The New Orleans Saints are putting the rest of the NFL on notice as they cruised to their eighth straight victory.
Behind an impressive 509 yards of offense, the Saints (8-1) handled the host Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) 51-14.
The Saints remain in first place of the NFC South and are a half game back of the Los Angeles Rams (9-1) at the top of the conference.
The game was tied at 7 at the end of the first quarter but the Saints stormed away with 44 unanswered points to seal the victory.
Drew Brees had an incredibly efficient outing, finishing 22-of-25 for 265 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Michael Thomas recorded eight receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns.
Alvin Kamara rushed for two touchdowns. Mark Ingram amassed 104 yards on the ground along with a touchdown reception.
The Saints defense stepped up with two interceptions (Marcus Williams and Eli Apple) and four sacks.
Brees discussed the dominating road victory at the Bengals with CST’s Mike Nabors.
“We felt like it was going to be a huge challenge coming on the road against a really talented AFC North team that’s coming off a bye week. So we were ready to play our best game,” Brees said. “Thus far I think this was probably our most complete performance if you look [at] both sides of the ball.”
The Saints host the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles (4-5) on Nov. 18.
