NEW ORLEANS (AP)— Drew Brees passed for 370 yards and three touchdowns, and twice led the Saints back from fourth-quarter deficits in a 40-33 victory over the Texans on Sunday.

Mark Ingram's first career touchdown on a 13-yard run gave the Saints (2-1) the lead for good with under 3 minutes left. Brees was intercepted twice, but redeemed himself with three touchdown passes in the second half, including a 27-yarder to tight end Jimmy Graham and a 16-yarder to Lance Moore.

Matt Schaub passed for 373 yards and three TDs of his own, and the Texans' prolific offense moved the ball well for most of the game. Houston (2-1) was doomed in the end by four drives inside the 20 that resulted in only field goals, along with Schaub's lone interception that Jabari Greer snagged near midfield in the fourth quarter, setting up Moore's touchdown.
