<st1:city><st1>NEW ORLEANS</st1></st1:city> — The New Orleans Saints passing game had a little bit of everything in a 31-16 loss to<st1:city><st1> Cincinnati</st1></st1:city> on Sunday in the Superdome.
<o></o>
Drew Brees passed for a team-record 510 yards, sixth-most in NFL history, despite losing leading receiver Marques Colston to an ankle injury early in the first quarter.<o>

</o>Devery Henderson picked up the slack caused by Colston’s absence by accumulating a career-high 169 receiving yards, but also dropped two passes.<o></o>

The passing game contributed all four of the Saints’ fatal turnovers, three interceptions by Brees and a fumble by wide receiver Terrance Copper.
<o></o>
Eight Saints caught at least one pass from Brees, who completed 37-of-52, but Copper, Horn and running back Deuce McAllister each had a drop.
