Re: Improving Defense

if we only give up 88 yards rushing, who cares that 50 was on one play
Let's talk about an IMPORTANT defensive stat: 15.5 Point-per-game-alllowed vs. two division foes.
Oh yeah, 7 of those were actually defensive. Make that 12.0 PPGA

Re: Improving Defense

Well defense help win it again. If Offense would have played the whole game like they did the last drive Saints would have had a blow out against the Bucs. Lesson learned now fix it and let's move on.

Re: Improving Defense

Defense didn't help win it. The defense did win it.

Re: Improving Defense

If you had told me in preseason the offense would be this out-of-sync in the first two games, I would've said we'd be 0-2.

Considering the injuries and the kind of offensive talent they've had to play against, allowing 12 PPG is an amazing start.

Also, if you like stats:

10th in yards allowed
6th in points allowed
4th in 1st downs allowed
9th in 3rd down percentage
5th in turnovers forced
