The New Orleans Saints are in the Top 5 of the NFL in several categories for the 2012-2013 season heading into Week 14.  Some of which to be proud of, while others not so much.

The Saints offense overall is currently ranked at #3 with 394.3 yards per game with their passing attack at #2 with 298.1 yards per game.  That same passing game is ranked #4 with 331 completions and #1 with passing touchdowns.

That same passing attack though has also racked up 18 interceptions for quarterback Drew Brees who has tied rookie quarterback Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts and gives the Saints this #1 spot in that category.

In total offensive yards, the Saints are ranked #3 with 5,124 yards and will most definitely not even touch their number from last year of 7,474 yards and Brees throwing for 5,476 of those yards.
