MIAMI (AP) - The New Orleans Saints stymied Peyton Manning, then
intercepted him to seal the Super Bowl, rallying to beat the
Indianapolis Colts 31-17 Sunday night.
Tracy Porter intercepted a pass from Manning - of all people -
and sprinted 74 yards for a touchdown and a 31-17 lead with 3:12
left. Playing in the Super Bowl for the first time, the Saints went
on a 31-7 run after falling behind 10-0 early.
MVP Drew Brees went 32 for 39 for 288 yards for the Saints,
tying Tom Brady's Super Bowl record for completions.
Brees went 7 for 7 on the drive that put New Orleans ahead to
stay, with the score coming on a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy
Manning's interception was the game's lone turnover, and he was
rolled to the turf trying in vain to tackle Porter.
