NEW ORLEANS -- Devonta Freeman practically wore out the Superdome turf with one long gain after another, Tevin Coleman wouldnt be denied near the goal line and the New Orleans Saints hardly looked like the team that made an emotional homecoming nearly 10 years ago to the day.Cheers turned to boos, and many fans filed out early.Coleman rushed for three touchdowns, Matt Ryan passed for two TDs and Deion Jones returned an interception 90 yards for a score to help the Atlanta Falcons beat the winless New Orleans Saints 45-32 on Monday night.It was real fun. Everybody was doing their job and everybody was playing for each other, Coleman said. Everything clicked, and we got it done. Its a real big win for us to beat this team here.The game coincided with New Orleans celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the Saints memorable return to the Superdome on Sept. 25, 2006, 13 months after Hurricane Katrina. But there would be no reprise of New Orleans dominant and emotional 23-3 triumph over Atlanta a decade ago.The Saints depleted defense struggled to slow Freeman, who rushed for 152 yards and caught five passes for 55 yards. Coleman also was effective in the passing game out of the backfield, with three receptions for 47 yards to go with his 42 yards rushing.We have to stop the run better, Saints coach Sean Payton said. They were over 200 yards in situations where you knew the run was coming, even at the end of the game.Ryan finished with 240 yards passing for Atlanta (2-1), which did not turn the ball over and moved into sole possession of first place in the NFC South.Drew Brees put up his usual big numbers -- 376 yards and three TDs passing -- and hit tight end Coby Fleener seven times for 109 yards and a TD. But Brees tipped pass that resulted in Jones TD return early in the fourth quarter gave the Falcons a 45-25 lead that proved too much for New Orleans to overcome.The loss dropped the Saints (0-3) to last place -- a far cry from their 3-0 start in 2006.JONES RETURNJones had NOLA written on his cleats as a nod to his hometown of New Orleans. The rookie was only 11 when the dome re-opened after Katrina. He wound up with a pivotal scoring play in his first pro game there.It was a great moment for Deion Jones, right here back at home, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. That was very personal to him.SPECIAL TEAMS BLUNDERA cruel irony for the Saints was the way they lost the early momentum on -- of all plays -- a Falcons punt. A decade earlier, the Saints seized the early momentum on Steve Gleasons punt block that was recovered for a touchdown.On Monday night, New Orleans had raced to a 7-0 lead and forced a punt on a sack, only to turn the ball over when punt returner Tommylee Lewis was run into by teammate DeVante Harris. After the collision knocked Lewis to the ground, the ball came down right near him. As it bounced up, Harris tried to grab it, but it bounced away from him. It was recovered by Atlanta on the 11, setting up Colemans first TD.Its a terrible play, Payton said, citing Harris specifically. Theres two mistakes -- runs into the returner and then tries to pick the ball up. Its bad.HAMPERED JULIOAtlanta star Julio Jones played despite missing a couple practices during the week because of a sore calf. He did not make his first catch until the second half, on the sixth pass of the game intended for him. That play went for 16 yards and was his only catch.RUNNING WILDThe Falcons gouged New Orleans porous defense for 217 yards on the ground, highlighted by runs of 48, 36 and 26 yards by Freeman. That took a lot of pressure off Ryan, who praised his offensive line.Our offensive line was outstanding across the board, Ryan said. Anytime you get over 200 rushing yards, your offensive line has played well. Those guys did great.INJURY REPORTFalcons: Receiver Mohammed Sanu left with a shoulder injury and did not return.Saints: Guard Senio Kelemete left with a right leg injury.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Coach Mike Brey isnt discouraging Notre Dame players from trying to get past the NCAA Tournament regional finals after back-to-back appearances. He just knows how difficult it will be.The Irish have won a program-best 56 games the past two seasons. They were led by Jerian Grant and Pat Connaughton two years ago when they won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and finished 32-6. Last season, Demetrius Jackson and Zach Auguste led Notre Dame to a 24-12 record.And this year?Youve got to get access to the thing before you can have fun in March like weve had the last two years, and it will be harder for us to get a bid this year than it was the previous two years given what weve lost, Brey said.The Irish will be led by a pair of seniors, 6-foot-8 forward V.J. Beachem and 6-6 shooting guard Steve Vasturia. The rest of the starting lineup will be 6-5 forward Bonzie Colson, 6-10 forward Martin Geben and 6-1 point guard Matt Farrell, all juniors.We still have a lot of guys back that have won together and have won at a high level, Brey said. We have a heck of a lot to work with and were still old. Get old and stay old has kind of been a theme around here. So weve still got experience.Other things to watch for Notre Dame:SENIOR MOMENTS: The Irish will depend heavily on Beachem, who was third on the team in scoring, averaging 12 points and 3.9 rebounds, and was at his best in the NCAA Tournament, averaging 17.5 points. Vasturia, who was fourth in scoring at 11.4 points, struggled in the NCAA Tournament, making just 29 percent of his shots and averaging 7.8 points.To get Vasturia and Beachem open, thats the No. 1 role of these big guys on the offensive end, Brey said.Beachem said he wants to be a better defennder and rebounder and drive more to the basket.ddddddddddddI just need to build off the confidence I had in March and keeping it rolling, Beachem said.JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT: Notre Dame has a history of players stepping up as juniors. Beachem became the latest to do it last season when he nearly doubled his scoring after averaging 6.4 points as a sophomore. Auguste, Tim Abromaitis, Rob Kurz and Tyrone Nash made similar jumps. Brey is hoping Geben can become a solid contributor after playing in only 16 games last season, averaging 1.4 points and 0.9 rebounds.Martin is a key for us. We need him to have one of those junior years that weve had around here, Brey said.NEW ASSISTANTS: Brey added two former Irish players as assistants: Ryan Ayers, a captain on the 2008-09 team that finished 21-15, and Ryan Humphrey, a member of Breys first team in 2000-01 and helped the Irish earn their first NCAA Tournament berth in 11 seasons.ROTATION: Brey doesnt usually go past an eight-man rotation, but heads into this season thinking nine players can contribute regularly.Can we do that the whole year? Probably not. But we have to keep all those guys really alive, he said.SCHEDULE: The Irish, who play 18 ACC games, face Colorado, Iowa, Purdue, Villanova and either Texas or Northwestern on their non-conference schedule. Brey said there are plenty of chances to build a good resume.Were going to take big punches, he said. Can we be stable -- which we have been -- be resilient, pick off a few? Sometimes it only takes a week. Last year it took a week. It was (North) Carolina, Clemson and Louisville. Game over. Were in.
