Regular Season Avg     102.15 5.91 96.23


Notes: Week 5 looks like a rerun of week 2 for the Saints, with the same result a loss.

Week 3 - the Saints needed a statement game to turn their season around, this wasn't it, they go into the bye week without playing a single good game this season.

Week 1 - the Saints need to play better on both sides of the ball if they expect to return to the Playoffs and perhaps the Super Bowl as many including PossessionPoints have forecast.

Note: The Matchup column will project the remainder of the season after the 5th week of the regular season. The good news for the Saints is that the our Preseason Preview issue expected a loss in week 1 and still get a 14-2 record. As we noted above however, they need to play much better if they are to come close to the 14-2 above.

Pre-Season Avg     104.95 67.14 37.81

Notes: The Saints' preseason results seem to show that they still know how to pile on the PossessionPoints. We know that teams that get to the "green" in offensive PossessionPoints win 75% of the time, and the Saints offensively were in the green all 3 games. In their 2 wins, they were in the green defensively also. Saints' Fans can only hope their preseason performance can carry into the regular season.
