Saints Looking to Continue Streak On The Road
The New Orleans Saints are in sole possession of first place in the NFC South, with a 9-3 record, two games in front of the second place Atlanta Falcons.
They’ve won four consecutive games, with three of those coming at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Now, however, New Orleans hits the road, where they’ve been susceptible, for two straight games.
How different are the Saints at home, compared to the road?
On the road this year, the Saints are 3-3, with loses to two teams (Tampa Bay & St. Louis), with a combined record of 6-18.
Of their three road wins, only one (Jacksonville) has been by more than a field goal.
At home, the Saints are 6-0, with all of the wins being by at least touchdown, and all but one (Houston) being more than a touchdown.
At home New Orleans has outscored the opposition by a whopping 249-110 margin.
On the road however, the Saints have been outscored 159-154.
The Saints have been impressive over the last four weeks, but now they have to show they can sustain that level of play on the road.
