TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Drew Brees threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns Sunday, leading the New Orleans Saints to a 31-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Super Bowl champions rebounded from a mistake-filled road loss that dumped them into third place in the NFC South, scoring on their first three possessions and getting an unexpected lift from rookie running back Chris Ivory.

Ivory rushed for 158 yards on 15 carries, stepping up in the absence of the injured Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas.

The Saints (4-2) amassed 476 yards total offense and weren't forced to punt until early in the fourth quarter.

Tampa Bay (3-2) was held scoreless until Josh Freeman led a long fourth-quarter touchdown drive aided by a pair of personal foul penalties for a late hit on the quarterback.
