The Saints’ passing game was just too much for the Bills on Sunday.

Quarterback Drew Brees threw five TD passes as New Orleans scored a 35-17 victory against visiting Buffalo on Sunday.

Rookie wide receiver Kenny Stills hauled in TD receptions of 69 and 42 yards for the Saints, who trailed 10-7 in the second quarter before asserting control and pulling away from the underdog Bills.

The five-TD game was Brees’ first since 2011, when he had three separate games with five TD passes. He completed 26-of-34 passes for 332 yards.

Tight end Jimmy Graham also caught a pair of touchdowns in victory for New Orleans (6-1), which leads the NFC South by two games over Carolina (4-3).

Bills quarterback Thad Lewis threw for 234 yards and a touchdown for Buffalo, which fell to 3-5. Lewis committed three turnovers in the loss.

The Saints’ defense again had a strong game, allowing just 299 yards on 68 plays. However, the big story was Brees’ big day.

  1. Dree Bree’s Week 8 performance will be the quarterback performance that PFT and other sports media (… and fans) use to diminish Andy Dalton’s performance.


  2. Nobody realistically thought that Buffalo was better than New Orleans, but the Bills put up a great fight and showed a lot of heart. With a practice squad QB, a gimpy Fred Jackson, and a patchwork secondary, the Bills still looked impressive.

  3. I cant believe a panther fans talking smack…not much better better than the other 2 jokes in this division…SIT DOWN BRO

  4. Really , panthers fans really think they got this? Who did y’all fall victim to in week 2? Oh yeah , the team who just lost to the saints today. And by the way, nobody beat the bills this year the way the saints did.

  5. Remember those Buffalo fans that we’re talking about the bills having a chance to beat the Saints?

    That was cute huh.

  6. Ohh 4thqtraint that’s so cute! We can’t help who we play, but aslong as we win that’s all that matters. Lil Drew will play his worse when he plays us. No one is more hungry than the panthers, he hasn’t seen no pressure like we can put on him. So eat your crawl dads and wear your beads and enjoy tonight’s win, but it will come to a end soon

  7. Was happy the Bills showed some effort. Never thought they had a chance in this game so I was also happy they rested Spiller. Next week is a big game if they can somehow pull it out, the schedule gets a little easier, can’t wait for the Jets rematch in Buffalo.

  8. I’ve got nothing against the Panthers, but Carolinadude, you’ve got no argument. Your team lost 24 to 23 to the Bills and their “fake defense” who was missing 3 starting members of their seondary, while your “real defense” gave up an 80 yard td drive in under 2 mins with no timeouts to a rookie QB playing his second game.

    Carolina has the 9ers, Pats, Falcons and Fins in their way before theyy play Nola. Maybe you should worry about that before you even think about Nola.

  9. Facts: Saints: 6-1, No. 5 offense, No. 11 defense
    (one loss against the Patriots at home)
    Panthers: 4-3, No. 22 offense, No. 3 defense
    (wins against Giants, Vikings, Rams and Bucs)

    We got this.

    WHO DAT?

    BTW, when was the last time that the Carolina Panthers really brought the pain?

    Crickets …

  10. What in the world is “Crawl Dads” must be some new creature found in the hills of Carolina. Is that something like a crawfish?? Dude you have to learn to spell and learn the language BEFORE opening your mouth. But then again it just goes to show you how some people let their mouth overload their *ss ole. I will be sure to re-post your comments in the write up after the Dec. 12 game, so you can eat your words.

  11. How can you not mention that this is Drew Brees’ eighth 5 TD game? That is an NFL record. No one else has done this eight times. Not Manning. Not Brady. Not Scam Newton. (That last one was for you, carolinadud.)
