Roundup: Saints picture perfect in vanquishing Giants

Lost in the nostalgia of Giants QB Eli Manning playing a game in his hometown of New Orleans is the fact that the Saints actually have a pretty good football team. QB Drew Brees and the Saints presented their case to be considered the top team in the NFC with a severe pounding of the Giants.

Times Picayune columnist Peter Finney said that the Saints’ performance on Sunday was a masterpiece by Brees and coach Sean Payton. A true work of art.

    The Saints rolled up 493 yards, 369 of which belonged to quarterback/artist Brees, as he joined coach/artist Payton in one of the most impressive Sundays in the history of the franchise.
  • NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was in New Orleans for the game. Goodell is encouraged about the rebirth of the city which he said is coming back stronger than before.
  • The Chargers hope to salvage their season against the Broncos. San Diego staged a furious rally in the final weeks of the 2008 season to win the AFC West. But the Chargers need to win Monday to keep pace with the Broncos, who are off to a perfect start.
  • The Broncos are doing things the unconventional way. The team dumped a coach that had 14 years with the team and two Super Bowl rings to go with a hot-shot, 30-something coach. But it is paying off.
