Saints Nation: Saints' Offensive Player Grades vs. Chiefs

This was a strange one. The Saints' offense largely looked pretty good leading up to a 24-6 lead and then nothing.

It went from effective to watching LSU's offense against Alabama's defense in the national title game all over again. What happened to this...

Drew Brees Going Where Only One Man Has Gone Before
