This past week people were asking would the Jets be able to keep up with New Orleans high power offense. They were also asking if New Orleans was going to be outmatched by the Jets defense.

New Orleans won the game with pure defense. Sharper intercepted rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez twice. Sharper also got his second pick six of the season and the tenth of his career. Sharpers pick six for 99 yards became a franchise record.

Will Smith also had a strip/sack in the Jets end zone which was recovered by the Saints for a touchdown. New Orleans defense caused the score before half-time to become 17-3.

Drew Brees was held without a touchdown again for the second week in a row. Brees tho did cause New Orleans to have to recover from any mistakes. He managed the game like the perfectionist he is.

The Saints rushing attack again has rushed for over 100 yards with combined efforts from Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas. Thomas scored the teams only offensive touchdown in the fourth quarter.

As Who-Dat-Nations awaits the trip from the Giants lead by a great Saints son,fans can only wonder is there magic in the dome?
