NEW ORLEANS - The Eagles got off to a terrible start against New Orleans Monday night at the Superdome.

Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson, running back Chris Ivory and wide receiver Marques Colston all scored touchdowns in helping the Saints take a 21-3 halftime lead.

Robinson returned Eagles quarterback Michael Vick's ninth interception of the season 99 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. Ivory added a 22-yard TD run through a porous Eagles defense and quarterback Drew Brees hit Colston with an 8-yard touchdown pass just before halftime.

Brees has now thrown at least one TD pass in an NFL-record 51 consecutive games.

The Eagles' offense moved the ball well, but could only manage a 22-yard field goal by place-kicker Alex Henery - his 12th straight field goal - in the first half.

Running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 102 yards on 12 carries in the first half. Bryce Brown added 49 yards on four carries.

Right tackle Todd Herremans left the game at the end of the first quarter with an ankle/foot injury. Demetress Bell replaced him.
