The Saints put together a couple of excellent drives in the second quarter, but have not looked capable of scoring a touchdown at any point in the second half up until Sproles' monster play. The drive was more than that play, however, as the Saints went 79 yards for the score. Brees was brilliant on the drive, spreading the ball around to Devery Henderson, Marques Golston and Robert Meachem before going to Sproles. They got down to the San Fransisco 44-yard line before this happened.
Sproles now has 13 receptions on the day, tying an NFL playoff record. Brees has now attempted 58 passes and the two quarterbacks look like they could possibly combine for over 100 pass attempts by the end of the game.
