Saints vs. Bills: 6 and (Stills the) 1

I’d like to thank the New Orleans Saints for deciding not to do what I had feared, which is make me sweat it out fresh off the bye week against an inferior team like the Bills. Yes the Bills are much improved and were expected to put up a fight. But the Saints are better. Waaaay better, in fact. And they were playing at home which is also known as Sean Payton’s playground...

Saints line working to clean up troubling trends

Although Drew Brees again has the Saints' offense ranked near the top of the NFL, the unit has been struggling with a couple of troublesome trends.

Meanwhile, New Orleans ranks 25th in rushing, averaging 85.3 yards...

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Bills

Another opponent held under 20 points, sign me up. Remember, this defense doesn't have to be all world. They just have to get a couple sacks, force some turnovers, and give the team a chance to win. But they've been doing so much more than that this season and this game was no exception. While it wasn't perfect at all times, it was yet another very strong performance...
