Saints Postgame Notes

 

  • QB Drew Brees completed 39 of 60 passes for 404 yards, two touchdowns and a 95.4 passer rating. His completions were an NFL postseason single-game record and it was the 15th postseason 400-yard passing game in postseason record books.
  • The Saints rolled up a total of 474 yards, a club playoff record. Their 32 first downs, 22, passing, were also club postseason records
  • The Saints drove 52 yards in eight plays for a touchdown on their first offensive possession. It is the tenth time overall this season the Saints have scored on their first drive (seven TD, three FG).
  • Going back to the start of the 2009 season, the Saints have scored on their first offensive possession 20 times (14 TD, six FG) in 36 games (including playoffs).
  • Facing his former team, RB Julius Jones carried 15 times for 59 yards with two touchdowns and had six receptions for 61 yards, giving him a club-best 120 yards from scrimmage. His five-yard touchdown run was the first touchdown by an NFL player against a team that had cut him in the same season. He added a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and his 33-yard screen pass reception helped move the Saints deep into Seahawks territory, helping set up a field goal.
  • WR Devery Henderson led the Saints in receiving with seven receptions for 71 yards, including a fourth quarter touchdown grab. He also had a club-long 40-yard reception.
  • WR Marques Colston had four receptions for 66 yards. A first half, 30-yard grab was a postseason career-best.
  • LBs Jonathan Vilma and Jo-Lonn Dunbar tied for the team lead with seven tackles apiece.
  • LB Scott Shanle added a fourth quarter sack to go with six tackles (three solo).
  • CB Jabari Greer had a first quarter ten-yard interception return, the first of his career in postseason, to go with three solo tackles.
