BALTIMORE (NBC33) - Ray Rice rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown as the Ravens snapped the Saints six game winning streak on Sunday. The Baltimore running back also caught five passes for 80 yards and a score.
Drew Brees threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns but the New Orleans offense couldn't score on their final two possessions to take lead. Late in the fourth quarter facing a fourth and eight, a deflected Brees pass was intercepted by Baltimore defensive lineman Cory Redding. The Ravens defense held the Saints rushing attack in check allowing only 27 rushing yards on the day.
The Saints (10-4) next game is on Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons.
