Saints fall to Jets 26-20



East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Ivory gashed his old team for 139 rushing yards with a touchdown and Nick Folk continued his perfect season with four field goals, as the New York Jets earned a 26-20 win over New Orleans to hand the Saints just their second loss of the season.

Ivory spent his first three NFL seasons with the Saints and joined the Jets in an April trade. He led a Jets rushing attack that compiled 198 yards.

Geno Smith also ran for a score and threw for 115 yards on 8-of-19 passing for New York (5-4), which will head into its bye week with a winning record. The Jets were coming off an ugly 49-9 loss at Cincinnati last week and have not lost two in a row this season.

Drew Brees threw for 382 yards with a pair of touchdowns, but was also picked off twice in defeat. He was without the inactive wide receiver Marques Colston because of a knee injury and lost electric running back Darren Sproles to a concussion early in the first quarter.

Jimmy Graham caught nine passes for 116 yards and both scores for the Saints (6-2), whose lone losses have come on the road against AFC East foes. New Orleans dropped a 30-27 decision at New England in Week 6.
