ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons raced to a 17-0 lead, and the defense made it stand up, picking off five of Drew Brees' passes and ending his NFL-record touchdown streak with a 23-13 victory Thursday night. The Falcons (11-1) moved to the brink of clinching the NFC South and dealt a big blow to the Saints (5-7) and their fading playoff hopes. William Moore had two of the five interceptions, which were the most of Brees' career. Brees had thrown a touchdown pass in 54 consecutive games.

ATLANTA - As a part of the ceremonies for Civil Rights Game weekend, the Phillies and Braves will wear throwback uniforms for two consecutive days. On Saturday, the Phillies will wear gray Philadelphia Stars jerseys with navy blue caps to honor the Negro League team. Then on Sunday, it's the powder-blue uniform with maroon hats from 1974. That was the year Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's career home run record. - Matt Gelb

Perhaps you've heard. Barry Bonds has been barely noticeable when it comes to the postseason. He's hitting .196 in 27 playoff games. So the day before Bonds and the San Francisco Giants were to meet Atlanta in Game 1 of their best-of-five series, it was left for Giants manager Dusty Baker to discuss Bonds' history. Bonds wasn't available to reporters. At first, Baker said "not really" when asked if he had any idea why Bonds had flopped in the postseason. The miserable statistics include one home run in 97 at-bats.

ATLANTA - The Falcons sent a message to all the skeptics with a resounding victory Sunday over the defending Super Bowl champions. Matt Ryan threw three touchdowns passes as the defense handed the New York Giants their first regular-season shutout since 1996 in Atlanta's 34-0 win. Julio Jones caught a couple of scoring throws from Ryan, who broke his own franchise records for completions and passing yards in a season. The Penn Charter grad finished 23 of 28 for 270 yards. The Giants, meanwhile, were 0 for 3 on fourth down and missed a short field goal.

THE LEGIONS of Eagles fans who are not sure what to expect out of their defense this weekend are not alone. The Falcons don't have much of an idea, either. "It's a lot like a first game of the year," Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan said. "There will be some similar things to what they've done in the first 6 weeks of the season. I'm sure they will have a wrinkle or two for us; some things that are a little bit different. We'll just have to adjust and adapt to it during the game.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez could not recall which expletive he used Sunday when his No. 1 starter, Kris Medlen, darted from the mound to the clubhouse, then Monday to an MRI tube. There were fears that Medlen, a 28-year-old Tommy John survivor, had suffered another serious injury to his right arm. The Braves harbored faint optimism Monday as they prepared for a Grapefruit League game against their rival Phillies. Gonzalez coped with six words. "Thank God we signed Freddy Garcia," he said.

Curt Schilling, the National League championship series MVP, will start Game 1 of the World Series tomorrow in Toronto, and lefthander Terry Mulholland will follow him in the Phillies' pitching rotation, manager Jim Fregosi said yesterday. Schilling got the first start "because he earned it in the playoffs," Fregosi said. Mulholland will follow him "because he's ready to go. " Danny Jackson will start the third game, and Tommy Greene, whose win over Atlanta on Wednesday night clinched the National League pennant, will start Game 4. Schilling pitched on Monday in Atlanta, striking out nine.

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons wanted to make a statement. Boy, did they deliver one Sunday to the defending Super Bowl champions. Coming off an ugly loss and criticized for failing to impress even when they won, the Falcons turned in their most well-rounded performance of the season with the playoffs approaching. Matt Ryan threw three TD passes and the defense handed New York its first regular-season shutout since 1996, routing the Giants, 34-0. "We love the haters, man," said Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel, who had the first of two interceptions against Eli Manning.
