payton_lose_carouselThe problem with many of the decisions the Saints made was how conservative they turned, on offense and defense.

In an SEC season that's been dominated by top-shelf offense, there's still at least one team that plays defense: Florida.

Through five games, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles have combined for nearly double the yards and three times more touchdowns in the passing game than the running game — despite the fact that they are also the top two rushers on the team.

The Dirty Birds get winged in a last-second loss to the New York Jets, whose head coach just happens to be the twin brother of the Saints' super-cool defensive coordinator. Just sayin'...

"We knew the formula coming into this game was to remain patient, to run the football effectively, to be very efficient in the passing game and to take care of the football, priority No. 1."
