The defense of the Saints has gotten off to a slow start allowing 30 points per game which is 9th worst in the NFL.

“We've just got to eliminate those big plays because it starts from everything before, like eyes and communication. It's really just small things turning into big things, we've just got to eliminate that and we'll be alright."
A big thing is that there is a communication issue in the secondary which has given up any eye-popping 15 touchdown passes in the first 5 games.
“We have to clean that up and just be on one page so we can go out there and play fast,” explained Lattimore. “A lot of plays is just communication and eyes. Small things that become big things like I said, if we fix that we'll dominate.”
