New Orleans had the benefit of solid field position to start the drive, beginning on their own 34-yard line. Darren Sproles, Devery Henderson and Marques Colston all had key receptions that helped move the Saints down the field, but Drew Brees failed to produce another first down once he got his team to the edge of field goal range, forcing the Saints to settle for a Kasay field goal.
