New Orleans Saints Hold Long Winning Streak Over New York Teams
The New Orleans Saints own New York like grandma owns apple pie. (Oops, did I say apple?) Yes, the New York Giants won Super Bowl 46. And Rex Ryan always has the New York Jets in the headlines. However, the Saints have won five straight over both New York NFL teams. Take a closer look at the Saints five game winning streak over the Giants and Jets.
5. 11/27/2005: New Orleans Saints def. New York Jets 21-19
The winning streak over New York actually began the year that Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I must have had other things on my mind because I remember nothing about this game versus the Jets. However, it was Aaron Brooks' last win as the Saints QB. On the day, he was 17-23 with three TDs and no INTs against the Jets.
4. 12/24/2006: New Orleans Saints def. New York Giants 30-7
In their last three wins over the Giants, the Saints have outscored them by a total of 69 points. New Orleans gave its fans a nice Christmas present in 2006 when the Saints ripped the Giants in New York on Christmas Eve. It was "Thunder and Lightning" as Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush each rushed for over 100 yards against the Giants.
3. 10/4/2009: New Orleans Saints def. New York Jets 24-10
Fortunately, New Orleans didn't face any New York teams during the Jason David era (although an easy win over the Giants or Jets may have given us some needed momentum.) I went to this Jets game and I remember New York playing well against Drew Brees. However, a 99-yard TD on a Darren Sharper INT aided the victory over the Jets.
2. 10/18/2009: New Orleans Saints def. New York Giants 48-27
I was back in the Superdome two weeks later as we came off our bye week to face the other New York team. New Orleans thoroughly dominated the Giants in all phases of the game. If Sean Payton hadn't have taken his foot off the pedal, the final score would have been much worse. Brees threw for 369 yards and four TDs versus the Giants.
1. 11/28/2011: New Orleans Saints def. New York Giants 49-24
In 2011, the Giants again had to face the Saints in New Orleans after their bye week. To make matters worse, the Giants game was on Monday Night Football. This game was almost a carbon copy of the previous New York game. The NFC South champions tore up the Super Bowl champion Giants on 372 passing yards and four Brees TDs.
Patrick Michael lives in New Orleans and has always been a big fan of the New Orleans Saints. Patrick's favorite Saints season was 2009 when New Orleans won Super Bowl 44.
