The New Orleans Saints had no trouble dispatching the Oakland Raiders in Week 11, winning by a score of 38-17.

Drew Brees barely had to break a sweat, completing 20-of-27 passes for 219 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

Lance Moore caught two passes on the day—both for touchdowns.

Jimmy Graham also pitched in a touchdown, and the passing attack was supplemented by a potent rushing game. In total, the Saints rushed for 153 yards on 28 carries, and Mark Ingram led the attack with 67 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries. 

Carson Palmer threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns, but his two interceptions hurt the Raiders—one of which was returned by Malcolm Jenkins for a touchdown—especially considering the Saints didn't turn the ball over once.

One bright spot for the Raiders was Marcel Reece, who ran for 103 yards and caught four passes for 90 yards. 

The Saints improved to 5-5 on the season and will host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, while the Raiders fell to 3-7 and will travel to face the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday.
