Monday night against Miami, a Brees

Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes, two to tight end Jimmy Graham as the Saints beat Miami 38-17 Monday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Brees was 30 of 39 for 413 yards as the Saints easily won a battle of NFL unbeatens.

Brees threw touchdown passes of 27 and 43 yards to Graham. In the second quarter, with :55 to play before half, Brees connected on a 13 yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles to give the Saints a 21-10 halftime lead.

Sproles caught 7 passes for 114 yards.

The Saints are 4-0 for the first time since they won the Super Bowl in the 2009 season.

“The ball is bouncing our way,” said Brees. “We are playing good football.”

The Saints play at Chicago Sunday.
