O-line performed ok. Gave up 2 sacks, though Brees probably held the ball too long for 1 of them. That said, give most of the credit to Brees, who stepped up in the pocket, as usual, and avoided pressure.
1 sack was completely on Brees. Bushrod blocked Cole away from the pocket and Brees ran 2 or 3 steps backward right into his arms. The second he held too long. The OL blocked well and didn't get beat at the LOS on running plays as much as last week; they only had 1 horrible run play, the draw to Bush.
