Saints enter season's second half as prime contenders

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints marked the midpoint of the season by making a convincing case that they are again the class of the NFC South - a division they've won the past three seasons.

Their 38-3 demolition of Tom Brady's Buccaneers on Sunday night increased New Orleans' winning streak to five games and gave the Saints (6-2) a season sweep of second-place Tampa Bay (6-3).

"Those are rare, especially against as good a football team as the one we just played," Brees said of the stunningly lopsided victory of a game between two of the top teams in the NFC. "All the way around, it was a really solid performance by the entire team."
