TAMPA, FL (KPLC) - The New Orleans Saints looked like the team from last year that won the Super Bowl, with their 31-6 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The win puts the Black and Gold at 4 and 2 for the season.

Drew Brees was "Cool Brees", going 21-32 for 263 yards and three touchdowns.  The big stat of the game was the performance from running back Chris Ivory.  The Longview, Texas native had fifteen carries for 158 yards.  The Saints are going to need him to continue with the ground work with running backs Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush sidelined with injuries.

New Orleans takes on the Cleveland Browns next Sunday in the Superdome.
