The 62 points scored broke the previous Saints record of 51, set three times -- 1969 at St. Louis Cardinals, 1976 at Seattle and 2008 at home vs. Green Bay. The 62 points ties the highest total in the NFL since the 1970 merger. Eight teams have exceeded the 62-point mark, but none since 1966.
The 55-point margin of victory is a franchise mark (surpassing the 42-point victory over Denver in 1988), and it was only the second time since 1989 that any NFL team has won by 50 or more points (New England 59, Tennessee 0, 2009).
The Saints set team scoring marks of eight touchdowns, eight extra points and 21 first-quarter points.
The Saints' offense rolled up 36 first downs, a franchise record. The previous mark of 32 was achieved four times, most recently against Detroit in 2008. The NFL record is 39.
Kicker John Kasay set a franchise mark with eight extra points.
The Saints finished with 557 total yards, tying the second-highest total in franchise history. New Orleans had 236 yards rushing and 321 yards passing.
Drew Brees completed 89 percent of his passes, the second-best completion percentage -- Mike Buck was 10-of-11 (90.9 percent) in 1993 against Pittsburgh -- in Saints history and the best by a QB with at least 20 attempts. Brees went 31-of 35 for 325 yards and five touchdowns. He finished with a passer rating of 144.9.
