New Orleans Saints har nu tabt to kampe i træk, noget som helt sikkert ikke bør forbedre Saints placering i de fire power rankings vi følger med i denne sæson.
Men hvor langt nede er Saints placeret blandt de 32 NFL hold?
NFL #19 (#18)
The Saints’ fourth-quarter flourish shouldn’t make anyone assume their offensive issues are fixed. It took too long for New Orleans to find any consistent rhythm against the Jaguars, and the story for most of Thursday’s game — just as it was four days earlier, in Week 6 — was that Derek Carr and his pass catchers seemingly operate on different wavelengths too often. New Orleans went 0-for-3 in the red zone against the Texans and 3-for-18 on third down against the Jaguars. Carr and Chris Olave especially can’t seem to get in a groove. Olave is roughly on the same production pace as he was in his rookie year, but he’s only caught 17 of his past 36 targets. That can’t continue. To make matters worse, Olave was arrested for reckless operation of a motor vehicle on Monday.– Eric Edholm

The rookie safety started two of the three games that Marcus Maye was suspended for, missing one game to have finger surgery. He already has become part of the rotation in a deep backfield and has shown a lot of promise for the future. In a 34-0 shutout of the Patriots, he had two pass deflections in his second start even though his hand was still healing.— Katherine Terrell

The offense is so limited right now with Derek Carr not playing well. He points a lot of fingers at others, but he’s a big part of the problem.— Pete Prisco

Good news: Alvin Kamara ligner sig selv.— Claus Elming
Bad news: Det gør Derek Carr desværre også
