Found October 27, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Through about the first quarter and a half Sunday, the New Orleans Saints' offensive unit resembled a bunch still enjoying their bye week. The swarming, bullying Saints defense created numerous opportunities to hammer the Buffalo Bills into submission early. But penalties, a lack of execution and two missed Garrett Hartley field goals allowed the Bills to linger -- and even take a lead. That served as the wake-up call as quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints' offense promptly ended the first half with two impressive scoring drives, propelling New Orleans to a 35-17 win over the Bills in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The win keeps the Saints (6-1) in the thick of the race for the NFC's best record and firmly atop the NFC South.

Recap: Saints beat the Bills, 35-17

From 1967 to 2005, the New Orleans Saints had won just one..Count them..one playoff game and just two division titles. They were a joke. They invented paper bags with eye holes cut in for their faces and were probably the first NFL team to rewrite their name as an insult..Saints to Aints. But a funny thing happened, they got a QB..A fricken franchise QB. You can talk all you...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Bills

35 points will be enough to win almost every week this season for this season if the defense continues to play this way. The Saints got the job done with variety in the passing game, something we haven't seen often this season, and some decent gains on the ground. The offensive line had a big task in front of them and came up with mixed results, but while the unit wasn't...

Saints Nation: Saints Cruise Past Bills 35-17

The Saints were able to take care of a clearly inferior but tricky team in the Bills 35-17 in the Superdome. The offense sputtered early before getting some rhythm, ignited by a huge pass play from Brees to Kenny Stills for a touchdown. The defense did their usual thing, rushing the passer, creating turnovers and holding an opponent under 20 yet again. This was a trademark 2013 Saints...

Post Mortem: Buffalo Bills vs New Orleans Saints

That certainly was ugly. No one thought that the Buffalo Bills would head into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and beat the New Orleans Saints on their own field, but we were all hoping it wouldn’t be that ugly. It was close for a time, but at the end of the first half, the two teams may as well have just stayed in the locker room. The Bills had limited the Saints, who were mostly...

Week 8 in the NFL was one of tricks and treats, my Fantasy Fixers. Megatron was the fantasy Frankenstein of the week as he went OFF on the Dallas Cowboys and led the league in scoring.
