Of all the things Who Dat Nation feasted on this Thanksgiving, nothing tasted better than breaking out the broom against a rival.
The Saints (10-1) carved up the Atlanta Falcons 31-17 under the primetime lights at the Superdome to push their winning streak to 10 games.
The streak is now the second longest in franchise history for the NFC South leading Saints.
The Saints are tied with the Los Angeles Rams for the best record in the NFL.
The Saints swept the season series from the Falcons for the first time since 2015.
Drew Brees completed 15 of his 22 passes for 171 yards and four touchdowns. For the second consecutive week, Brees spread the wealth by throwing touchdown passes to four different Saints (Dan Darnold, Tommylee Lewis, Austin Carr, Keith Kirkwood).
The MVP candidate has amassed 3,135 yards, 29 touchdowns and only two interceptions this season.
Alvin Kamara rushed for 89 yards on 14 carries.
The Saints defense had a dominating performance, with six sacks, three fumble recoveries and an interception (A.J. Klein).
Cameron Jordan led the way with two sacks. P.J. Williams, Marcus Williams, Demario Davis and Sheldon Rankins each added a sack apiece.
Eli Apple, Vonn Bell and Marcus Williams recovered the fumbles.
The Saints never trailed and held the Falcons to 26 rushing yards.
Afterwards, Brees spoke with CST’s Mike Nabors about the Saints’ fifth straight double-digit victory.
“Continuing to find ways to win. What is winning football? Taking care of the football and taking it away. We did that tonight,” Brees said. “Rushing the football, we did that tonight…Stopping their rush, really making them one dimensional.”
Next up is a Thursday Night Football matchup at the Dallas Cowboys (6-5).
