3 unspoken and under-appreciated players at the core of New Orleans Saints success
The New Orleans Saints are 7-2, and they’ve taken their game to the next level behind these three unspoken and unappreciated players.
With the New Orleans Saints’ loss to the Falcons on Sunday, the team looked like they were not in true Super Bowl form. The Saints suffered their second loss of the season at the hand of the Atlanta Falcons.
The line gave up six sacks and the defense was helpless to shut down Julio Jones and Matt Ryan from dissecting the secondary. While they limited other offensive weapons, it wasn’t even close to enough.
A season-high in penalties definitely hurt the team’s chances, but this loss happened due to a few key injuries to Saints players and underperformance from others.
Of course, the stars like Michael Thomas got their usual numbers, but some underappreciated members of the team not being able to produce their regular load led to this shocking and defining loss.
So who are the players who go under the radar but are essential for this team’s dynamic?
