And I quote every Saints fan who watched the game, "Now, this is more like it."
Drew Brees was slinging away, Jimmy Graham was getting open and snagging the ball, Darren Sproles was juking his way into the end zone and the offensive line was pushing the defense off the ball.
The Saints finally showed the balance that fans have been waiting to see, as Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas were running the ball physically and combined for over 100 yards rushing.
It was great to see the holes the big guys up front created, and this allowed Brees' patented play-actions to work like a charm.
Brees had an interception, but other than that, he was great throughout the game. And as for Sproles, well, he's staking a claim each and every week that he's the most exciting football player to watch. At this point, the Saints are just getting him the football and getting out of his way.
If the offense can keep this balanced attack up, very few teams in the league will be able to stop that freight train.
