New Orleans Saints– This was a must win game for the Saints on Sunday night. They knew if they lose, they would be 2-5 and three games under 500. That’s a huge hole to be in compared to being one game under 500. The Saints approach in this one was simple. Get Mark Ingram involved, protect Brees and get Graham involved early and often. Their defense also got back to being physical. They rushed four, dropped back seven, kept two safeties deep and play tight man coverage underneath and most importantly they took Jordy Nelson away.
