New Orleans Saints tabte på et dårligt fjerde kvarter på udebane mod Green Bay Packers. Et nederlag der måske kommer tilbage og viser sig meget kristisk, når seedning til playoffs begynder at nærme sig.
Men hvordan ligger Saints i denne uge power rankings ?
NFL #14 (#10)
I was struggling to overlook the Saints’ O-line issues prior to Derek Carr suffering a shoulder injury that forced him to leave the Week 3 loss to Green Bay. There’s no hiding those issues now. Carr’s injury was not directly the fault of the Saints’ line, but their offensive troubles start with that group. On Sunday, left tackle Trevor Penning was flagged twice and left guard James Hurst was flagged once. Center Erik McCoy and Hurst also had tough reps in pass protection. The entire unit struggled to generate any movement in the run game. And on top of all that, RG Cesar Ruiz left with a concussion. With Carr week to week, who knows how they’ll block should Jameis Winston start at QB? The Saints suddenly are entering a gut-check phase after their 2-0 start.– Eric Edholm

Saints coach Dennis Allen admitted after the Packers loss that the offensive line needs to protect better, but the unit might have to protect someone else besides quarterback Derek Carr , who is week-to-week after spraining the AC joint in his right shoulder Sunday. The Saints have allowed 12 sacks this season, and while they’re not all on the offensive line, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed moving forward.– Katherine Terrell

The injury to Derek Carr is a bad thing, but blowing a 17-point lead late still shouldn’t have happened. Carr’s injury bears watching.— Pete Prisco
