In a matchup of the last two Super Bowl champions, the New Orleans Saints took a 20-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night in the Superdome.

Quarterback Drew Brees, shown above, led New Orleans (5-3) with 305 yards passing and touchdown throws to Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

Darren Sharper recovered a fumble and Leigh Torrence intercepted a Ben Roethlisberger pass late in the game to seal the victory over the Steelers (5-2).

An official for Guinness World Records counted at least 17,777 fans wearing costumes in the Superdome, making the game the largest recorded Halloween gathering.

The nationally-televised game drew an 11.8 overnight rating and 18 share to top the fourth game of the World Series, which had a 10.4/16. Staff Photo by Michael Tortorich
