Going into Week 11, the New Orleans Saints managed to rank high in certain areas among the NFC teams. While winning is the most important thing, it’s still encouraging for fans to see.
Offense: The Saints are currently ranked #1 in offense with averaging 436.9 yards a game. One team that could come close to them this week because of the bye is the Green Bay Packers who are at #3 with 409.7 yards.
Quarterbacks: Drew Brees is currently ranked #2 with 3,326 yards passing, 23 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is #1 and will probably put some distance between him and Brees after this week.
Receivers: No surprise that TE Jimmy Graham is ranked #1 with RB Darren Sproles ranked at #2. Graham has 62 receptions for 873 yards and 6 touchdowns. Sproles has 60 receptions for 448 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Punters: Thomas Morstead is currently ranked #4 with 31 punts for 1,493 yards. He has been averaging 48.2 yards per punt with his longest being 64 yards.
