New Orleans Eye Atlanta Falcons After Saints Top Tampa Bay Bucs
Written by 

The New Orleans Saints rebounded from a dismal loss at the hands of the St. Louis Rams by beating their division rivals, Tampa Bay Buccanneers 27-16 Sunday in the Mercedes Benz Superdome. 

 The Saints used a powerful mix of running by Chris Ivory, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles along with the precision-passing by Drew Brees to improve their standings to 6-3.  The loss by Tampa Bay brought their record to 4-4.

QB Drew Brees threw for two touchdowns.  RB Pierre Thomas had a 9-yard TD run and John Kasay hit on two field goals while missing one.  Another touchdown by Darren Sproles was called back due to a penalty.

The Saints led the Bucs 17-3 at the half.  

For most of teh game, the Saints were without the services of their DB Tracy Porter who suffered a neck injury after a jolting tackle of receiver Mike Williams. After a long game-delay, Porter was carted off the field.   and gave a thumbs up on his way out as the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

New Orleans plays their division rival, the Atlanta Falcons, next week before enjoying its bye week.
