I have watched the Bears a lot these last few weeks. The operative question is... where are they (Bears) going to get offense from? Oh, that's right... Trubisky will be back in at QB. Whoop-te-do!

Saints Defense has been playing lights out. They have given up 1 TD total in the last 16 quarters and 7 FG's.

A little bit of breathing room is great.

Must beat the Falcons this weekend. They will be out for blood.
I was just thinking this. I wonder what the record is for not allowing a touchdown. I know we prolly aren’t close at all but this is a major feat in the modern nfl where everything favors the offenses.

(Post below is not correct, but I won't just delete it, still impressive.)

We are close......

Saints are at four game now. If they can hold the Falcons to no TD's, they will tie a record held by the Steelers, who have gone five games without a TD twice, in 1976 and 2000.

The record is five consecutive games not allowing a TD.

  • Most Consecutive Games without Allowing a Touchdown, since 1935, 5
Pittsburgh Steelers: 1976
Pittsburgh Steelers: 2000


  • Most Consecutive Quarters without Allowing a Touchdown, since 1935, 22
Pittsburgh Steelers: 1976

The Saints are not at four games without allowing a TD. They are at 2 games (Falcons and at Broncos). The 49ers (3 games back) scored a TD.
