VIDEO: Drew Brees Hits Lance Moore For 47-Yard Touchdown

The New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees are really lighting things up in Minnesota. With ten minutes to go in the third quarter, Brees has already thrown five touchdowns and 332 yards, and the Saints hold a big lead over the Vikings, after struggling early. It took them just under two minutes after getting the ball in the second half (after forcing a Minnesota punt), and only four plays for Brees to score and put the Saints up 28-13.

Minnesota came out, looking to get something done and then ... were forced to punt after a three and out. This time, it only took Brees three plays to shred the Vikings defense for a touchdown, hitting receiver Lance Moore with a short pass over the middle that was taken 47 yards to the end zone. He's not perfect though - he threw an incompletion on first down!

Here's video of the touchdown, Brees' fifth of the day:

Saints Vs. Vikings: Failed Onside Kick Leads To Minnesota Points, But New Orleans Leads 21-13 At Halftime

After quite a few miscues, the Saints got to work near the start of the second quarter. Drew Brees orchestrated a five-play, 46-yard drive that ended in a Saints touchdown, putting them up 14-6. Then, they tried for a surprise onside kick, but it was recovered by Everson Griffen of the Minnesota Vikings. That set the Vikings up at their own 39-yard line and it was all Adrian Peterson from there. He rushed for eight yards, one yard, and then broke out a 39-yard rush on the right side. Quarterback Joe Webb checked in at this point and picked up a couple of yards, but it was Christian Ponder who capped it all off with a pass over the middle to Toby Gerhart for ten yards and a touchdown.

New Orleans came right back though, with another impressive drive. Drew Brees took them 74 yards in 13 plays, capping it off with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles. Lance Moore has a 22-yard reception on the drive, as well. At the half, New Orleans holds a 21-13 lead.

Saints Vs. Vikings: Drew Brees Fumble Costly, But Comes Back With TD

The New Orleans Saints just continue to shoot themselves in the foot. On their previous drive, they almost were denied points after a holding penalty denied a big touchdown, but they ended up coming back to score. The drive before that, tight end Jimmy Graham fumbled after catching a pass from Drew Brees, which led to a Minnesota Vikings field goal and a 3-0 lead.

Now they've handed the Vikings some more points. Drew Brees fumbled the ball near mid-field and it was recovered by Everson Griffen, who picked it up at the 30 yard-line and took it to the 21. Minnesota looked to take advantage of the miscues with a touchdown, but after an incompletion and losses of six and four yards - an Adrian Peterson stuff and Christian Ponder sack - they settled for another field goal, a 49-yarder from Ryan Longwell.

Then it was Minnesota miscues that helped out the Saints. Minnesota was called for unnecessary roughness when Darren Sproles was hit out of bounds after a big gain. Then Marques Colston went deep to the end zone, and drew a pass interference penalty. This set them up at the one yard line, where Brees hit Graham for the short touchdown over the middle, putting them up 14-6.

Saints Vs. Vikings Score Update: Drew Brees Throws TD, Lance Moore Celebrates

After Jimmy Graham gave up a fumble that led to a Minnesota Vikings field goal, the New Orleans Saints set out to even the score. That is to say, they set out to take the lead - which they did, from the Minnesota 40 yard-line, when quarterback Drew Brees went deep over the middle to Robert Meachem for 40 yards and a touchdown. But it was called back, as the Saints were called for offensive holding. So instead, they backed up to midfield.

Naturally, the Saints weren't having any of that, so Brees began to hit his receivers all over the field for gains of 10 yards, 25 yards, and then 10 yards again to set up with a first and goal at the five yard line. Then he hit receiver Lance Moore over the middle for a five-yard gain and a touchdown. The 25-yard reception on the drive went to Pierre Thomas following the holding penalty.  

And then Moore was possessed by the groove:

Saints Vs. Vikings Score Update: Jimmy Graham Fumbles, Minnesota Gets Field Goal

It didn't take long for the game's first turnover for Sunday's game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings. Drew Brees went to Jimmy Graham, but he fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Minnesota at the 48 yard line and taken to the New Orleans 26. Minnesota took over just a couple minutes into the game. It hadn't been a good offensive drive before that point, either.

Though they set up just outside the red zone, the Vikings couldn't really get anything done. Adrian Peterson gained a yard, which receiver Percy Harvin promptly lost on a run of his own, and then Christian Ponder threw a deep pass incomplete to Harvin. So with a gain of nothing, Ryan Longwell came out and booted the 44 yard field goal without issue.

Minnesota has the 3-0 lead just under four minutes into the game.
