Recap

The New Orleans Saints overcame two turnovers and put on a strong defensive effort for a 23-10 road win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at EverBank Field.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees extended his streak of games with a touchdown pass to 31, passing Dan Marino for the third-longest streak in NFL history. His lone touchdown pass Sunday was a 1-yard strike to tight end Jimmy Graham, who had a team-high 10 catches for 132 yards.

Jacksonville (1-3) continued to struggle on offense after entering the game with 29 points, the second-fewest in the league. The Jaguars managed only 274 total yards and were shut out in the second half.

Maurice Jones-Drew was held to 84 rushing yards after topping 100 in each of his three previous games against NFC opponents.

Veteran kicker John Kasay accounted for all the scoring in the second half, booting three field goals to preserve the Saints' lead.
