Giants 24 @ Saints 49: Monday Night Beatdown in the Big Easy

New, comments

How bout dem Saints! They took it to the New York Giants in a beautifully overpowering offensive showing on Monday Night Football to get to 8-3 on the season.

The game got so out of hand that the idiots in the booth (Gruden, Tirico, and Jaworski) were literally looking into the pockets of their coats during the second half to try and find some notes on something to talk about. Heck, they were even playing with crutches just like Sean Payton's in the fourth quarter.

Drew Brees was masterful, and Jimmy Graham, Darren Sproles, Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, Marques Colston, and Pierre Thomas all chipped in significantly to this explosion of offense.

On defense, they gave up significant yards, but made enough stops to deny points when it counted, and they snatched two takeaways (fumble, INT) while causing three other fumbles that they couldn't corral.

All in all, a sweet, sweet win. Let's count and discuss the ways below...
