 100 yards and also tackled Ken Irvin after this interception.
Gaylor started in place of WR Shawn Jefferson, who missed only the second game of his career because of a foot injury. Jefferson had a streak of 103 consecutive games. ... The Falcons have won 13 of the last 16 meetings between the division foes. ... A scary moment for the Saints: CB Fred Thomas was knocked out when he took a knee to the head making a tackle on Crumpler. Thomas was motionless on the turf for several minutes, but was able to run off.
