Saints' Brees on pace for 5 billion yards

NEW ORLEANS -- There has been no contest early on between New Orleans' passing offense and Green Bay's pass defense.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees has thrown for 107 yards on the past two drives, both of which ended in touchdowns. He caught the Packers in a coverage switch to get Lance Moore a 70-yard touchdown reception, and he completed four consecutive passes prior to Pierre Thomas' four-yard touchdown run.

The Packers have blitzed twice that I've seen, sending cornerback Charles Woodson and linebacker Brandon Chillar, but Brees has had plenty of time to find open receivers.
