NEW ORLEANS — In their first game in the newly named Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday night, the New Orleans Saints performed like a top-of-the-line model from the famed German automaker.

And the Saints made sure their first spin in it was a smooth ride.

Playing at home for the first time in a month, the Saints set numerous records in a 62-7 wipeout of the Indianapolis Colts — the team the Saints defeated in Super Bowl XLIV just 20‰ months ago.

The stakes weren’t quite that high this time around, but that wasn’t such a bad thing for the winless Colts (0-7).

The Saints (5-2) set numerous franchise records — including first downs, points and largest margin of victory in a game — which helped make up for a crushing 55-21 loss to the Colts in the same building back in 2003.

That night, Peyton Manning threw six touchdown passes to lead the rout of his hometown team. On Sunday night, Manning, who has been sidelined all season after having two surgeries on his neck, could only look on as Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for 325 yards and five scores in less than three quarters of work.

“I’m sure (Mercedes-Benz) was pleased with the result of their first game,” a beaming Brees said in opening his postgame news conference.

GGrrrrr.....

We win a great game and all we hear about is Mercedes Benz...

I for one don't like the idea of naming stadiums after a corporate sponser..

To me it will always Be The Super Dome.. Not the Mercedes Benz Super Dome
