But three consecutive double-digit romps can't be denied.

The New Orleans Saints are on the come right now.

Their zany 52-38 victory against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was their third consecutive win by two or more touchdowns. To use a Sean Payton phrase, that's significant.

In a league where one-score games are increasingly the norm, the Saints are trucking people. They aren't just winning. They are pole-axing people.



At 3-2, they are not the best team in the league. But they are unquestionably the hottest. And the rest of the league needs to start taking them seriously.



"The sky's the limit," said defensive end Cam Jordan, who spearheaded the dominant defensive effort with two sacks, two tackles for losses, three passes defensed and an interception for a touchdown. "We've always had an offense that's going to put up 30-plus points a game. And our defense is finally playing how they should be. Today we were rolling."

Since dropping their first two games, the Saints have outscored the Panthers, Dolphins and Lions by a combined score of 106-51. It's the first time since the end of the 2011 season that the Saints have won three consecutive games by double-digit margins.


That simply doesn't happen by accident. Not in this league, where the difference between teams is razor thin.

I just noticed that Vaccaro has the same amount of passes defensed and INTs in five games as he had all last season. 2 INTs is actually his best in a season so far in his career.

He had one career int before this season.

He is an amazing tackler within a few yards going straight ahead.

He should have been converted to a LB a long time ago.

He is a liabilty in coverage.

He takes poor angles to the ball in space.

He is ok at blitzing.

I don't care for his "knees".

It was a stunning display in the first half by the offense and the defense. The offense, in the second half, somehow, couldn't remember how to run the ball.

As i was watching the second half I could see us blowing a huge lead. Thankfully I was wrong and that didn't happen but it was edge of the seat stuff.

Great game for the neutrals to watch, 90 points in a single game. Phew!

GEAUX SAINTS!!
