Saints get defensive and win

(TSX / STATS) -- METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have won three games in a row and have shown an ability to win in a variety of ways.

Their 52-38 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome wasn't a Drew Brees-led shootout as one might suspect. The point output was more a result of a big-play defense, which scored three touchdowns for the first time in franchise history and forced two more turnovers, one of which led to another touchdown.

The defense had three interceptions for the second time in three games and also made five sacks.
