Colts 7 @ Saints 62: Saints Score Franchise Record in Win Over Indianapolis

Even if the score doesn't show it, this game wasn't even close. From the very beginning, the Saints just dominated this game and proved themselves as a dominant team in the NFC. Drew Brees had a performance that no one will ever forget. The running game was dominant. The defense got stops and turnovers. While Special Teams got tackles and made decent returns.

This was a game that goes down as a classic like the 2009 MNF Patriots game. It won't be a good game for 31 NFL fanbases, but for Saints fans, this was a wonderful game that will be remember forever. If you want more proof that the football "gods" are back on the Saints bandwagon like in 2009, here it is. Just like in the Patriots game, the Saints did everything right, and very little wrong.

However, to be the "turd in the punch bowl" so to speak, this is a poor Colts team. It will likely compete with the Miami Dolphins for the #1 overall pick. So to draw too much conclusions from this, would be unwise. However, if you would allow me, I will draw the conclusion that this is still a good Saints team especially on offense, led by one of the best quarterbacks of this generation.

Enjoy this win Whodats! As well, the Saints are back in first place, so enjoy that too. Make the jump for your post game thread, and some post game stats.
