The Saints are rolling, yet making little progress in the powerful NFC South.

New Orleans won its third straight game Sunday, beating Seattle 34-16 as Drew Brees became the Saints' all-time completions leader, throwing for four touchdowns. The victory lifted the defending Super Bowl champions to 7-3.

All that's worth is a tie for the runner-up spot in the division with Tampa Bay, which handed the 49ers their first home shutout since 1977.
