Saints 35, Chargers 34

Brees back big

SAN DIEGO — Drew Brees returned to Qualcomm Stadium, where he spent his first five NFL seasons, and led the Saints to a rally thanks to some Chargers mistakes. "This was as much a team game, a team win, as I could ever remember," Brees said. San Diego led 34-21 before Saints defensive end Darryl Tapp and linebacker Nate Stupar recovered fumbles on consecutive drives, both setting up New Orleans touchdowns.
