Drew Brees completed 32 of 40 passes for 412 yards and five touchdowns Sunday as the New Orleans Saints eased to a 42-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minn.
Brees threw two touchdown passes to Lance Moore, who caught five passes for 91 yads to lead a balanced receiving attack for the Saints (11-3), who clinched a share of the NFC South with their sixth straight victory. New Orleans can clinch the division outright with a win over Atlanta on Christmas Eve.
Chris Ivory added 74 rushing yards on 18 carries for New Orleans.
Brees also threw touchdown passes to Jimmy Graham, Darren Sproles and John Gilmore. Brees now has 37 touchdown passes and 4,780 passing yards on the season. He remains on pace to break Dan Marino's NFL record of 5,084 passing yards in a season, set in 1984.
Minnesota dropped to 2-12 with the loss.
