Saints Defeat Cardinals In Hall Of Fame Game

Trying to put the long offseason behind them, the New Orleans Saints let out some frustration Sunday night, defeating the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame preseason game by the score of 17-10.

Drew Brees was on point, sharp, and accurate in his only appearance of the night. On the game’s opening drive, Brees led the Saints on 77 yards down the field in only 10 plays, going 4-5 for 41 yards in the process. Running back Mark Ingram capped off the drive on a one yard TD plunge.

Backup Chase Daniel (pictured left) got plenty of action in the first of five preseason games for the black and gold. Brees’ primary backup had a share of good moments, and bad. He led New Orleans on a 7 play, 94 yard touchdown drive, connecting with undrafted rookie running back Travaris Cadet for the score. He also threw an interception in Arizona’s endzone early in the second half.

Speaking of Cadet, he put together an impressive receiving stat line, hauling in 8 passes for 80 yards.

While winning a preseason game doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of the 2012 season, it was a nice way to cap off a weekend in which longtime great Saint Willie Roaf was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

New Orleans will now travel to Boston and get ready for a preseason matchup with the New England Patriots on Thursday.
