So far no turnovers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I just noticed an interesting stat. Through the first three weeks the Saints are the only team in the NFL to have not turned the ball over. Zero interceptions and zero fumbles. 14-2 Baby!...

Re: So far no turnovers

Yes, no turnovers and we haven't been in a close game yet this year. It's been weird lately.

As long as we are staying aggressive on offense and playing hard then I am certainly okay with 0 turnovers.

Re: So far no turnovers

If you would have showed me this stat today & not knowing the team record, I would have been inclined to believe that we were 3-0.

Keep that momentum going into London.

Re: So far no turnovers

blaming turnovers is an easy way to justify losses.

Losses are personal

Re: So far no turnovers

What is even harder to believe is that we were 0-2 with no turnovers. This is totally counter to statistical trends.

Re: So far no turnovers

The major difference Sunday is we didn't have any turnovers and got 3.
Don't forget we had only 1 penalty for 10 yards too.

Actually it was a bad call while the game was still questionable...
But you got the "Garbage" part right.

Re: So far no turnovers

Stats don't matter, BUT...
I assume that the very late 4th down we did not convert counts as a TO, our first of the season
