Packers go into off week hurting after loss to Saints

(TSX / STATS) -- GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints are headed in opposite directions.

The Saints beat the Packers 26-17 at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

With Aaron Rodgers out with a broken collarbone and Brett Hundley making his first NFL start, the Saints (4-2) had an overwhelming quarterbacking advantage with veteran Drew Brees. At this stage of their careers, the 24-year-old Hundley is more physically gifted than the 38-year-old Brees. But Brees, his two early interceptions notwithstanding, played the superior game. His throws were on time and on the money, and he never seemed the least bit confused by the Packers' game plan.
