They’re tied with Buffalo and Detroit in that category.
The Saints have continued to impress and win games despite the many injuries where only one season ago in a similar situation, they finished out of the playoffs.
That experience prompted general manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton to put a lot of emphasis on acquiring depth in the off season, and they’ve found enough quality backups that they’ve been able to weather the injury storm quite nicely. The offensive line, Full back, Tight end, Defensive line, linebacker and secondary have held up with quality depth so far. Players that would have not sniffed the starting lineup otherwise are buying in to a new found never say die winning culture in New Orleans. After so many years of "same old Saints" football I am really starting to believe in this franchise and what the future may bring it./ homer mode off.
Rod Harper DB-previous starter
Leigh Torrence DB-depth started when others got hurt
