NEW ORLEANS -- The fortunes of the Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints have changed considerably in little more than a month, making their midseason meeting in the Superdome on Sunday all the more compelling.The defending champion Broncos (6-3) have dropped three of five and fallen out of first place in the AFC West since breaking out to a 4-0 start. The New Orleans Saints (4-4) have won four of five and climbed into second place in the NFC South since starting 0-3.I do not care what our record is. I do not care what their record is, Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. There is a reason that they are defending Super Bowl champs. ... This will be the best team that we have played thus far.The 37-year-old Brees , energized by a thriving, young receiver corps, has New Orleans atop the NFL in passing, averaging 324.6 yards per game. Denver boasts the leagues best pass defense, allowing a mere 183.3 yards per game. Those rankings make this matchup intriguing, but what makes the Saints a credible threat to Denver is the way theyve run the ball lately -- and the fact Denvers run defense ranks among the NFLs worst, at 29th.Last week, New Orleans racked up a whopping 248 yards rushing, with Mark Ingram gaining 158 yards and Tim Hightower 87.For Denvers coaching staff, trying to anticipate how Brees and the Saints offense might choose to attack this week is a tall order.Right now, when you watch them play, from a receivers standpoint, everybodys making plays. They have two tight ends going and the last two weeks the running games been going with two different backs, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. When youre getting ready to play people and looking at where the balls going and those types of things, its hard to zero in on anything because theyre so consistent and so unified throughout, because of everybody contributing and knowing whats going on.Some other things to know about the Broncos visit to New Orleans:MILLERS RUSHING: Denvers secondary has been banged-up recently, putting more pressure on Broncos pass rushers to make opposing quarterbacks uncomfortable. Thats where outside linebacker Von Miller comes in. Nine games into the season, Miller is averaging slightly better than a sack per game with 9+. Saints coach Sean Payton said Miller clearly is the best pass rusher in the NFL.He wins with speed. He wins with power. His get-off is outstanding, Payton said. He plays with leverage so he can convert speed and all of a sudden be underneath and pushing you back into the pocket. He plays the run well, hes a fantastic player.AIR TIME: Miller is feeling as much urgency to pressure Brees as any quarterback he has, or will, play against all season. He knows that giving the Saints record-setting QB too much time to throw is a sure recipe for a miserable afternoon. Brees has already passed for more than 300 yards in a game five times this season, and more than 400 yards twice.Drews the best passer in the league right now, Miller said. I mean, hes leading the league in passing yards and its not the first time he has done it, either.LEARNING CURVE: Denver rookie QB Trevor Siemian has hit a rough patch lately, completing fewer than half of his passes in last weeks loss to Oakland. But Denvers struggles on the ground havent helped, either. The Broncos have rushed for fewer than 100 yards in six of seven games, and just 33 yards last week .Were all a little frustrated, Siemian said. Guys are working hard and were not seeing it pay off on Sundays like we want it to, but we all have the right mentality and were going about things the right way.LIMITED LIABILITY: Currently, the Saints rank 30th in yards allowed per game (408.5) and points allowed per game (29.8). Theyre also last in yards passing allowed per game (300). However, the Saints defense has not allowed more than 23 points in any of New Orleans past three games. Two of New Orleans opponents in that stretch, Kansas City and Seattle, each scored defensive touchdowns. The unit is also getting healthier. Top cornerback Delvin Breaux and defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, the clubs top draft choice last spring, returned from injuries last week.FAMILIAR SURROUNDINGS: Denvers defensive backfield includes two players, cornerbacks Lorenzo Doss and Taurean Nixon, from south Louisiana who played college football for Tulane in New Orleans. Kubiak called the pair, two good young players that this organizations counting on in the future.Obviously theyve been a big part of what weve been doing lately because weve had some secondary issues with Aqib (Talib) and Kayvon (Webster) being out, Kubiak noted. So, theyre two good kids who work their tails off, both very bright and just working hard for their opportunity.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Hydro Flask 32 Oz Black . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players.

Current Italy coach Conte was officially confirmed as the Blues new permanent head coach on a three-year deal on Monday and will take up the reins following the conclusion of the 2016 European Championship in France this summer.Chelsea flirted with the relegation zone this season following a disastrous start to their Premier League title defence, before Guus Hiddink steadied the ship following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho in November. Conte won three Serie A titles with Juventus before resigning in 2014 and Wilkins believes similar domestic dominance is required at Chelsea. Chelsea appoint Conte Chelsea have confirmed Antonio Conte will become their new permanent head coach after Euro 2016... He is very keen on the European scene, Mr Abramovich, but they have to compete in the Premier League as well, Wilkins told Sky Sports News HQ. To win your own title is vitally important for a club like Chelsea and domestically, you have to get your house in order. Its your bread and butter football, the Premier League, and thats the one we all want to win. Its all OK winning the Champions League, but they have to get back on a sure footing. Will Conte fit? What should we expect from the new Chelsea boss? He has done exceptionally well at Juventus, so there is no reason why he couldnt do very well at Chelsea.dddddddddddd He is a youthful, energetic character and I am sure he will do a good job.This year they (Chelsea) have had a bit of a torrid time and it has not been pleasant to watch, but Antonio comes in with a clean sheet behind him. He did a fantastic job with Juventus and did create a fortress there. He changed different systems there, he went three at the back for a long period and they were very successful. So, it will be very interesting to see how he goes.Wilkins also believes Conte may look to keep Chelsea captain John Terry at the club next season. Terry is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and is yet to be offered a new deal to remain with Chelsea. John Terry is an exceptional player and he will be for the next couple of years, whether he is at Chelsea or elsewhere and I think Antonio will want to use his experience, picking his brains a touch as to what he is actually coming into, Wilkins added.
