Lamarcus Joyner Mens Jersey The New Orleans Saints have allowed 29.5 points per game in their six victories this season, by far the highest figure in the NFL. They didn’t claim those long-shot victories by accident. They won them largely because their quarterback, Drew Brees, has produced about as well as he ever has through 14 games in a season.

Now the guys up front need to do their job so that Elliott can do his.
