    JACKSONVILLE, fl- It was a game that most around The League were looking forward to. A high octane NFC powerhouse traveling to face one of the early season surprises in the AFC.

    However when it was all said and done the traditional power cruised to victory over the contenders 52-23 in a game that wasn't close after the first quarter.

    The Saints would get the ball first, and on their first play they would fumble. That would lead to an easy Jacksonville score to make it 7-0 and get he home fans on their feet.

    However New Orleans would then take over. Mark Ingram would score on a 29 yard pass from Drew Brees. Then the defense would get involved, and for the first of three times in the game intercept Blaine Gabbert. That interception would be returned by Tracy Porter for a touchdown and quickly the Saints were back on top 14-7.

    The second quarter would continue to see New Orleans pour it on with two 40 yard touchdown passes by Drew Brees. Their defense would hold Jacksonville to just two field goals and the Saints would lead at half 28-13.

    The Saints would cruise in the second half with Brees throwing another touchdown pass, then Ingram and Sproles scoring on runs. When it was all said and done, New Orleans had an impressive 52-23 victory on the road.

    The Saints (4-0) will travel to take on the rejuvenated Carolina Panthers who just made a blockbuster trade for Joe Flacco.

    The Jaguars (2-2) will try to rebound and keep pace with the undefeated Titans in their division.
