METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints are a fitting opponent for the last regular-season game in the Georgia Dome on Sunday.

Other than the Atlanta Falcons themselves, no team has won more games in the 25-year history of the building than the Saints (13-11).

The Saints are 7-3 in the Georgia Dome since Drew Brees and Sean Payton arrived in 2006. And when asked for his memories of the place, Brees immediately thought back to his first game there with the Saints -- a 31-13 victory.

“I can remember in 2006, Terrance Copper catching a Hail Mary,” Brees said. “The first pass of the game we threw an 80-yard post to Devery Henderson for a touchdown (actually 76 yards), and then at the end of that half threw a Hail Mary and Terrance Copper caught a tip pass in the back of the end zone. And we basically, like literally, took it right out of the tunnel and into our locker room.

“We’ve played there on Monday night a couple times. We’ve obviously played in a lot of big games there, because this is obviously a big divisional rivalry. Atlanta’s always been a very good team, especially since Matt Ryan's been there, and obviously they’re having another great year.”
