NEW ORLEANS -- Just in case you’re wondering what formation Drew Brees has been most effective out of this season, it’s the "zebra" formation -- three wide receivers, one tight end and a running back.

Brees has been great out of that formation all season and Monday night against Atlanta was no exception. Thanks to ESPN Stats & Information, we’ve got a breakdown of what Brees did out of the "zebra" on Monday and what he has done in that formation all season:
