Defense has been a big topic so far this year in the NFL, but not all of them have been great. The Saints defense is definitely standing out so far, but not in a good way. In the first three games of the NFL season, the New Orleans defense gave up a total of 72 points in which their opponent only scored 9 points in one game. In the season opener, theÂ Saints gave up 37 points to rival, Atlanta Falcons. The Saints even lost to the Dallas Cowboys being held to under 20 points. Going through the rest of the season, the Saints will have their work cut out for them with a tough schdule going by too fast. Clearly, the Saints defense will have to turn things around if they expect to be in the playoffs this season.
