Saints defeat Giants 52-49 in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints are now on a 3 game winning streak after defeating the New York Giants in the last 5 seconds of regulation Sunday.
If you enjoy offense, the Saints and Giants game was for you. The win for New Orleans was due in large part by a throwback performance by quarterback Drew Brees. Brees completed 40 of 50 passes for an impressive 511 yards and tied an NFL single-game record 7 touchdowns against the Giants.
On the opposite side of the field, Eli Manning completed 30 of 41 passes for 350 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Former LSU star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a nice day for the Giants. Beckham has 8 catches for 130 yards and 3 touchdowns. Fellow former Tigers wideout Rueben Randle has 5 receptions for 55 yards.
The Saints are now 4-4 and are in third place in the NFC South division behind the Panthers and the Falcons.
