NFL Report Cards: Team-by-Team Grades for Week 8

New Orleans Saints: B

This Week's Result: Saints 52, Giants 49

Offense (A+): Drew Brees (505 yards, seven touchdown passes) practically duplicated his 2009-2011 highlight reel in one game.

Defense (D+): The Giants were actually 1-of-8 on third downs, so the Saints defense did something right. For most of the afternoon, however, the unit committed holding penalties and fell for the same Odell Beckham Jr. crisscross play at the goal line each time the Giants ran it.

Special Teams/Coaching (B-): Kicker Kai Forbath and returner Marcus Murphy won the game at the end. On the downside, the Saints committed 12 penalties for 93 yards; Brandon Browner now has 15 penalties for the year, an amazing total after eight games. While the three-game winning streak has been impressive, the Saints have faced several opponents eager to blunder games away in the last month, and they have just barely beaten most of them.

Looking Ahead: The Titans, then the Redskins. Once the most dangerous 1-4 team in the NFL, the Saints may soon be the weakest 6-4 team in the NFL.

Anything can be accomplished

We absolutely destroyed the Giants 48-27 back in week 12 of 2011, yet there they were 7 weeks later beating the patriots in the Superbowl.

Re: NFL Report Cards: Team-by-Team Grades for Week 8

Yeah, that article is a little negative. I prefer to see our Saints a team that's coming together at the right time.

I'll tell you one thing...this team is fun to watch.
