2010 Super Bowl Recap:

After the Colts took a 10-0 first quarter lead thanks to a 38-yard Matt Stover field goal and a Pierre Garcon 19-yard touchdown, the Saints added two Gerrett Hartley field goals in the second quarter to cut Indianapolis’ lead to 10-6 at halftime.

New Orleans proceeded to score on its first possession of the second half when running back Pierre Thomas caught a 16-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Drew Brees to give the Saints their first lead of the game. The lead was short-lived, however, as Joseph Addai scored on a 4-yard touchdown run half way through the third quarter to give the Colts’ a 17-13 advantage. A Garrett Hartley 47-yard field goal at the end of the quarter made the score 17-16 heading into the fourth.

In the final quarter, Jeremy Shockey caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Brees to give the Saints a 24-17 lead following a 2-point conversation by Lance Moore. The final nail in the coffin came when Tracy Porter intercepted Manning and returned it 74-yards for a touchdown to give New Orleans a 31-17 win.

After completing 32 of his 39 pass attempts for 288 yards and two touchdowns, Brees was named Super Bowl XLIV MVP.
