Brees Sharp as Saints Beat Cardinals
CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Drew Brees led New Orleans to a touchdown on his only series Sunday night, and the Saints beat the Arizona Cardinals 17-10 in the Hall of Fame game, officiated by a crew with college experience.

The game was canceled last year for the first time in 45 years because of the NFL's lockout of players. Labor issues also came into play in Sunday night's game -- the seven officials were replacements.

The win completed a good weekend for the Saints, who needed one after their rough offseason overshadowed by the bounty scandal. Former Saints tackle Willie Roaf was part of the six-man induction class to the hall on Saturday night.

Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb threw an interception and left with bruised ribs, hurting his chances of winning the starting job.
