NEW ORLEANS -- It didn’t end quite the way it started, but, still, the Saints were impressive on the opening drive.

They had to settle for a John Carney field goal that hit the upright before going through. Taking three points, instead of seven, is a bit disappointing. But the Saints looked great early in a drive that went 53 yards on eight plays.

Drew Brees opened the game with a 33-yard pass to Devery Henderson and Pierre Thomas and Mike Bell each had a nice run.

Now, let’s see what the New Orleans defense can do.
