The New Orleans Saints were downright embarrassed on Thanksgiving night, getting wallopped 31-6 by the Buffalo Bills. It was an all-around bad game for NOLA but it wasn’t all bad, somehow.
Here are three positives from the butt whooping the Saints took from the Bills.
3. Demario Davis balled out once again
At this point, it almost seems like a foregone conclusion that Demario Davis is going to ball out whenever he’s on the field. Thursday night was no exception.
Davis was a freak of nature once again, flying all over the field. He finished the game with 10 total tackles (six solo tackles and one tackle for loss), making the key tackle when it needed to be made.
I probably didn’t need to include Davis’ killer performance because, as mentioned earlier, we’ve come to expect these kinds of performances from the linebacker. Despite the final score, Davis and the rest of the defense played well but there’s only so much they can do when the offense fails to muster up anything more than a measly touchdown.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone when I say that this entire list fixates on the defense and the day they had. It’d have been a nice outing had the offense showed up and came to play as well.
