Saints Road Problems Continue, Fall Into Hole Early, Drop to 10-4

You think a lesson was learned from the Seahawks game. Clearly, that wasn’t the case.

The Rams would receive the kick, and eventually be stopped on the opening drive of the game, and then that’s where things got off to another terrible start. On the Saints opening play on offense, Brees was intercepted. The Rams would take advantage of the short field, and would never look back after going up 7-0. Zac Stacy pounded the Saints rush defense for 133 yards and a score, and the Saints just looked awful in what was supposed to be an important game.

“That was pretty ugly. Obviously, it’s a disappointing loss. Extremely disappointing, I thought, in all three areas. We didn’t play very well at all. Obviously, we didn’t get them ready to play coming out. I take responsibility for that. Shoot, much has been written how we play at home and how we play on the road. You know what? That’s where it is right now this season. We come out here with a lot at stake, having played an important game last week. We can’t line up and kick a field goal. We can’t get the run stopped. We turn the ball over. We did everything that we talked about that you can’t do to get a road win. … How we played today was unacceptable.” — Saints coach Sean Payton

Couldn’t have said it better, Coach.
