The Saints offense wasn't as good as usual, but Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes. They should feel fortunate to have won this game. Brett Favre had a good day with over 310 yards, but the two picks really hurt.
And the weekend winner is ... the city of New Orleans. And it's about time. Not only does it have the Saints in their first Super Bowl, it has native son Peyton Manning in his second. The way I see it, New Orleans can't lose.
