NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees completed 27 of 32 passes for 311 yards and three touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints ended the Green Bay Packers’ four-game winning streak, 44-23 on Sunday night.

Rookie receiver Brandin Cooks had a 50-yard touchdown catch and a 4-yard scoring run, and tight end Jimmy Graham also caught a touchdown pass to help the Saints (3-4) pull even in victories with Carolina (3-4-1), setting up a showdown to decide first place in the NFC South on Thursday night.

Aaron Rodgers, intercepted only once in Green Bay’s first seven games, was picked off twice and sacked three times. He still passed for 418 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb, but it was not nearly enough to prevent the Packers (5-3) from falling a game behind NFC North leader Detroit.

    The Packers really stunk the place up on both sides of the ball! Thompson has really stocked the team with wannabees! McCarthy trying to call trick plays is childish and shows he’s not a very good play caller. Oh well, maybe next year.
