NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees passed for 258 yards and two touchdowns, and New Orleans running backs combined for 195 yards rushing in a 27-16 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Brees' scoring passes went for 3 yards to Lance Moore and 21 yards to Darren Sproles. Pierre Thomas added a tackle-breaking, 9-yard score for the Saints (6-3), who watched their running game bounce back after gaining only 56 yards in a humbling loss at St. Louis a week earlier.

Despite losing starting cornerback Tracy Porter to a neck injury early in the game, New Orleans held Tampa Bay (4-4) without a touchdown until Josh Freeman hit Kellen Winslow with 5:33 left.

Freeman had 256 yards passing, but was routinely pressured and plagued by untimely overthrows.
