Lions vs. Saints: 5 Things We Learned in New Orleans' 45-28 Win

I think the picture above says all that needs to be said about the Saints' Saturday night win against the Lions.

New Orleans just wrapped up a 45-28 victory over the Detroit Lions and will travel to play the San Francisco 49ers next week.

The Saints looked about as bad as they have looked all year in the first half, but they came out firing on all cylinders in the second half. The Saints look like a near unbeatable team right now.

New Orleans finished Saturday night with 626 total yards, with 167 on the ground and 459 yards through the air. Drew Brees and the Saints offense hit the Lions from every possible vantage point and the Lions collapsed in the second half.

The New Orleans defense came out in the second half and played like a totally different team. They forced some pressure and got two interceptions to really turn the game around.

There is a lot that we can take away from this game, but let's focus on five things that really stuck out in the Saints' 45-28 victory.
