Colts embarrassed by Saints

If 0-and-6 didn't make Colts fans a little squemish, that 60 points probably did. Actually it was 62 before all was said an done at the Louisiana Superdome on Sunday night, as the Saints put the exclaimation points on a dreadful first two months for the Indianapolis Colts.

So often on the other side of these kinda games, the Jim Caldwell's team fell 62-7 to New Orleans in a game where records fell on both sides of the ball.

The Saints got a new franchise record for points in a game while the Colts allowed the most in their history before Leigh Terrance added the final points with a 42-yard interception return touchdown.

Its a touchdown that produced some Colts infamy, as the team allowed the most points in franchise history, surpassing the 58 they allowed to the Bears on October 21, 1956 at Wrigley Field

No matter the margin, though, the Colts fall to 0-7 on the season to continue their worst start since the 1997 season when the dropped the first ten games of the year.

New Orleans outgained the Colts 557-252 with Drew Brees accounting for 325 of those through the air as he completed 31-of-35 passes for five touchdowns.

Three of those came in the first quarter as the Saints scored on their first three possessions. Jed Collins added a one-yard run early in the second quarter and then a John Kasey field goal later in the quarter pushed the lead to 31-0.

Delone Carter provided the only break in a dismal night when he provided 50 of the Colts' 80 yards on the drive following the field goal. The final two came from Carter, who squeezed into the endzone for the only score the Colts would manage all night.

As for the Saints, they were far from finished. They added a field goal before the end of the half to push the lead to 34-7 and two Brees-to-Jimmy Graham touchdown passes pushed the New Orleans lead to 41 points.

Not even the departure of Brees could stop the rout, as the Chase Daniel-led Saints drove 58-yards for another score that was capped by a Darren Sproles 16-yard touchdown run.
