This is not a joke: Saints have top 10 defense

Even after a day where they didn’t exactly light it up against Buffalo, the Saints still have the league’s top-rated offense.
They’re No. 2 in the running game and sixth in the passing game. Perhaps more significantly, the Saints have a top 10 defense. Seriously. According to the rankings the NFL sent out this morning, New Orleans ranks No. 10 in overall defense. The Saints are fifth against the run and tied for 22nd against the pass.
The Saints are the only NFC South team with units even close to the top 10 in offense or defense.
