No run game? No problem.

Slow first half defensively? Didn't matter.

The New Orleans Saints never seem to go by the book when playing in primetime. But it all seemed to be clicking Monday night as they put away the Miami Dolphins 38-17.

The Saints extended their winning streak on "Monday Night Football" to nine games the longest active streak in the NFL en route to improving to 4-0 this season.

And everyone seemed to have a piece of the win.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees spread the ball around to eight teammates completing 30-of-39 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns. The defense forced four turnovers two of which led to touchdowns and sacked quarterback Ryan Tannehill four times including three in the third quarter.

The Saints struggled to run the ball for the second consecutive game gaining only 71 yards (10 in the first half). But with the passing game clicking they didn't need it.

Running back Darren Sproles caught seven passes for 114 yards and a touchdown while rushing four times for 28 yards and a touchdown. Miami (3-1) attempted to slow down tight end Jimmy Graham by double teaming him early but he had his third straight 100-yard receiving game and scored two touchdowns
