Saints march to 9th straight win

There’s domination and then there’s whatever the Saints are doing. Yesterday, they ran laps around the Philadelphia Eagles en route to their ninth straight and made some history in the process as well.

That 48-7 triumph is the largest margin of victory over a defending Super Bowl champion in league history, also the largest margin of victory for the Black and Gold this season.

On an individual level, Michael Thomas became the first Saints wide receiver to record back-to-back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons to start a career.

New Orleans is now averaging close to 38 points per game, good for first in the NFL and yet coach and quarterback are still trying to figure out how to get even better. Saints Head Coach Sean Payton said, “We keep working on trying to improve. I’m sure there will be things we’re upset about when we watch the tape. We don’t have a lot of time to dwell on them and yet we’ve got to make the corrections and get ready to play Atlanta in a short time frame.”

Quarterback Drew Brees said, “So if each one of us just takes that approach of continuing to improve, coming to work with a great sense of urgency to improve, then you have days like this and you’re still not satisfied because you know you could have done a little bit better, but obviously, the end result is good.”

The Saints will get right back at it on Thursday when they host their first-ever Thanksgiving Day game against the rival Atlanta Falcons at 7:20 p.m. from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
