The Saints set or tied several franchise records in Sunday night’s win. Most notably was the 62 points scored, which shattered the previous Saints record of 51, set on three occasions – 1969 at St. Louis Cardinals, 1976 at Seattle and 2008 at home vs. Green Bay.
The 62 points matches the highest single-game total in the NFL since the 1970 merger. Eight teams have exceeded the 62-point mark, but none since 1966.
The 55-point margin of victory was not only a franchise mark (surpassing the 42-point victory over Denver in 1988), but it marked only the second time since 1989 that any NFL team has won by 50 or more points (New England 59, Tennessee 0, 2009).
Brees tossed five touchdowns and 325 yards on 31-35 passing. Brees tossed a pair of TDs to WR Marques Colston and TE Jimmy Graham and one to Sproles.
Colston collected seven catches for 98 yards. Graham had six catches for 54 yards.
Ingram led the Saints in rushing with a career-best 91 yards on 14 carries. Sproles had a season-high 88 yards on 12 carries, including an 16-yard touchdown run.
LB Jonathan Casillas led the Saints on defense with five total tackles and a sack.
