After the San Fransisco 49ers scored the first touchdown of the day through a monster play by Vernon Davis, Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints were eager to drive down the field and answer. Perhaps Brees was a bit too eager. The Saints have now turned the ball over for the second time, with Dashon Goldson doing the honors this time with an interception.

The Saints looked to be getting into their regular rhythm with their first two plays, successful short passes to Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles. On their third play, they got aggressive and sent their receivers out on vertical routes. Brees threw deep, and apparently didn't see Goldson, who looked like he knew the play from the start. When Brees released the ball he was 10 yards away from the intended target and he made a fantastic jump to get to the ball and make the pick.
His return into the red zone was just as impressive as the pick.
