Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial220-0For the fourth time in five seasons, Drew Brees led the NFL in passing yards although his 4,870 yards was a five-year low. In addition, his 32 touchdowns were an eight-year low. Only 458 passing yards behind Dan Marino, Brees should move into third place all-time by Week 2.
Post-Draft250-0The Saints had only five picks in this year's draft and Sheldon Rankins and Vonn Bell should help improve a defense that ranked last in the NFL. In addition, they drafted receiver Michael Thomas, who will likely assume Marques Colston's old role. That said, it's possible that the Saints will be picking within the top 5-10 picks in 2017.
Week 1190-0Preseason win projection: 8-8
Week 2230-1Drew Brees threw for 423 yards and four touchdowns as the Saints opened the season with a 35-34 loss. As always, it's the defense, not offense, that is the problem and the Saints have lost their best cornerback, Devin Breaux, to a fractured fibula.
Week 3250-2In his first two games as a Saint, Coby Fleener has a total of three catches for 35 yards on 12 targets despite favorable matchups against the Raiders and Giants.
