NEW ORLEANS

Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes, extending his NFL record streak to 51 games, and Patrick Robinson returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown on Monday to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 28-13 victory over Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.

In a matchup of struggling teams, the Eagles drove for first downs inside the New Orleans 10 three times, but only came away with two field goals. In fact, they were outscored in those situations, because Robinson took a tipped pass for a New Orleans touchdown, tying the record for the longest interception return in franchise history.

Brees threw a 1-yard scoring pass to Marques Colston late in the first half, then tacked on a 6-yard touchdown to Jimmy Graham in the third quarter after the Eagles had cut a 21-3 halftime deficit to 21-13.

Both teams came into the game desperate for a win, after starting the season with high expectations.

Philadelphia had lost three straight, turning up the heat even more on longtime coach Andy Reid.

The Saints were coming off a dismal 34-14 loss at Denver, dropping their record to 2-5.
