Photos: Saints beat Vikings 20-9 _lowres

Advocate staff photo by SCOTT THRELKELD -- The Minnesota Vikings were called for roughing after Minnesota Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (24) and Minnesota Vikings strong safety Robert Blanton (36) sacked New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) during the third quarter Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees didn’t know who supplexed him pro wrestling-style during his team’s 20-9 victory against the Vikings at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. When he got up and went after Vikings cornerback Robert Blanton, it’s because that was the first player Brees saw, the quarterback said after the game, which improved the Saints’ 2014 record to 1-2.
