Drew Brees has said that he looks forward to playing in "big games" on Monday nights.
The New Orleans Saints, who have won their first three games of 2013, will play their first Monday game of the season this week.
The quarterback told reporters: "They are always big games. They are always against very good opponents. They are always very meaningful just from the standpoint of it's in your division or you're playing a very good team or it's the battle of the unbeaten or whatever it might be.
"It seems like there's always been something surrounding that game besides just playing in prime time. And then throw on that element, you're the only game on TV. That's kind of what you live for, that opportunity to showcase your team and your town."
The Saints face the Miami Dolphins on Monday.
