The New Orleans Saints won a commanding game in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions — one that was desperately needed.
The New Orleans Saints were down 1-2 this season.
It has been a couple of seasons since the fans of the black and gold last saw their team with a losing record. This record, especially given their two prime time losses, was shocking and of utmost concern as they ended almost a must-win Week 4.
This was a pivotal game for the Saints.
Both teams took the field, and it did not look good from the start. After two possessions and an interception, the Lions took a 14-0 lead within the first five minutes of the first quarter leaving Saints fans stunned.
They quickly corrected, though, putting up 35 unanswered points following. The Lions brought it back close, but in the end, the Saints 35 unanswered points were too much for Detroit to overcome, even at their home field.
Looking back on the game, there were several Saints who deserve a game ball from Sean Payton, and there are several players who need to get back to practice tonight. Here is your one winner and one loser from the Week 4 contest with Detroit.
