Saints Overcome Sluggish Start, Defense Shines, Improve to 6-1

Now that’s what we call a victory! The tempo of yesterday’s meeting with the Bills got off to a really crazy start. The Saints capitalized quickly off a Thad Lewis turnover, and then were pushed back, and Garrett Hartley would miss a field goal. The Bills would answer, by missing a field goal of their own. After the first Kenny Stills touchdown in the 2nd quarter, the Saints would never look back, as they stay undefeated at home, improving to 6-1 on the season.

I like being right, too.
