If there’s one Saint you don’t want to be today, that would be Garrett Hartley. Hartley missed field goals of 47 (wide left) & 38 (wide left). The 38-yard attempt hit the post, and both attempts really didn’t look so hot. Hartley will be needed down the stretch, especially in the stretch the Saints will soon face (Cowboys-49ers-Falcons-Seahawks). As usual, Who Dat Nation is calling for blood.

I would get on a rant about the penalties, and lack thereof called penalties, but I’ll again leave it alone.

Drew Brees set another NFL Record, as he is now the sole owner of most career games with five passing touchdowns or greater.

Drew Brees has still never thrown an interception in four career games against the Bills. The only other team he can say that’s happened against? The Saints.

Brees was sacked 4 times yesterday, bringing his season total to 18. What’s crazier? He’s been sacked twice as many times (12) at home vs. on the road (6).

Sean Payton’s Saints are now 4-3 after a bye week, and Payton has won the last four.

Darren Sproles was held off the stat sheet for the most part, as he finished only having 4 catches (on 4 targets) for 0 yards. Clearly, the Bills had a game plan for him, and it slowed him down.

So, the Saints improve to 6-1 on the season, and that’s the same six wins that ESPN the Magazine said we’d finish with for the entire season. The team got a huge shot in the arm after coming off their bye week, and got the ‘bad taste’ out of their mouth in losing to the Patriots. The team is now due to travel Northeast, to take the reeling Jets.

Needless to say, get ready. Here comes your classic ‘trap’ game.
