Found October 12, 2013 on NESN.com:
The Patriots are still reeling from a rough loss in Cincinnati, but there’s no cure for a loser’s hangover quite like winning. It won’t be an easy task this week with the undefeated Saints coming to town for a visit. The Patriots have now faced two legitimate offenses, and the defenses seems capable of withstanding tough assignments. This week might be the toughest of all, though. Drew Brees is one of the top-three quarterbacks in football and Jimmy Graham might be the best pure receiving option in the NFL today. Add in a mix of Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas, Marquez Colston and others, and suddenly you’re trying to defend the equivalent of a fully  loaded artillery base. Offense is no longer the only word to associate with the Saints, though. Their defense has enjoyed quite the turnaround this season under the guidance of Rob Ryan, and they rank near the top of the league against the pass, which means Tom Brady could be in for another long day.

Tom Brady Back to Vintage Form Against Saints, This Season, Despite Not Putting Up Showy Numbers

FOXBORO, Mass. — The last time Tom Brady had more than two fourth-quarter game-winning drives in a season was way back in 2007. Back then, those events were commonplace in New England.

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Patriots

This was by far the Saints' best offensive performance from an offensive line and running game standpoint. It's odd that it happens to coincide with such a bad game from Brees and Graham.
