Let’s step beyond the obvious -- implications on the NFC South race, home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and bragging rights -- and look at five more reasons the "Monday Night Football" game between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons is huge.

1. Drew Brees’ legacy. He had a truly magical season in 2009 as he led the Saints to the first Super Bowl championship in franchise history.

He’s thrown a career-high 19 interceptions and, for much of the season, has looked just a little off on many of his throws. A loss to the Falcons and/or a quick exit from the playoffs could resume all the “curse’’ talk that started before the season when Brees showed up on the cover of the Madden video game. A win against the Falcons could put Brees back on the sort of magical roll that carried the Saints through last season’s playoffs.
