Saints improve to 3-1 with 23-10 Win Over Jaguars
 
The Saints improved to 3-1 after a 23-10 victory over the Jaguars Sunday afternoon at EverBank Stadium.

“We we're going to have to play our best football,” said Head Coach Sean Payton. “We scored for the first time on our opening drive. We need to clean some things up but it was a good win.”

TE Jimmy Graham highlighted the Saints victory with career bests of 10 catches and 132 yards, including a one-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.

QB Drew Brees finished the day completing 31 of 44 passes for 351 yards a touchdown and two interceptions.

RB Darren Sproles had another outstanding all-around performance with 188 all-purpose yards, including a season-best 75 rushing yards on seven carries (10. 7 avg.)

WR Robert Meachem had a strong performance with four catches for 59 yards.

Rookie RB Mark Ingram had a career-best 55 rushing yards on 17 carries.

New Orleans has outgained Jacksonville 177-104 on the ground led by the three-headed trio of Sproles, Ingram and Pierre Thomas.

Harper led the team in tackles with eight (five solo) and a sack. LB Jonathan Vilma notched five tackles (four solo) after sitting out last week with a knee injury.

We just proved we can win ugly. Very important for the rest of the season.

Smith proved how important he is for the Saints passrush, harper had a good day overall knocking people around as usual. Graham and Sproles will be household names after this season their success continues at this pace.

Jed Collins might have had the games best play not when he scored the TD but when he lifted Mark Ingram and threw him forward for a first down.

Our DBs left 3-4 picks out there on the field due to sloppy hands. They need to shape that up if the D is gonna be a turnover machine again.
