It’s been a familiar theme for New Orleans this season so stop me if you’ve heard this already, but The Saints are struggling again on defense. Check out this report from NOLA.com:
“Through nine games, the Saints defense is allowing about 6.5 yards per play, the second-worst mark in post-merger NFL history, according to Pro Football Reference. The only team to do worse through the opening nine games? The 2012 Saints.”
The Saints are also last in Football Outsider’s Defense-Adjusted Value over Average. This year’s numbers are worse than the 2014 Saints and 2012 Saints. It’s obvious the Saints proudly embrace their storied history of defensive failure and fortunately for us Falcons fans, it doesn’t look like it’ll be getting any better for them anytime soon. And that Ladies & Gentleman, is reason #5,629 why the Saints suck!
