5.  Saints offensive line must improve

All-pro guard Jahri Evans had to sit out some of the game because of an aggravated hamstring. Coupled with a left tackle that is still trying to solidify Brees’ blind side and the Saints have a bit of drama on the offensive line. Brees has been sacked ten times through three games and forced to run for his life when the protection breaks down.

Evans will most likely be ready to go since the Saints have an extended week playing next Monday night against Miami instead of Sunday, but the Saints offensive line needs to do a better job of protecting Brees so this offense can run on all cylinders.
