New Orleans Saints host Indianapolis Colts Sunday

Staff reports
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton looks on from the sideline during his team's game against the Chicago Bears.

The New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts will meet for the first time since they tangled in Super Bowl XLIV.

The Colts will enter the Louisiana Superdome - where the championship banner hangs - Sunday night.

Saints cornerback Tracy Porter, a Port Allen native, returned an interception 74 yards for a touchdown to lift the Saints to a 31-17 win in the Super Bowl.

Last season, both teams reached the playoffs only to be ousted in the opening round.

The Saints have started the 2011 season with a 4-2 record. They are tied for the NFC South lead following a loss to Tampa Bay last week.

Meanwhile, the Colts have fallen on hard times. Without New Orleans native Peyton Manning at quarterback, the Colts have stumbled to a league-worst 0-6 record.
