Grading The Saints-Week 9

The New Orleans Saints got back on the win track on Sunday, defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 27-16, in an NFC South contest, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, in New Orleans.

The Saints obviously fared much better than the week prior, when the fell to the previously unbeaten St. Louis Rams, 31-21.

Against the Bucs, the Saints' offense rolled, for 458 total yards, including 195 rushing yards, while the defense held Tampa Bay to only 84 rushing yards.

Special teams was fine, as John Kasay hit two field goals, and punter Thomas Morestead was great, as he usually is.

You have to give the Saints passing grades all-around this week.

Despite giving up 40 points, 454 yards, and 3 straight touchdown scoring drives in the 4th quarter, the Houston Texans defense refused to acknowledge the dominant nature of the New Orleans Saints offense. Texans safety Glover Quin quipped, "We just didn't make plays that we needed to make. It wasn't like they're something special." Other members of the Texans secondary agreed.
