Saints keeping Brees clean
 
METAIRIE — The last time the Saints lost a game, Drew Brees took a beating, and the entire offense took it personally.

Brees has not been sacked since, and the Saints have not lost since, either, winning three straight.

Brees said after Wednesday night’s practice that only some of the changes made where schematic, such as using running backs or tight ends to give more help blocking as needed. There were also elements of pride and determination involved coming off an Oct. 30 loss in St. Louis in which Brees was sacked six times.

“It’s a combination of both,” Brees said. “Anytime you have a game like that ... obviously it was a performance that not any of us were proud of — you go back and you say ‘These are corrections we have to make.’”

This week, Saints blockers will be tested again by Detroit, which ranks 10th in the NFL in sacks with 29.

The Giants came in ranked number one in the league in sacks

Offensive line has really stepped up and when we work a running game in their, even slightly it gives brees the extra couple of seconds, congrats o line

O-line has stepped up big time, great job by these guys. Great to have Strief back and we traded up with DLP.

Yep I was really glad to see how well they played. The Giants game was the one I was really worried about down this stretch

Keep Brees clean, allow him time to throw and/or make adjustments, and rush 100+ yards = W!

Much better job picking up blitzes by everyone. Ingram has really improved in that dept. I watched him make a couple of outstanding blocks.

They're hosing Brees down daily and washing behind his ears...

That game where Brees got pounded in the ground was the O-lines wake up call. I've noticed how tight they have been playing also, they have been very stingy and more aggressive. I like it.

The Giants came in ranked number one in the league in sacks, and left with none.
