Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo say they'll resist making major changes despite an 0-2 start.
The Saints entered the season defiant in the face of bounty sanctions that included a season-long suspension of coach Sean Payton. After the sluggish start, expectations remain high following three straight playoff appearances.
Kromer says two eight-point losses mean the Saints just need to be nine points better per game.
To bridge that gap, some glaring problems need correcting.
The Saints are last in the NFL in yards allowed with 922, and tied for last in points allowed with 75.
The offense ranks third, but late turnovers have sealed each loss.
The Saints say they're focused only on beating Kansas City this Sunday, and improving each week.
