Rosenhaus 'shocked' at performance

Agent Drew Rosenhaus told following the Saints' 38-17 win over the Patriots, Monday night, that the performance of his client, Mike McKenzie, was "One of the greatest accomplishments I've bee associated with", and "shocked" the longtime deal-maker. McKenzie made two of the game's biggest plays -- a first-quarter interception and four-down deflection in the third quarter -- despite not having played in an NFL game for more than a year and being signed by New Orleans just a week before. "You rarely see stuff as an agent that shocks you," Rosenhaus said. "This whole event did." For more on Rosenhaus and McKenzie click here.

French quartered: Saints beat Pats

Drew Brees shredded the Patriots defense for pass plays of 75, 68 and 38 yards and threw five touchdown passes as the New Orleans Saints stayed perfect with a 38-17 win over the Patriots on Monday night at the Superdome. Midway through the third quarter Brees had completed 14 of his first 16 passes for 299 yards on his way to a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Brees threw three first-half touchdowns against the Patriots defense, the first time an opponent accomplished that feat against New England since 1999. Brees finished 18-for-23 for 371 yards. Tom Brady passed Drew Bledsoe to become New England's all-time passing leader but was held without a TD pass and threw a pair of interceptions, completing just 21-of-36 for 237 yards. The Patriots fall to 7-4 and play in Miami on Sunday afternoon.
