Miami Gardens, Fla. — The New Orleans Saints have won Super Bowl XLIV.
They beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 here at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees was 32-of-39 for 288 yards and two touchdowns.
But it was the big 75-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Tracy Porter that sealed the deal.
“I studied and knew their tendencies,” Porter said. “I just jumped around and the ball went right into my hands.”
Porter’s teammate Darren Sharper, who was on the Green Bay Packers as a rookie when they lost to Denver, said this was a game that nobody had faith in the team except for the team.
