New Orleans Saints offensive player grades vs. Dallas Cowboys

Give the offense a ton of credit for going down the field and setting up what should have been the game winning field goal, then turning around in overtime and making the big play despite a back breaking miss in regulation. The team found a way to win and that’s what’s most important. It wasn’t always perfect for the offense, though, and often times it was ugly. The offensive...

Saints offensive player grades vs. Bucs

For the second consecutive week the Saints failed to break the 20 point barrier on offense. This was despite two takeaways in Bucs territory and a missed 52 yard field goal that gave them great field position. The fact that the Saints ran for 104 yards is shocking because of how bad they were on the ground prior to the fourth quarter. Ball security remains a big issue against the...
