Saints At Vikings Score Update: Drew Brees Gets A Fourth Touchdown Pass

The Minnesota Vikings got the ball first coming out of the locker room at halftime. . .not that anybody really noticed, because they gave it back to the New Orleans Saints almost immediately, and the Saints took advantage.

Following a three-and-out for Minnesota that featured an intentional grounding penalty on an increasingly shaky-looking Christian Ponder, the Saints went to work at the Minnesota 44-yard line, and it didn't take them long to reach the end zone from there. In fact, it took them just four plays to move those 44 yards, with most of the damage coming on a screen pass to Darren Sproles. On the last play of the drive, Brees found John Gilmore for his fourth touchdown pass of the afternoon, this one coming from two yards out.

Brees is now 23-for-27 for 285 yards and four touchdown passes already. He has thrown six touchdowns in a game once, and five touchdowns in a game three separate times. It appears as though he will do that much damage this afternoon as well. . .at least.

With a little more than twelve minutes left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings trail the New Orleans Saints by a score of 28-13.
