NFL Minute: Saints’ ground game can’t disappear in future road contests – (Saints Wire) Saints News









The days of the New Orleans Saints being a bad road team are gone. Prior to Thursday night’s 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the team was undefeated in road contests this season even though Drew Brees had only thrown for more than 265 yards once as a visitor.

Of course, Brees struggled mightily at AT&T Stadium and was limited to only 127 yards through the air on Thursday evening. However, the bigger problem in that contest was the Saints lack of a rush attack. Neither Alvin Kamara or Mark Ingram could get much going and the offense mustered only 65 yards on the ground.

Should New Orleans find themselves as a road team in the upcoming postseason, Tim Benz claims the Saints must be able to tap into their league-leading ground game if they want to achieve their ultimate goals.
