Brees leads Saints past Rams, 31-13

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Drew Brees threw for three scores, Malcolm Jenkins returned one of his two interceptions 96 yards for his first career touchdown, and the New Orleans Saints won their sixth straight game 31-13 over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Marques Colston had a pair of touchdown catches in traffic as New Orleans (10-3) raced to a 14-0 lead and never trailed. Lance Moore made a 31-yard touchdown catch.

Brees finished 25 of 40 for 221 yards and was intercepted twice.

Rams rookie Sam Bradford scored the only St. Louis touchdown on a short keeper. He passed for 231 yards and was intercepted twice, both times near the Saints' goal line.

Bradford's first interception was especially costly, giving the Saints a 21-6 lead when it appeared the Rams (6-7) were about to pull within one score late in the second quarter.
