Giants Vs. Saints Video Highlights: Drew Brees Shreds New York

The New Orleans Saints are still undefeated at home, while Drew Brees continues to put up absolutely ridiculous stats. They took out the New York Giants by a final score of 49-24 on Monday Night Football, putting on an offensive clinic.

Brees threw for 363 yards and four touchdowns while the Saints used all three of their running backs to great effect. Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles all got in on the action as the Saints also rushed for 205 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 6.8 yards per carry. Here are the video highlights.

 

The Saints offense was probably never going to be stopped by the Giants, but Eli Manning's first quarter interception in the end zone was a back breaker. The Saints scored quickly afterwards, and from then until the end of the game, the Giants were playing a game of catch-up that they had no chance of winning.

Drew Brees Puts Up Big Time Stats Vs. Giants On Monday Night Football

Drew Brees put Madden Stats on the board against the Giants on Monday Night Football with four touchdown passes and 363 total passing yards (not to mention a rushing touchdown). That's ridiculous. But the big picture perspective and historical context is even more ridiculous.

Here's a quick look (with an assist from ESPN Stats & Info) at just how incredible the Saints quarterback is right now.

• On Monday night, Drew Brees became the first player to collect 4 touchdown passes, 350+ passing yards and rushing touchdown on MNF. He also became the the ninth quarterback since 200 to have four passing TDs *and* a rushing TD in one game (Aaron Rodgers also did it this season).

• Brees has thrown a touchdown pass in 38 consecutive games, the second longest streak in NFL history, nine behind Johnny Unitas' record of 47.

• Brees extended his own NFL record, completing 20+ passes in a 31st straight game.

• Brees has amassed 3,689 yards through his first 11 games this season. That's an NFL record through 11 games, breaking Tom Brady's old(-ish) mark of 3,627 from this season.

Add it all up. Drew Brees could be putting together one of the great quarterbacking seasons in NFL history.

Oh, and the man across from Brees on Monday Night -- Eli Manning -- set a record of his own. Manning completed a Giants franchise record 19 consecutive passes. Somehow, it just doesn't compare.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Pierre Thomas Ices Monday Night Football Game With TD

Drew Brees has dominated the Giants all night, but Pierre Thomas might have stuck a fork in New York on Monday Night Football. The Saints running back scored on a 12-yard scamper to cap a 10-play, 80-yard drive that could have put the Giants comeback attempt out of reach. New Orleans leads by a score of 42-17 in the fourth quarter.

Thomas has split carries with Darren Sproles, and the two have collaborated for a strong running attack against New York, amassing more than 100 combined yards. Of course, the Saints offense has had its way with the Giants defense with 529 yards so far and plenty of football left to play.

Here's video of the touchdown run. Watch Thomas bounce outside where he is hardly contested in a race to the edge. Giants fans, avert your eyes.

Giants vs. Saints Score Update: Victor Cruz Catches TD, Cuts Saints Lead

The Giants have life. Eli Manning found wide receiver Victor Cruz for a 72-yard touchdown pass to cut the Saints lead to 35-17 early in the fourth quarter on Monday Night Fooball.

The Saints appeared to have the game in hand, but a blown defensive assignment has pulled the game off life support for the moment.


Perhaps, after struggling on offense all game, the Giants figured out the top secret key to beating the Saints defense: Throw the ball deep, have Cruz catch it and run for a touchdown. If that's the case, this 18-point deficit should just melt away in the fourth quarter.

Then again, the Giants would still have to stop Drew Brees. So far, that's been near impossible to do.

Oh, one more thing. Please watch this Giants mucked up punt attempt. It might have been an intentional fake or maybe not. It *definitely* is very funny.

Giants vs. Saints Score Update: Another Drew Brees TD Makes It 35-10 New Orleans

Drew Brees is trolling Giants fans on Monday Night Football at this point. The Saints quarterback delivered his fourth touchdown pass of the game vs. the Giants to push the score to 35-10 in favor of New Orleans at the end of the third quarter.

Brees found tight end Jimmy Graham for a touchdown, the Saints fourth consecutive drive that ended in a score. Watch how Brees is able to hang in the pocket, step up into the pressure and deliver a strike to Graham, who lays out to nail the pylon and get the score.

Here's video of the the touchdown pass. Watch it. Be in awe.


Brees has made breathtaking throws and inspired gushing commentary from ESPN's TV announcing crew of Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and Ron Jaworski. Brees has thrown for 350 yards after three quarters. If there's a reason to keep watching this Monday Night blowout, it's him.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Drew Brees Rushing TD Puts Saints Up 28-10

The New York Giants scored out of the gate after the halftime on an impressive touchdown run by Brandon Jacobs, where he ran over a New Orleans Saints defender. Drew Brees had an answer for Brandon Jacobs touchdown run however, with a touchdown run of his own.

Brees dropped back to pass and had some pressure, so he rolled out of the pocket and took off for the endzone. Brees looked like he'd get stopped short by a Giants linebacker, but Brees did a little cut step move and froze the linebacker, making his way and diving into the endzone for the score. This was the second impressive play on the night Brees had made using his legs.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Brandon Jacobs TD Run Brings Score To 21-10, Saints

The New York Giants traded the New Orleans Saints 21-3 coming out of halftime, but were quickly able to cut into the lead. The Giants went on an 8-play drive that ended in a Brandon Jacobs touchdown run, where he completely ran over safety Roman Harper on his way to the endzone.

Here's a video of the entire play:

The Giants scoring drive was assisted by a somewhat questionable personal foul call on Saints safety Isa Abdul-Quddus. Abdul-Quddus laid a big hit on Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks as he went over the middle and was flagged for hitting a "defenseless receiver". It looked like a relatively clean hit to me. Nicks had already caught the football, so I guess in order to not be a defenseless receiver, Abdul-Quddus needed to let him land before he tried to knock the ball out? You be the judge:

Brandon Jacobs just couldn't contain himself on his touchdown. He just had to... dance.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Drew Brees Is Going Off, New Orleans Up 21-3 At Half

Drew Brees is turning this Saints vs. Giants game into a laugher on Monday Night Football. Brees threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter, leading New Orleans to a 21-3 lead at the halftime intermission.

After extending their lead with three minutes left in the half, the Saints got the ball back and their quarterback drove New Orleans down the field in 34 seconds for another touchdown to close out an explosive second quarter and put the Giants in serious jeopardy.

Lance Moore caught the touchdown pass, his second of the game. Here's video of the score:


Brees ended the half with 265 total passing yards to go with his three touchdowns. Yup, that'll do.

Aside, in perhaps the most important development tonight, Moore celebrates touchdowns in the best fashion possible.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Drew Brees Throws Second TD, New Orleans Leads 14-3

Drew Brees hasn't been perfect so far on Monday Night Football, but he's been plenty good for the Saints, who lead the Giants by a score of 14-3 after New Orleans latest touchdown late in the second quarter.

Brees has two touchdown passes and 177 total passing yards in the first half -- good news (and stats) for Saints fans and fantasy football owners alike.

For his second touchdown, he found second-year tight end Jimmy Graham on a quick slant for a five-yard pass and score. The Saints have had success driving on the Giants in the first half on Monday, and Brees has been able to finish off the drives with with short, accurate touchdown passes to get New Orleans into the end zone.

Here's video of the second touchdown:

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: New York Cuts Saints Lead With A Field Goal

The New Orleans Saints jumped out to a 7-0 lead over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football thanks to an interceptions by linebacker Will Herring in the endzone. After the score, the Giants got the football back and once again began marching down the football field. Thanks to a couple of runs by Brandon Jacobs and a reception by wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, the Giants were close to getting into the redzone.

A false start on the very next play back the Giants up, however with a false start. The next running play was stuffed and then Eli Manning forced a pass to Hakeem Nicks, but it was broken up by Malcom Jenkins. The Giants wound up settling for a field goal to cut the Saints lead to 7-3.

Clearly, the force is with the Saints tonight.

Giants Vs. Saints Score Update: Drew Brees Gets New Orleans Early Lead, 7-0

The Saints notched the first score on Monday Night Football vs. the Giants to take a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter after a scoreless first period. Drew Brees hit wide receiver Lance Moore on a quick out to from inside the five-yard line on third down.

The Saints quarterback has now thrown a touchdown in 38 consecutive games, the second longest streak in NFL history.

Here's the video highlight of the touchdown:


Moore already has four catches for 44 yards. Brees has completed eight of his first 12 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. The hot start made Moore do this:

Still, the Saints could be up even more if head coach Sean Payton had not tried a fake field goal (click for video) in the first quarter that failed.

The Giants looks to be in control with a long drive at the end of the first quarter, but Eli Manning threw an interception in the end zone to kill New York's momentum.

Here's video of that pick:

VIDEO: Saints Fake Field Goal Falls Short

The New Orleans Saints got the football first to start the game against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Right out of the gate, the Saints began to move right down the football field thanks to some big passing plays by quarterback Drew Brees.

The drive stalled out however and the Saints looked like they were going to kick a field goal. The Saints lined up in the field formation, but it was a fake. Back up quarterback Chase Daniels was the holder and he popped and connected on a pass to tight end Jimmy Graham. The Giants unit did a nice job to stay home however, and after breaking the initial tackle Graham was stopped short of the first down, giving the ball to the Giants on the 10-yard line.
