Coming into Sunday’s matchup at the Superdome, the Saints were heavily favored, and they played like it, defeating the Arizona ,Cardinals 31-7 in domination fashion.
Drew Brees threw for 342 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, Jimmy Graham caught nine passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns, and the Saints picked off Carson Palmer twice en route to win to go to 3-0 on the season.
The Cardinals, on the other hand, fall to 1-2 on the season. Bruce Arians will have plenty to talk about in the film study, as the Cardinals failed to get anything going after the opening touchdown-scoring drive. After that, the Saints scored 31 unanswered points, and dominated the Cards on almost every facet of the game.
After a reassuring performance against Detroit last week, Arizona’s offensive line played poorly to say the least, giving up four sacks and nine quarterback hits on Carson Palmer, whose statline suffered due to the fact: 18 for 35 with 187 yards and 2 interceptions.

Bruce Arians wouldn't do it. Neither would Carson Palmer or any of the Cardinals players.
