American Football: Bush puts New Orleans on brink of Super Bowl

Reggie Bush contributed two touchdowns and more than 200 yards as the New Orleans Saints brushed aside the visiting Arizona Cardinals on Saturday 45-14 to reach the NFC Conference Championship game.

The Saints cast off a two-week break and a three-game losing streak at the end of the regular season to justify their top seeding in the NFC to oust last year's Super Bowl finalists in the NFC Play-Offs divisional round at the Superdome in New Orleans. The Indianapolis Colts, meanwhile, overpowered the Baltimore Ravens in a 20-3 victory to book their place in next week's AFC Championship game.
