Atlanta is the blueprint

Recommended Posts

In Week 10 of the 2019 season, the 1-7 Atlanta Falcons came to New Orleans and beat the Saints soundly in their Superdome, 26-9. They did so by blending a game of offensive balance against the combustible Saints and a defense that did a lot of bending but only minimal breaking against Sean Payton‘s high-octane offense.

 

The Falcons used a platooned attack of RBs Devonta Freeman and Brian Hill to control the game clock by over 13 minutes, even while Saints WR Michael Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara combined for 21 catches and 202 yards for New Orleans.

 

The Saints had no turnovers, but while Atlanta rushed 34 times for 143 yards, the Saints handed the ball off only 11 times for 52 yards. In essence, they did what the Packers did to the Vikings in Week 16. They shut down the run and forced the Saints to depend on the pass.

 

Atlanta sacked Brees six times in the game, killing offensive drives throughout. They also understood that ‘Mr. Gadget’, QB/RB/WR Taysom Hill was a threat and kept him to 14 yards on the contest.

"forced the Saints to depend on the pass..."   Such a foolish statement against a qb like Brees.  It wasn't the "forced to depend on the pass" that beat the Saints, it was the effectiveness of the pass rush during those times.  Whenever we DIDN'T get to him, he torched us.

 

We also got lucky breaking a few runs, but even that wasn't the key.  So many teams have tried "the blueprint" since our game and have gotten steamrolled...the only way to beat the Saints is with constant pressure on Brees that actually got home, and attacking the defensive vulnerability...passes just past the LB, not giving time for their defensive front to go off...and then just some plain ol outscoring luck.

 

The Saints are in constant attack mode on both sides of the ball all game long.  You can't "defend" that; you must reroute it, more like a jiu-jitsu style of defense...

Someone needs to just go out there and punch the Saints in the mouth. Thankfully that’ll be done in the first postseason game they play. 

^ This absolutely ...

This would mean something if they were able to duplicate that performance.

Good luck with that considering we've done more punching than we've taken.
