The New Orleans Saints beat the previously undefeated Jets 24-10 Sunday in the Superdome after a 74-yard fourth-quarter touchdown drive gave the Saints a two-touchdown lead, according to wwltv.com.
But it was New Orleans’ defense that beat the Jets, not the offense. Darren Sharper’s interception turned into a 99 yard touchdown return and Remi Ayodele’s fumble recovery turned into a touchdown.
The Saints (4-0) scored two touchdowns on defense, which held New York (3-1) and rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez to fewer than 250 total yards and came up with four turnovers on the day.
Saints QB Drew Brees threw for 190 yards while RB Pierre Thomas tallied 86 yards and a score on the ground.
