Eagles' Jenkins flips off his former coach Payton

With the Saints leading the Eagles by 31 early in the fourth quarter, cameras caught a frustrated Malcolm Jenkins giving his former coach Sean Payton the finger after New Orleans went for it on fourth-and-6.

Brees after 4-TD performance: 'I'm just doing my job' (1:28)

Sean Payton addressed the idea of whether he considered taking his foot off the gas when the Saints threw a 37-yard TD pass to Alvin Kamara on fourth-and-6 with 13:15 remaining and the Saints leading the Eagles by 31: “It was gonna be a long field goal, longer than we wanted, with a potential block. We still weren't at that point in the game. You know, you just have to play in one game where you're up 31 in the fourth quarter and you lose … and that's an explosive offense. But it's an empty at-the-line call and Drew (Brees) did a good job of making the throw. You know, we're playing. And it's hard to have thoughts about what you want to do when you're still 15 minutes remaining in the game."

Saints coach Sean Payton with some unsolicited praise for Eagles/former Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins after Sunday's game: "I think the world of him. He's a tremendous player. I hate that he got out of here. That was probably as big a mistake as we've made here in 13 years. He's made up of all the right things, and he's a tremendous competitor."

Brees, Saints singe sinking Eagles, 48-7

Drew Brees passed for 363 yards and four touchdowns, and the Saints won their ninth straight with a 48-7 demolition of Philadelphia on Sunday that marked the Eagles' worst loss by far since they won last season's Super Bowl.

By stuffing Dwayne Washington for minus-3 yards on the Saints' next-to-last possession, the Eagles D/ST avoided the misfortune of the worst possible fantasy score (minus-12), finishing with minus-11. D/STs facing the Saints have scored minus-11 points in back-to-back weeks.

Drew Brees' day ended only after he reached the 30-point plateau in fantasy, as he finished with 30.5. That's the 24th such game in his career, extending his all-time record among quarterbacks. Tom Brady is second on that list, with 19.

Drew Brees' 30.5 fantasy points pushed his career total to 4,690.2, moving him past Peyton Manning (4,683.1) for second-most in fantasy football history. Only Jerry Rice (5,141.8) had more, using PPR scoring. Brees' 4,682.2 using non-PPR scoring is most by any player all-time.

The Saints simply won't take their foot off the gas pedal -- in this game or this season. Drew Brees just completed a 38-yard TD pass to Alvin Kamara on fourth-and-7 for a 45-7 lead over the Eagles early in the fourth quarter. They have now scored 141 points over the past three weeks, and we will likely see backup QB Teddy Bridgewater for the second straight week.

The Saints' absurd offensive pace continues with a 23-yard TD pass from Drew Brees to Michael Thomas to begin the second half for a 31-7 lead over the Eagles. The Saints have now scored on 5 of 6 possessions today and 16 of their last 17 (not counting end-of-game situations). Thomas has four catches for 92 yards and a TD, and he became the first player in Saints history with three straight 1,000-yard seasons to begin a career.

Brees rifles TD pass to rookie Smith (0:20)

Saints rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith is finally getting heavily involved in the offense. He has six catches for 69 yards in the first half, including a 15-yard TD. His previous career high was three catches, and he wasn't targeted at all last week. The Saints are spreading the ball around, though, as they lead Philadelphia 24-7. Second-year WR Austin Carr also has his first career TD catch. Undrafted rookie WR Keith Kirkwood has three catches for 33 yards. And first-year TE Dan Arnold has two catches for 25 yards.

The Saints have scored on all three of their possessions so far today for a 17-0 lead on the Eagles. And they have now scored on 14 straight possession, not including end-of-game situations. It looks like they're just toying with defenses at this point. Mark Ingram walked in for a 14-yard TD when the Eagles bit badly on a play fake to Alvin Kamara.

Brees hits Carr for TD in 1st quarter (0:20)

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

The Saints' defense has been picking up steam in recent weeks — and they have been dominant so far against the Eagles with two three-and-outs and a Marshon Lattimore interception in the first quarter. It was the first INT of the season for Lattimore.
