It’s not enough to just look at the final score of 51-14 coming out of the Cincinnati Bengals’ embarrassing loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Not when the Bengals made some terrible history and the numbers are bad enough to justify someone losing a job. These are the most eye-popping numbers from the game.
21 vs. 40: The first is how many first downs the Saints had in the first half. The second, impressively, is how many plays it took.
7-of-12: The Saints’ third-down mark by the end of the game.
39:46: The Saints’ time of possession.
509: Total yardage tally for Saints.
10: The number of drives for each team.
9: The number of Saints drives that ended with scores. The game-ending cut the 10th short.
0: Written another way, the number of punts by the Saints.
22-of-25: Drew Brees’ final tally, which gunned him to 265 yards and three scores.
