JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Drew Brees threw for 351 yards and a touchdown, Darren Sproles added 188 all-purpose yards and the New Orleans Saints beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-10 on Sunday.
The Saints (3-1) scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and looked well on their way to reaching 30 points for the fourth consecutive week. But Brees threw two interceptions, and the Saints were forced to settle for three field goals in the second half.
It didn't matter against the Jaguars (1-3), who have scored a whopping 39 points this season. They have two touchdowns in rookie Blaine Gabbert's two starts.
Gabbert struggled in his first home start, no surprise since the Saints have given rookie quarterbacks all sorts of problems in three years under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Gabbert completed 16 of 42 passes for 196 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He was sacked three times.
