Drew Brees faces a stiff test on Sunday as the New Orleans Saints attempt to continue their charge toward playoff contention when they host the defending Super Bowl-champion Denver Broncos. Brees leads the NFL with an average of 336.1 passing yards after throwing for 323 and three touchdowns in last week’s 41-23 victory at San Francisco, but will be facing the league’s top-ranked pass defense as New Orleans seeks its third consecutive victory and fifth in six games.

While Denver is yielding a league-low 183.3 passing yards per contest, its own aerial attack is not faring well, as Trevor Siemian is completing only 59.8 percent of his attempts and has thrown for just 10 touchdowns, tying him for 16th in the league, with five interceptions. He has performed well on the road, however, recording eight TDs while being picked off only once in four contests. Devontae Booker has rushed for a touchdown in two of his last three games and ranks third among NFL rookies with 320 yards on the ground

Brees continues to etch his name in the record book after recording his 55th career game with at least 300 passing yards and three touchdowns – the most in history – and became the first player to register 30 performances of 300 yards, three TDs and no interceptions. The 37-year-old is one scoring pass away from joining Peyton Manning (539) and Brett Favre (508) as the only quarterbacks to throw for 450 in their careers. Mark Ingram is coming off a 158-yard rushing effort that included a career-best 75-yard touchdown run, which also was the second-longest in franchise history.

Broncos CB Kayvon Webster, who missed last week’s game with a hamstring injury, has participated in practice and could be in the lineup against the Saints.

New Orleans WR Brandin Cooks has recorded 10 touchdown receptions in his last nine home games.

 Denver has gone without a first down in 25 of its last 51 possessions.
