He is often called “inconsistent”, but Lofton has been around the ball often this season. He is in the top 10 for most tackles in the league and averaging about nine tackles a game.

The Saints have a couple of “run-first” mentality teams coming into the Superdome the next couple of weeks in the 49ers, Ravens, and the Bengals. The Saints will need Lofton to turn in these kind of performances to force three and outs.
