The New Orleans Saints are no strangers to adapting to difficult situations to win games; they’ve had to adjust in both their last two seasons.
Over the past two seasons, the Saints have gone undefeated when their franchise quarterback was sidelined due to injury. While sources claim that Drew Brees could return to the lineup as early as Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s not unlikely that he will miss more time to fully rehabilitate.
While the Saints are 2-0 behind quarterback Taysom Hill, how well will their gameplan carry them for the remainder of the season?
It’s important to note who the remaining five opponents are for the black and gold when considering how well the team could do should Brees miss the majority of those games.
This week, the team will face off again with a division rival in the Atlanta Falcons. The remainder of their schedule consists of the Eagles, Chiefs, Vikings, and concludes with another matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
While Taysom Hill proved himself capable of running an offense against the Falcons in his starting debut, his numbers were much more conservative in the recent showdown with the Broncos.
The team has admitted they wanted to play more secure with the ball when they learned of the Broncos quarterback situation, but the team has won their recent games on the ground and with their defense.
Can they win the remaining five games with those alone?
