saints385 Saints March To Win

The Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints opened the 2010 NFL season with a 14-9 win over Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night. Playing before a sellout crowd at the Superdome, the Saints got a stout performance from their defense, along with 237 passing yards and a touchdown from quarterback Drew Brees. Brees threw a touchdown pass to Devery Henderson to open the scoring in the first quarter, then Saints running back Pierre Thomas capped a third-quarter drive with a one-yard TD run to put the Saints ahead for good. The Vikings’ only touchdown came in the second quarter on a pass from Favre to tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, which gave Minnesota a 9-7 lead (the extra point attempt was blocked.) Favre extended his NFL record with the 286th consecutive start of his 20-year career as he begins his second season with the Vikings. He finished 15-27 passing for 171 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.

The full NFL season gets underway Sunday, with 12 day games on the slate and the Washington Redskins hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Monday marks the traditional “Monday Night Football” opening doubleheader, with the New York Jets hosting Baltimore, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the San Diego Chargers.
