Drew Brees, Defense Leads Saints To 28-20 Win Over Raiders
Drew Brees passed for 202 yards and a touchdown while leading five scoring drives, and the Saints survived a sloppy second half for a 28-20 preseason victory over the Oakland Raiders on Friday night.
Breesí scoring strike was a 16-yarder to rookie Kenny Stills who made the most of his second straight game playing with the first-team offense.
Brees completed 78 percent of his passes (14 of 18), including a 56-yarder to Nick Toon setting up Mark Ingamís 2-yard TD run.
New Orleansí new defense under coordinator Rob Ryan thrived, sacking Matt Flynn five times in the first half.
The Saints (2-0) led 23-0 before the Raiders (1-1) scored on Flynnís lone TD pass, an 18-yarder to Denarius Moore late in the first half.
