As week four arrived and the big Monday Night Football game on Sept. 30, 2013, no-one really expected both the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins to be sitting at 3-0. But, both teams were as they met in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and only one team could end the night, still with a flawless record.
The Saints ended up staying undefeated and advancing to 4-0 with a 38-17 demolition of the Dolphins.
New Orleans came out by taking the ball first and just made it look far too easy. They drove down the field in just six plays and scored a touchdown on a five-yard run by Darren Sproles. The Dolphins came right back with a good drive of their own, but it stalled and ended with a 34-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis.
In the second quarter, the Saints opened it up. It began with another good drive and a Jimmy Graham 27-yard touchdown as he was falling backward to the ground. The Dolphins responded with another long drive that ended with a five-yard touchdown run by Lamar Miller.
The Saints had too much time though as the man of the night, Darren Sproles, caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees with just a minute remaining. New Orleans went into the half up 21-10 on the Dolphins.
The third quarter also belonged to New Orleans and mostly to the tight ends. Benjamin Watson caught a four-yard touchdown from Brees and less than 90 seconds later, Graham caught his second touchdown of the night, but this one was from 43-yards out.
At the end of three, Miami was driving but still down 35-10.
The Dolphins charged back to start the fourth quarter and finished off a pretty good drive with a three-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill to Charles Clay for the touchdown. The fourth quarter was young and the Saints were soon up 38-10 after a 29-yard Garrett Hartley field goal.
From there, there were two more interceptions thrown by Tannehill, and the Saints working on running out the clock. With that, the Saints moved on to 4-0 with the win.
