Brees Throws Saints Past Dolphins

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- Drew Brees completed 30 of 39 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns leading the New Orleans Saints past the Miami Dolphins 38-17 Monday night.

The win improves the Saints record to 4-0 for the season and drops the Dolphins to 3-1.

Brees completed touchdown passes to Darren Sproles, Benjamin Watson and two to Jimmy Graham, as the Saints are 4-0 for the first time since their Super Bowl championship season in 2009.

"I felt like we found our rhythm," Brees said. "Everytime we touched the ball it felt like we were going to go down and score points."

And it seemed everytime the Saints' defense took the field it was reeking havoc on the Dolphins. The Saints forced four Miami turnovers, intercepting quarterback Ryan Tannehill three times and sacking him four.

Darren Sproles had seven catches for 114 yards and rushed for a touchdown in the win.
