Cam Jordan was lying comfortably on one of the giant bean bag chairs in the New Orleans Saints locker room, eyes closed, when a statistic was brought to his attention: In their last four games, the Saints have recorded 20 sacks.

“Is that true?” Jordan said, perking up just a bit.

Indeed it is. As the 2018 season reaches its final leg, the New Orleans Saints defense has ramped up the pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Thirteen of those 20 sacks have come in the last two weeks.

“It’s true what they say: When they come, they come in bunches,” said Sheldon Rankins.

“It's been impressive,” said Saints coach Sean Payton.

One of the most encouraging things about it, Payton said, is that the pressure has largely been generated by the Saints’ entire defensive line, not just the rush ends.



Jordan has recorded five sacks in the last four games, and Alex Okafor has recorded two. Rankins and David Onyemata have three apiece and rookie Taylor Stallworth recorded his first career sack against the Cowboys last week.

Linebackers and defensive backs have accounted for the other six sacks.

“We've gotten in a rotation (set up),” Payton said, crediting defensive assistants Ryan Nielsen and Brian Young. “I think it’s like (with) the turnovers, those have really picked up and we’re doing those things to win games. Hopefully, we can continue on that path.”

Taylor Stallworth ... undrafted but he's played extremely well this season. I think he could make Davison expendable.

Coach Ryan Nielsen is the real deal folks.
