On a day when neither defense could stop either offense (Thank you, Steve Spagnuolo) (Let’s work on this defense, Rob Ryan), it took 52 points–a record breaking number of touch down passes by Drew Brees–and an excellent field goal by Kai Forth to beat the Giants.  But beat them they did.  It was an exciting and thrilling day of offense for the National Football League.  The winning field goal was the only in the game as the Saints stood character-strong to pull together as a unit and get the win.

Mark Ingram ran hard and tough.  You could not ask for more improvement by a player than what has been exhibited by him.  The offensive line held and rarely gave up pressure but some the Giants were able to exert some pressure on Brees.  It will be great to get Andrus Peat back.

The secondary, while much improved, will have to play better against good, healthy quarterbacks.  While the run defense was awesome, the loss of Ellerbe and Hawthorne was felt.  The secondary is on a trajectory to play better but Browner needs to get his penalties under control.

Stay tuned as we examine the tape and give you more in-depth analysis.  And, oh yes, the Falcons did lose today.
