It’s really awesome to think about because up until recently I would have said that this seems like a better overall D than we had in 2009 but probably not as opportunistic. Now it seems like they are just clearly the better D.

add to that that there are no 2009 Favre led Vikings in the NFC with us this year and you have to like our chances although it all hinges on a rib or 4 at this point.

Give that dude credit for hustle.
It was a great hustle. I thought at first it was cos he wasn't fast. But on replay, he didn't look as slow and someone pointed that if he hadn't kept looking back, he may have made it in.

In the Denver game; the Bronco's Offense had exactly four (4) snaps, for the entire game, on the Saints' side of the fifty. The first snap came at 9:03 into the third quarter after an interception of Taysom and subsequent INT return set them up on the New Orleans 40-yard line. In those four snaps the Broncos gained a total of 1-yard of forward progress and kicked a Field Goal from the 39-yard line.

So there you have it; Saints Defense yielded one (1) yard of home turf to the opposition for the entire game.

Dat's domination.

In the last 4 games

Saints have generated 12 Turnovers

Recorded at least two interceptions 4 games in a row

Held the QB to an average rating of 40
How many seasons went by where it seemed like we didn't even have 12 takeaways on the year? What an amazing improvement. Props to Loomis, Payton, DA, Glenn, Nielsen, Hodges, Young, Wilhoite, Giunta, Robinson, and, of course, the players!

And how many times in previous seasons would this same scenario equal in a huge upset loss and the QB has a career day? Way too often and usually spells disaster for our team but this time....the team played like we all expected them to play. That’s comfort for a fan lol

Yeah I aint seeing one of those over achieving teams this year. Got to handle business with lesser foes. losing to Vikings messed us up from playing 2 teams I know we could of handled last year, (49ers and Packers), hence why the NFCCG was so 1 sided.
