PASSING OFFENSE
A-plus -- Drew Brees continued his hot streak in going 21-of-30 for 349 yards and touchdowns of 76 and 48 yards. Brees was sacked twice, but he wasn't intercepted and averaged a whopping 10.4 yards per pass attempt. He had a passer rating of 131.1. Devery Henderson, who caught a 76-yard TD on the game's third play, averaged 39.5 yards on four catches and Joe Horn averaged 20.3 yards on three receptions for 61 yards. Terrance Copper had only one reception, but it was a 48-yard Hail Mary grab on the final play of the first half to give the Saints a 21-6 lead.

RUSHING OFFENSE
C -- The Saints didn't have a great day, but it looked a lot better than it has been lately. They offensive line opened up some holes for Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush and the Saints had 95 yards and a 3.8 average on 25 carries. But they were productive yards as McAllister had a 30-yard run to start their second possession, which he capped with a 1-yard scoring run. He added a nine-yard TD run late in the game and finished with 71 yards on 20 carries.
