Medias been messing this up for some time now. The offense usually has no problems on the road, its the defense that has been falling apart for 7 years.
But this year Brees , and yes the offense , have been stopped, turnovers, or faling apart on the road, and the defense has saved them.
I was shocked when Brees missed a pass before. I can almost count them hes so dang accurate. Amazing really, but for some reason now I get worried when our offense is in an Brees is throwing. I dont know what it is.
That's true but I chalk some of that up to the teams we've had to play on the road this season. We've played some particularly tough defenses, and specifically some really tough front 7s.

The Jets have a great front 7. Tampa has a ton of talent in their front 7 even if they're not well coached. Carolina probably has the best front 7 in football. The Rams have an amazing d-line even if the rest of the defense is meh.

And then there's the Patriots, they may not have a particularly talented D but Belichick is still one of the best defensive minds in football and always has his defenses playing above their heads. And of course, the Seahawks with the #1 overall defense and the best pass coverage in the league this
year.

Just my opinion but when you factor all that in, I believe the Saints 3-5 "road woes" have been blown out of proportion for the purposes of media drama. I think the offensive troubles this year have more to do with who we've played than anything else.
