After getting off to a slow start in third straight game, Saints have ‘no doubt’ they’ll right the ship

Alvin Kamara stood near his locker to field questions about the New Orleans Saints’ third consecutive lackluster offensive performance and repeated the same phrase a couple times.

“There’s no doubt,” Kamara said.

As in, no doubt that whatever is currently ailing the Saints offense is not something that is going to linger, fester and ruin what has been a great run to this point. No doubt that the potent offense New Orleans is known for will find its footing again. No doubt, as in no shaken belief.

The important thing, Kamara said, was that the team was there in that moment celebrating a victory — its 12th in 14 games — that it would enjoy until the work on the next opponent started.

“We’re on to the next, period,” Kamara said.

And yet...

The Saints went their third consecutive game without scoring a touchdown in the first half. They only crossed the goal line once against the Panthers, a few minutes into the fourth quarter.

Another potential touchdown was whisked away when the ball slipped out of Tommylee Lewis’ hands over the goal line and out of bounds, a touchback that gave Carolina the ball with a chance to win or tie in the closing minutes.

New Orleans’ high-flying offensive attack was once again grounded. It was held under 400 yards of total offense for the fourth consecutive game after topping that mark in six of its first nine contests. With the playoffs rapidly approaching, the Saints are left trying to determine what ails its moneymaker.

“We’ve got to get it figured out,” Kamara said. “We’ve been starting slow. We take the responsibility, we’ve just got to make plays and do what we’ve got to do to get the offense rolling. Whether it’s me, Mark (Ingram), Mike (Thomas), somebody’s got to step up and create a spark early.”

Kamara had another solid game ..

103 all purpose
50 yard KR
1 td

He makes plays when you have to have him.

Side note - TommyLee "Jerry" Lewis ... smdh. Maybe someone else can make sense of this dude :rolleyes:.

Anyone notice that play when Taysom Hill came in on that read option (think he ran for a about 10 yards), it was another "spark" ? Another good splash play from the best special team player in the NFL.
