Det var et skidt nederlag New Orleans Saints led på udebane mod Houston Texans. Heldigvis tabte samtlige hold i NFC South. Men nederlaget har sikkert og burde påvirke Saints placering i denne uges power rankings.

NFL #18 (#14)

The Saints appear incapable of having all three units play well, or evenly passably, in the same game. The offense was strong in Week 5 but highly inconsistent on Sunday. The defense was pushed around early by the Texans. NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Blake Grupe missed two big kicks in the loss. Whatever Saints fans might think of offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr., there are only so many fancy play calls that can overcome an underachieving offensive line and an erratic Derek Carr. The Saints have scored 20 fourth-quarter points in six games. Ten of those were in a blowout of the Patriots. Zero came in two brutal losses on the road, at Green Bay and at Houston. This is a decidedly average team until further notice.

All of the things the Saints did in the offseason (signing Derek Carr, keeping Michael Thomas) have not solved any of the issues from last season. The Saints are averaging only 18.2 points per game, which ranks 24th in the league and is worse than last season’s average of 19.4, and there doesn’t seem to be a solution on the horizon. That means offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael will continue to be scrutinized until the team improves.

That was not a good look in losing to the Texans on the road. The offense moved the ball, but just couldn’t score enough.

Efter to brændte field goals af rookie kicker Blake Grupe, fortryder de nok, at de sagde farvel til Will Lutz
