The 2013 New Orleans Saints are beginning to resemble the 2009 New Orleans Saints with a quarterback playing lights out for the last two weeks and a defense forcing a bushel of turnovers while generating a pass rush.

Drew Brees had a fabulous night, completing 30-of-39 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions for a terrific quarterback rating of 144.5.

The Saints became just the eighth team in NFL history to go from 0-4 one season to 4-0 the next with their convincing 38-17 victory over the Dolphins in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

This was the 12th straight home win for the Saints under Sean Payton. That is some home field advantage!

Ryan Tannehill is a nice young quarterback but his four turnovers (three interceptions, one fumble) proved lethal for Miami. There was no chance for the Dolphins to overcome that deficit.

The Saints are virtually unbeatable in prime time under Sean Payton, especially at home.

And one of only 4 undefeated teams, the only one 2-0 in their division, a 13.25/game scoring delta.

The Patriots are 2-0 in their division, and there are.5 undefeated teams. Great to look at though. It would be alot more convincing if they remain undefeated after the Seattle game. They are looking pretty good. Hopefully they can maintain on a short week.

Dolphins and Chiefs haven't played a divisional opponent after four games?

Nope, part of the reason I've not recognized their perceived grandeur. Divisional games are normally the toughest.
