The National Football League went across the pond to Britain this week with the hopes of more scoring than last year's game in the mud. The Saints and Bolts did not disappoint the English fans.
The New Orleans Saints defeated the San Diego Chargers Sunday afternoon 37-32 at Wembly Stadium in London. The two highly potent offenses put on a show as the two teams combined for 860 yards of total offense and 69 points.
After 23 points were scored by the Giants and Dolphins combined, San Diego and New Orleans put up 34 combined in the second quarter alone. Drew Brees threw 339 yards and three touchdowns on 30/41 passing and the Bolts' Philip Rivers tossed for 341 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
The Saints led 37-20 with ten minutes to go in regulation before San Diego scored 12 unanswered points to close the game and leave the fans pleased with a great contest. The Saint go to 4-3 on the year and the Bolts drop to 3-5.
