Quarterback Drew Brees led the New Orleans Saints to a 28-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football, capping off the 9th week of the National Football League season.
Brees three two touchdown passes and pushed his streak of consecutive games with a TD pass to 51, the best passing streak in league history.
Cornerback Patrick Robinson, a former Florida State standout, returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown, helping the Saints to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The Saints (3-5) put their 34-14 loss to the Denver Broncos in their previous game behind them and stepped it up on defense, which has been their weakness all season.
Brees completed 21 of 27 passes for 239 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions, giving him a passer rating of 128.2.
Michael Vick ended the game with 22 completions on 41 attempts for 272 yards with one TD and one interception for the Eagles, who are now 3-5. EFE
