Saints Get Offensive Again in Big 48-22 Win in Philadelphia


Three more TD passes and another big day passing for Drew Brees was enough for the Saints, as they are now 2-0 following a big road win in Philly, topping the Eagles 48-22. That’s 9 TD’s in two games for Brees, and once again they did it in bunches, putting up 31 second half points.

The Saints scored right away with a Brees to Marques Colston TD from 15 yards out to make it 7-0. The Eagles came right back, as Kevin Kolb hit DeSean Jackson for a 71-yard TD to make it 7-7 at the 9:03 mark of the first quarter. Things slowed down, as John Carnet hit a 22-yard field goal to make 10-7 in the first quarter, and then David Akers kicked a field goal to make it 10-10 with 2:38 left in the first half.

Brees though got the team down the field fast, and hit Colston for a 25-yard TD to make it 17-10 with :43 seconds left in the 2nd quarter. But, just like that Kolb got the Eagles down the field and they got a field goal to make it 17-13 in an exciting first half.

The Saints though made some moves at the half, as they came out in the third quarter and lit it up, torching the Eagles defense. First Brees hit Heath Evans for an 11-yard score to make it 24-13. Then Mike Bell two minutes later went in from 7 yards out to make it 31-13. Carney it a 25-yard field goal to make it 34-13. The Eagles did come back as Kolb got it to Jason Avant for a three-yard TD to make it 34-20 heading into the 4th quarter.

Again though, the Saints kept up throwing and allowing the offense to make plays, instead of just trying to play not to lose. They scored two more TD’s in the 4th quarter, as Reggie Bush went in from 19 yards out, then Darren Sharper put the nail in the coffin with a 97-yard pickoff return to close it out at 48-22.

The offense put up 421 yards, 23 first downs, and a total of 6.3 yards per play. There’s not a doubt this is a team with a ton of firepower, and without Donovan McNabb, the Eagles were simply outmanned, not like they would have won with him here.

Next week is another interesting road test, as the team will go to Buffalo to play the Bills.

    WOW…the Saints showed up last Sunday to defeat the Eagles 48-24 in Philadelphia. The whole team along with the coaches did a great job game planning and the players a superb demonstration of executing it out on the McNabb-less Eagles. Among the Saints were the Stars that shined bright last Sunday…
