MINNEAPOLIS – Oh, man. Do we really have to wait six days for Sunday? Can not we have access to a time machine and fast until November 4 in New Orleans? On that day, Superdome will host what looks like one of the most important games in the 201
It’s not always smart to distinguish out competitors and predecessors halfway through a NFL season. But as week 8 draws from the view, it’s hard to avoid putting Los Angeles Rams (8-0) and New Orleans Saints (6-1) on the NFC match. And hello, what do you know? Rams and Saints will meet at Superdome in week 9.
A complete analysis of NFC would acknowledge that Carolina Panthers are 5-2 and still have both matches left against the Saints. Quiet, Washington Redskins (5-2) holds the muddy NFC East lead. But Rams’ undefeated land and Saints & # 39; sex-playing stretch, including two consecutive victories on the road, shows clear separation from the rest of the field.
We all know what Rams has – rich roster combined with an innovative offensive system. What is impressive about the Saints, however, is that no obvious pattern has arisen in their winning manner. This team is as capable of winning games with an explosively suitable game as it is with one that barely reaches three-digit yardage.
“We feel like we’ve been fighting and have won in many different ways already in the first part of this season,” said Saints quarterback Drew Brees after his team wound up Minnesota Vikings 30-20 Sunday at US Bank Stadium in a game which was not even as close as the score occurred.
If you have only overseen the Saints, far from, you may be shocked to learn that they won handy despite the least explosive pass of Brees’ 13 seasons with the Saints. He threw for just 120 meters, less than any game in his career where his team scored 30 points, according to ESPN Stats & Information Research. Overall, the amount of Brees was the lowest for an entire game he played since he signed with the Saints in 2006.
Brees has thrown for 396 and 363 meters in victory this season, but we learned Sunday evening that he do not have to throw as it is for the saints to enjoy themselves. They plowed through the folds with a definite ball control breach that had Brees throw 82 percent of its passages within 5 meters of the Scrimmage line – his highest percentage in any game with the Saints.
Brees said he considered the transitional game “a complement” to the overall crime, an accurate, crushing and superior positive development for the Saints as a Super Bowl player. 19659008] “[It was] positive actors who put us in manageable situations so we could maintain driving to stay on the field and keep their explosive crimes from the field,” said Brees. “… It was not a conservative approach. It’s just a smart approach. “
