10:08 am on 9 January 2012

The American football side the New Orleans Saints have romped to a 45-28 victory over the Detroit Lions in a National Football League wild-card shootout.

The Saints, Super Bowl champions two years ago, have raced into the post-season as the NFL's hottest team and rode that momentum to a ninth straight win to set up a divisional showdown against the San Francisco 49ers this weekend.
