Poll: What grade do you give the team?
The Saints got “outed” Sunday — outplayed, outhustled and outcoached.
They never really contended. Cleveland (2-5) seized a 10-0 lead midway though the first quarter and led by double digits for all but three minutes the rest of the way.
Drew Brees threw four interceptions, including two that were returned for touchdowns.
The Saints committed seven penalties for a season-high 98 yards.
They allowed a 62-yard punt return off a cross-field lateral and a 68-yard run off a fake punt.
The only thing that could have made the loss more embarrassing would have been if the Browns had toilet-papered the stadium on their way out.
“It sucks, man,” guard Carl Nicks said. “We got beat in most every aspect of the game.”
