Payton, Saints ready for opener against Falcons

(Continued)

NEW ORLEANS — YOUNG SECONDARY

     Falcons first-round pick Desmond Trufant is set to start at cornerback, while another rookie cornerback, Robert Alford, will see significant action on passing downs. All they have to do is not get fooled by Brees, who threw for league highs of 5,177 yards and 43 TDs last season.

    "I've been watching him for years, dominating the game. Now I'm in the heat of the battle," Trufant said. "He's going to complete some passes. I can't expect to win every single battle."
