The New Orleans Saints have struggled quite a bit to this point defensively in 2015. As a matter of fact, before Week 14, it had pretty much been a disaster on that side of the ball for New Orleans. The lone bright spot? Well, that would have to be Delvin Breaux.

Via Pro Football Focus:

#Saints CB Delvin Breaux has allowed just 1 receiving yard over the past three games.

That's simply an unreal statistic. Breaux has shut down quite a few big-named receivers, but to be a cornerback in the NFL and give up exactly one yard over three games? That just places you on another level. Breaux is probably the best cornerback that very few people are talking about to this point.

Can Breaux help fuel a strong finish to 2015 for the New Orleans defense? Don't bet against it.

People will know who he is next year.

I'll bet the house that unless he gets hurt he'll end up in the pro-bowl.

If he played here in Dallas for the Cowgirls, he'd be a household name by now.

Re: Delvin Breaux is giving a new meaning to 'shutdown cornerback'

this is what i like about seasons like this. like might be stretching it a bit. A silver lining on a turd of a defense that might just be turning things around and showing signs of hope for next year. Breaux aint alone. Rob leaving the out house might be the best thing to happen to this unit in the past 3 years.

Agreed.

This defense has pieces to build around as well as vets to lend support next season

Re: Delvin Breaux is giving a new meaning to 'shutdown cornerback'

I am going to say it now, Delvin Breaux is the best CB in the NFL at this time. Where this guy is now compared to where he was in week 1 is just phenomenal.
