The New Orleans Saints controlled the second quarter with 21 points, eventually defeating the AFC East leading New England Patriots 38-27 Monday night at the Superdome. Drew Brees took advantage of the Pats young secondary, throwing for five TD’s and 371 yards from 18 total completions. New Orleans franchise QB was certainly excited to win over Bill Belichick and the historically dominant New England organization, saying “It only counts for one win on the stat sheet, but emotionally, those types of wins can mean a little more. Anytime you can win, and win that way, it builds confidence for you.”
The Patriots in their last three contests have suffered two losses to the two remaining undefeated teams this season. Many believed the Patriots outplayed the Colts at Indy two weeks ago despite walking away without a victory. It was clear who the better team was yesterday by the start of the fourth quarter when fans were yelling “Who dat say they gonna beat them Saints?”
“There’s obviously a big gap between us. It wasn’t nearly as competitive as we all were expecting,” said QB Tom Brady. “There’s a reason why they are 11-0. They played really well and we didn’t play up to their level.” New England will now move on to prepare for their next game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, December 6th at Land Shark Stadium. The Pats are currently in good shape to claim a playoff spot, but it looks as though they’ll have to take their campaign on the road come January.
