Brees’ TD Pass Lifts Saints Over Cowboys 26-20 in OT

Drew Brees hit C.J. Spiller with a short pass that the running back turned into an 80-yard touchdown -- the 400th of the Saints quarterback's career -- on the second play of overtime, and New Orleans won for the first time this season, 26-20 over the injury-decimated Cowboys on Monday night.

Brees, who missed New Orleans' previous game because of a bruised rotator cuff in his right (throwing) shoulder, completed 33 of 41 throws for 359 yards and two TDs in his return.

Mark Ingram gained 126 yards from scrimmage on a combination of runs and short passes, and Khiry Robinson had a 1-yard touchdown run for New Orleans (1-3).
