Drew Brees' TD run in OT lifts Saints past Falcons 43-37

ATLANTA (AP) On the day he became the NFL's career leader in completed passes, Drew Brees' biggest plays came as a runner.

Brees' 1-yard run capped an 80-yard touchdown drive to open overtime that lifted the New Orleans Saints to a 43-37 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

That came after his 7-yard score late in the fourth quarter forced the overtime. After the Saints won the coin toss, Brees and the Saints held the ball for more than seven minutes.
