The New Orleans Saints beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 35 32 in Pittsburgh on Sunday. Here are five things of note about the game:

1. Saints continue to be impossible to figure out

New Orleans were coming off cleveland browns jersey cheap three consecutive losses in the friendly environs of the Mercedes Benz Superdome, so naturally they went cheap ny jets jerseys on the falcons gear cheap road to a cold weather site Sunday and beat a playoff contender. It was the second straight road victory for the Saints, who also won 28 10 at Carolina on 28 10. The Saints (5 7) temporarily move into sole possession of first place in the NFC South, and could keep that status patriots appearances if Atlanta loses to 9 2 Arizona later Sunday

2. Drew Brees enjoys most efficient game of season

Brees has had dozens of great games in his Hall of Fame career, but few were more important considering the circumstances. Brees attempted a season low 27 passes but threw a season high five touchdowns, including two each in the second and third quarters. Three of those scores went to little used targets such as third string tight end Benjamin Watson, fullback Erik Lorig and fourth wide receiver Nick Toon.

3. Defense contributes two huge turnovers

The Saints took control of the game midway through the second quarter, taking the lead on Brees' TD pass to Watson and forcing a turnover three plays later. Kenny Vaccaro picked off Ben Roethlisberger in the end zone, and the Saints quickly drove 80 yards to take a 14 6 lead. On Pittsburgh's first possession of the second half, defensive end Cameron Jordan batted down a pass and then picked it off. Two plays later, Brees hit Toon for a touchdown and a 21 6 New Orleans lead.

4. Kenny Stills breaks through in a big way

Tight end Jimmy Graham did not catch a pass on Sunday. Marques Colston had just three receptions for 16 yards. Brandin Cooks is already out for the season. It mattered not, thanks largely to Stills. The second year man caught five passes for a career best 162 yards including a 69 yard touchdown in the third quarter.

5. Mark Ingram shakes off injury, two week slump

The former Alabama Heisman Trophy winner had been suffering from a shoulder injury and had posted two straight sub par performances coming into Sunday. But after totaling just 94 yards in losses to Cincinnati and Baltimore, Ingram ran all over those teams' AFC North rival. Ingram carried the ball 23 times for 122 yards, lifting his season yardage total to 751 with four games left to play.
