Final Score: New Orleans 31, Tampa Bay 14
Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Drew Brees threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 31-14 beating of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
Brees completed 24 of his 32 passes without throwing an interception for the Saints (6-2), who rebounded from last week's 13-point loss to Baltimore. Brees has won three straight over Tampa Bay.
Standout wide receiver Joe Horn missed the game with a groin injury, but rookie Marques Colston and Devery Henderson stepped in nicely in his absence, each posting 100-yard games. Colston finished with 123 yards on 11 catches and a score while Henderson caught three for 111 yards and two touchdowns.
Deuce McAllister ran for just 32 yards on 15 carries, but also scored in the win. Reggie Bush, though, had his worst game of the season on the ground with minus-five yards on 11 carries.
