After week off, Denver Broncos look ahead to New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees

DENVER - After a week off, the Denver Broncos are looking ahead to their next game against the New Orleans Saints.

Broncos head coach John Fox said that the Saints are a very explosive football team and one of the goals will be to slow down Saints' quarterback Drew Brees,

"Hey, whatever it takes," said Fox. "He’s a great player. We’ll be doing our best to slow him down."

"I've followed Brees for a long time and played against him quite a bit. He’s one of the most accurate quarterbacks in this league," said Broncos linebacker Keith Brooking. "What they're doing now is just playing great as an offense. All 11 guys are holding up on their responsibilities. He's [Brees] playing better than he's played since I've been following him and watching him in this league. Now, they're playing better collectively as a group."

"I think a guy like that, he's always a great quarterback," said defensive end Elvis Dumervil. "You can never take him for granted. He can turn it on at any given point, any series. So we have a big task in front of us. We have to work; we're looking toward the challenge."

Cornerback Tracy Porter said he is better and said it will be weird playing his old team.

"I know a lot of those guys on the team, so I’m going to be excited," Porter said. "But at the end of the day, it's  no different; we still have to line up and play football."

The Broncos play the Saints on Sunday night.
