Braves rightfielder David Justice yesterday ripped Cleveland righthander Orel Hershiser and Atlanta's title-hungry fans. The rightfielder took exception to Hershiser's published feelings about the Braves having more pressure and talked about how another Series loss could result in the local loyalists "trying to burn our homes down. " Justice's remarks began without prodding as he offered a challenge to Hershiser, inviting him to take a swing at him. He was simmering over these words the pitcher used after beating the Braves, 5-4, on Thursday, tightening the Series to 3-2: "I think the pressure is on them because they definitely have something to lose, and they lost the last two World Series they've participated in. The Atlanta fans probably wonder what's going on. " Countered Justice, using a more colorful verb than allowed by good taste: "For Orel to say there's more pressure on us . . . bleep Orel.

ATLANTA - Drew Brees lost twice Thursday night. He and the New Orleans Saints fell, 23-13 to the red-hot Falcons (11-1), and the star quarterback saw the end of his NFL record streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass. He had thrown a TD in 54 straight games, but was plagued Thursday night by five interceptions to an Atlanta team that was motivated by four straight losses in their NFC South rivalry with New Orleans. In the loss, Brees finished 28-for-50 for 341 yards as the Saints fell to 5-7. His Falcons counterpart, Matt Ryan, was 18 for 33 for 165 yards and one touchdown pass, a 17-yard pass to tight end Tony Gonzalez early in the second quarter.

NEW ORLEANS - The Atlanta Falcons can forget about perfection, thanks to their resurgent rivals from the City that Care Forgot. Of all the teams to end Atlanta's unbeaten run, it had to be the New Orleans Saints. And it had to be a memorable, drama-filled game that left the Falcons frustrated by the 1 meager yard they could not get to take a lead inside the final 2 minutes of a 31-27 loss Sunday. "It's very frustrating," said Falcons coach Mike Smith, who is 2-7 against the Saints and 49-15 against the rest of the NFL in his four-plus regular seasons as Atlanta coach.
