Daniel throws two TDs, Saints pound Raiders

Chase Daniel tossed two touchdown passes in 20 preseason victory over the Oakland Raiders.

Daniel spelled Drew Brees after three series and completed 9-of-18 passes for 191 yards. Brees was sharp as well, engineering scoring drives on each of the Saints' first two possessions, which were capped by rushing touchdowns from Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas. He went 15-of-23 for 189 yards.

Brees' counterpart, Jason Campbell, threw for 150 yards on 12-of-17 passing. He connected with Derek Hagan for a 35-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Hagan had six receptions for 121 yards.

Taiwan Jones, a fourth-round pick out of Eastern Washington University, provided a second-half spark for the Raiders, rushing for 81 yards and a score.

Sebastian Janikowski booted two field goals for Oakland. The first -- a 57- yarder -- came in the second quarter, while the second gave the Raiders a 20-17 third-quarter lead.

The Saints scored the final 23 points of the game, however, as Daniel tossed touchdown passes to Tory Humphrey and Adrian Arrington and Joique Bell ran for a score. New Orleans attempted and converted two-point conversions on their final two touchdowns.

New Orleans kicker Garrett Hartley made a 33-yard field goal in the second quarter.
