METAIRIE, La. — Newton’s third law of motion states, basically, that for every action, there is a reaction of equal and opposite force.

Taken in the context of football, a dynamic and powerful offense can help lead to a tough and rugged defense.

On the other hand, a weak and sieve-like defense can help lead to an overburdened and overwhelmed offense.
For those who follow the New Orleans Saints, you might recognize the latter formula.

New Orleans’ defense is on a historically dreadful tear, on pace to allow the most yards in NFL history (7,595) by nearly 800 yards while it’s on the road to giving up the most points (494) in franchise history by seven points.

And yet, those on offense said they don’t feel any more pressure to score than they normally do.

“We’ve always won games 40-thirdytsomething,” quarterback Drew Brees said Thursday. “The way I look at it is we’re a 30-40 point a game offense. So, regardless of what’s happening on the defensive side of the ball, I know that our execution needs to be what our standard is.”

However, heading into Monday night’s home game against Philadelphia (3-4), the 2-5 Saints know the template to win or lose thanks to Sunday’s lopsided loss at Denver, when New Orleans managed just 252 total yards while giving up 530.

It's nice of him to say so but it's also BS. The defense horrible because the players can't tackle, cover, pass rush or stop the run.

They weren't to blame for the first 4 losses. I think we only lost by 8 points or less in those games, but the Denver game was a different story.....
