METAIRIE — Every time the Saints harped on the turnovers and penalties they committed in their latest outing, they stopped short of using one operative word.

No one could describe them as “costly,” because they weren’t. Not even close.

En route to a sixth straight victory, New Orleans (11-3) turned the ball over twice in its own territory and committed six penalties for 65 yards, including one holding penalty that wiped out a long scoring pass to Robert Meachem.

The Saints still won by 22 points, proving they are playing well enough in the final weeks of the regular season to win big even when they make some big mistakes.

“Each game is different, but it is encouraging that we had those mistakes and were still able to come away with a big win,” said Saints receiver Lance Moore, who had two TD catches in the 42-20 victory over the Vikings. “We just need to put it together in a complete manner. ... We can get better.”

If the Saints do get better, they’ll be tough to beat on Monday night, when they host Atlanta (9-5) with the NFC South Division crown on the line.

Yep. Even if the failclowns are overrated (especially their bus driver of a QB) they are much better than the viqueens. We don't need to give them any extra opportunities.

Hopefully we got all of the bad stuff out of our system. I think Drew needs a passer rating of 158.3. Wouldn't that be just PERFECT now?!!

It's been said before that winning the turnover battle will win the war. Well said.
