NASHVILLE, Tenn. — New Orleans Saints cornerback Jabari Greer said his defense doesn’t subscribe to the old bend-but-don’t-break theory.

Never has, never will.

“We defend every blade of grass,” Greer said Sunday afternoon. “We’ve never been a bend-but-don’t-break defense. We’re going to fight and protect our turf.”

They did Sunday, giving up big plays and chunks of yardage but keeping the Tennessee Titans out of the end zone on their final two drives to preserve a 22-17 victory in LP Field.

The Titans reached the Saints’ 24 and 5 on their last two drives, but were turned away both times — the first on fourth-and-inches with 2:18 left and the second when Tennessee had two snaps from point-blank range with seven seconds remaining.

Three hours later, the Saints (10-3) clinched at least a wild-card playoff berth when the Chicago Bears dropped a 13-10 overtime decision to the Denver Broncos. The Saints retained a two-game lead over the Atlanta Falcons in the race for the NFC South title with three games to play.

Then why do they line up 10 yards off the WR's?

It's like the bump and run is a lost art for us.
