NEW ORLEANS -- It looks like that interception from Green Bay safety Aaron Rouse just delayed the inevitable.

The Saints broke the game open with Drew Brees' second 70-yard touchdown of the game, this one to Marques Colston, to go up 45-21 with 2:26 left in the third quarter. Ironically, it was Rouse who took a horrible angle after Colston blew past cornerback Charles Woodson. Rouse was in no position to make the tackle after Colston caught the ball.

Television replays indicated that Colston might have flipped the ball away before he crossed the goal line, but the Packers did not challenge the play.

We'll be back with you if this game tightens up. Otherwise, we'll have something at the final gun and then a few hours later.
