The New Orleans Saints started the year at 0-2, but they finally got in the win column this past weekend when they topped the Carolina Panthers on the road by a score of 34-13. They were five-point dogs in the game, but they showed up to play, while the Panthers didn’t. Drew Brees had a very solid game in the win as he hit 22 of 29 passes for 213 and three TDs, with no INTs. Brees (109.7 QBR) has now thrown for 867 yards with six TDs and no INTs on the year and will be taking on a Miami defense that has really struggled against the pass this year so far. Michael Thomas has been his favorite target so far as he has 17 catches for 221 yards and a TD on the year.
The Saints have been a mess on the defensive side of the ball for years and this year has been no different so far, but they really had a good showing against the Panthers as they held them to just 288 yards of total offense, including just 156 yards through the air. The Saints also picked off three passes in the game. It was one of the better defensive efforts that they have had in a long time and know they look to duplicate that against a Miami offense that has struggled so far. If they show up and play defense like they did against the Panthers, then they have a good shot at winning the game.
The Saints have been very good on offense so far this year as they come in ranked 7th in the league in total offense (378.3 ypg), 6th in passing (281.7 ypg), 18th in rushing (96.7 ypg) and 11th in scoring at 24.3 ppg. On defense, they have been poor as always as they come in ranked 31st in total yards allowed (437.7 ypg), 30th against the pass (311.0 ypg) and 24th vs the run (126.7 ypg), while allowing 26.0 ppg, which is 30th in the league.
The Saints are coming off their best effort of this season, a 34-13 victory at previously unbeaten Carolina last week.
New Orleans spotted the Panthers an early field goal and took the lead for good on a Drew Brees touchdown pass to wide receiver Michael Thomas late in the first quarter.
Leading 17-6 at halftime, the Saints then iced the game by scoring the first touchdown out of the locker room.
On the day, New Orleans outgained Carolina 362-288 and won the turnover battle 3-0. In fact, the Saints have yet to turn the ball over this season.
Brees connected on 22 of 29 throws for 220 yards and three touchdowns, the ground game produced 149 yards and the defense recorded three picks and four sacks.
New Orleans now ranks seventh in the league in total offense, averaging 378 yards per game.
