That’s now four games the Saints have not allowed more than 17 points. 55 points they’ve allowed this year through 4 games.

Mark this another game that the Saints did not allow a 100 yard rusher, 100 yard receiver, or a 300 yard passer.

The Saints have more wins that the entire NFC South Division combined.

Sean Payton coached his 100th game last night, and is now 66-34.

Drew Brees tied his own record last night for most consecutive 300 yard passing games (9), and he also has now completed 20 passes or more in 56 consecutive games.

Brees was sacked only twice last night, which was a major improvement. He was only hit 3 times on the night versus Ryan Tannehill’s 10.

The Saints are 4-0, with the last time achieving that record being 2009. I don’t think I need to say more.

Just how important is Sean Payton?

"“He’s our lead man,” Brees said. “I tell you what, from the moment he stepped back in the facility in April, he’s been locked in. He’s never let an opportunity go by without communicating a message. He has not let anything go unsaid. Maybe that’s the perspective coming off last year. Maybe it’s just feeling like he hasn’t been around, so he wants to make sure everything is communicated, especially to a lot of these young players, about our program and what we do on a daily basis, our work ethic, building a foundation, the history. I feel like we’re building some history here.”"

Here’s where things get fun. Obviously we all know about the 24 hour rule, so let’s build a bridge and move on. The only thing on everyone’s mind is the Bears. Chicago has not been kind to us, and there’s all sorts of stories that will come out on this matchup. The quick facts I can share? Chicago has won 4 out of the last 5 meetings against the Saints, and the Saints have not won in Chicago since 2002.

Two straight road games with two really good ball clubs. Here we geaux!
