Brees' passing leads Saints past Vikings in opener

Brees' passing leads Saints past Vikings in opener

NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees and the Saints extended their post-Super Bowl euphoria for at least another week and handed Brett Favre a second consecutive loss in the Louisiana Superdome.

Brees completed 27 of 36 passes for 237 yards and one touchdown, and the Saints survived a hard-fought season opener for a 14-9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night.

It wasn't the most spectacular way to open a title defense, considering it was a rematch of the riveting 2009 NFC title game last January, in which the Saints won in overtime to advance to their first Super Bowl.

It was the lowest-scoring victory of the Sean Payton era, which began in 2006, but the Saints will take it, considering their defense limited Favre to 171 passing yards and one score.

Yep, Brees looked sharp, but I'd give the credit to the D. Who'da thought?
