MIAMI GARDENS, FLA—

It was over when...
With 6 minutes remaining in overtime Saints Running Back Reggie Bush went on a screen pass, caught the ball from Quarterback Drew Brees and entered the endzone to give the Saints it's first Super Bowl in in history.

Game Ball
Drew Brees booked himself as a first class hall of fame ballot with his MVP Performence in Super Bowl XLIV. Including breaking several records. He completed 48 of 59 passes for a completion percentage of 81% and threw for 468 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Key Stat
The Saints kept the Colts Quarterback Peyton Manning to just 189 yards throughout three quarters. This was the changing point as soon as he broke out he tore the Saints defense up.

Noteworthy
Robert Mathis sacked Drew Brees 3 times and recorded 7 tackles and a forced fumble. ... Jonathan Vilma had 7 tackles and the Saints lone sack.

Story
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The ultimate underdogs, they ain't. Not anymore. The Saints are Super Bowl champions now.

Drew Brees, Sean Payton and the entire city behind them overcame odds as the under dogs took home the Title in one of Sports Most Thrilling games.

It was the first Super Bowl to go to overtime. Some say Breesus was with the Saints as they won the coin toss at the start of the game and in Overtime in which they drove down the field to put the game away with a 1 yard screen pass to Reggie Bush.

"Four years ago, who ever thought this would be happening when 85 percent of the city was under water from (Hurricane) Katrina," Brees said. "Most people not knowing if New Orleans would ever come back or if the organization and the team would come back. ... This is the culmination of that belief and that faith."

The Saints (18-1) won three postseason games this winter after winning only two in the previous 42 years. They beat Dallas, Minnesota and Indianapolis (17-2) -- all division winners.

"Everybody back in New Orleans gets a piece of this trophy," Brees said.

"I think I could kiss him," owner Tom Benson said.

"Look around the stadium," linebacker Scott Fujita said. "It was like 6- or 7-to-1 (Saints fans). The black and gold just poured into Miami.

"The whole world was behind us. This was bigger than just a game for the Saints. We are the world's team."
