It was another outstanding performance by a man that, more than not, is outstanding.

Drew Brees’ threw for 322 yards and five touchdowns as the New Orleans Saints overcame a slow start and blitzed the Buffalo Bills 35-17 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday.

Brees’ touchdown passes were to Lance Moore for 16 yards, Kenny Stills for 69 and 42 yards and Jimmy Graham for 15 and 13 yards.

The Bills actually led in the game 10-7 early in the second quarter before Brees hooked up with Stills on the long pass with 3:53 left in the half to put New Orleans up for good.

After the defense forced Buffalo to punt, Brees went back to work, leading the Saints on a 77 yard drive in nine plays, culminating with Brees’ first TD pass to Graham with :35 left in the half to give the Saints a 21-10 lead at the break.

The only score in the third quarter was another TD pass to Graham, and, after a Fred Jackson touchdown run for the Bills, Brees scrambled and threw a strike to Stills to end the scoring.

Pierre Thomas led the Saints in rushing with 14 carries for 65 yards.  Jackson led Buffalo with 15 carries for 45 yards.

Stills only caught three passes but they were good for 129 yards and the two scores, as Brees spread the wealth, completing passes to ten different receivers.

The Saints improved to 6-1 with the win, good for a two game lead over Carolina, while Buffalo dropped to 3-5.

New Orleans travels to play the Jets next Sunday.
