It was hardly a secret that the New Orleans Saints owned the most dangerous passing attack in the NFL entering today’s game. Today they proved they can run it with the best of them and play defense, as well. The Saints improved to 3-0 on the season with a 27-7 win over the Bills in Orchard Park and now stand alone atop the NFC South standings with a clean 3-0 record. The Saints scored 20 unanswered points today and improved their fourth quarter scoring to 38-2 in the team’s favor, a large reason behind the unblemished record.
“I’m pleased,” said Head Coach Sean Payton. “I’m not into style points, I care that we won the game.”
RB Pierre Thomas, who did not have a carry in the first half of the game, came on in the second half and erupted for a career-high 126 yards on the ground with two rushing touchdowns and the Saints’ defense didn’t allow the Bills inside the 25 yard line, with the exception of a well-executed fake field goal that marked the Bills’ only scoring of the afternoon.
