5. Get an early lead

Drew Brees said it during his press conference on Wednesday.  The New Orleans Saints have been successful these last couple of weeks because they were able to put the first points on the board.

They’ve got to do it again on Sunday.  It doesn’t matter how you score, just do it.  Scoring on the opening drive would be a beautiful way to do so.  Kicking first, making a defensive stop, and then driving down the field would be even sweeter.

After a brutal start to the season, this team is coming together much quicker than anticipated.  With playmakers emerging on both sides of the ball, the Saints should have no problem putting up some quick points, especially in the comfort of their own home.

There’s four quarters to be played, and sometimes you can’t always get the early lead, but it would certainly make beating the Giants much easier on Sunday.
