The only good moment for the Saints came at the start of their win against the San Diego Chargers, when Drew Brees broke a seemingly invincible record.Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't much better. A dismal 2-3 record comes largely because of their games against the NFC East in Weeks 2, 3, and 4. The teams they beat each only have one win. However, a Saints team that just can't seem to win, despite having the top passing offense in the league.There is a glaringly obvious reason the Saints can't pull a win- the other three major categories.

According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) will be a game-time decision.Fantasy Spin:Graham sprained his ankle against the Chargers in Week 5 yet is still not 100 percent after the bye.
