For the last six years, the Saints have been known as the “Saints of the NFC East” for their ability to beat their division rivals.
With the playoffs fast approaching, the NFC South will have the opportunity to do the same with the Saints.
The Saints will likely face off against the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers, two teams with playoff experience.
Both are led by former Super Bowl champions who have the ability to challenge the Saints for the division crown.
The Panthers were recently promoted to the NFC West and are currently ranked at #7 in the latest Power Rankings.
In fact, their season is nearly over.
They are only a game back of the Saints, who currently hold the NFC’s No. 2 seed.
The Seahawks, who also play in the NFC, will likely be playing in the division’s final game, but the Seahawks are still only a half-game back of a potential Super Bowl winner.
If you want to know how to survive the Saints game plan against the Redskins, read on.
How to Survive the Saints Offense The Saints offense has always been a focus for this franchise.
While they have been one of the best offenses in the NFL, they struggled to produce against the Saints defense.
After going 7-9 last year, the defense allowed 4,521 yards and 27 touchdowns on 302 attempts.
It is unlikely the Saints offense will be as successful this year.
The defense has had several key players miss significant time with injury.
While quarterback Drew Brees is expected to be healthy for the start of the season, the other key offensive lineman in the starting lineup is rookie tackle Terron Armstead.
Armstead missed most of training camp due to a foot injury.
The team is hopeful that Armstead can play at some point this season.
The offensive line will be able to play a major role in the Saints’ offensive success, but they need to do it in a more balanced manner.
The key to this offense is the run game.
Brees will have a difficult time slowing down the Washington passing attack, but he will need to be more consistent with his passing game.
If the Saints can get on the board quickly with their run game, they can take a big step in the postseason.
However, if the Redskins can slow down the Saints run game early, the team will have an easy time getting off the field.
The Redskins run game is led by the third-ranked rushing attack in the league.
Their offensive line has shown an ability to block on the run and has allowed just three sacks through six games.
The biggest challenge for the Saints will be keeping their defensive line honest on the perimeter.
If they allow the Saints to get pressure on them, they could easily turn the game into a one-score affair.
The best way to keep the Saints defensive line in check will be to limit the amount of plays they can make on the edge.
The only way to do that is to be aggressive in their rush.
In the NFC Championship Game, the Redskins were able to run the ball a total of 27 times and make eight tackles for loss.
This was a huge difference in their performance.
The pass rush was able to force seven sacks and four forced fumbles.
While the Saints offensive line should be able play better against the rush, the ability of the running game will be the most important factor.
When the Saints line is able to rush the quarterback, the offense can become unstoppable.
The most important aspect of this game plan will be how to stop the Redskins run defense from creating turnovers.
The ability to force a turnover is key in the run-game and the Saints are going to have to do a better job of that.
If we take a look at how the Redskins offensive line performs versus the run, we can see a lot of issues.
The Rams line allowed just five sacks through seven games.
While their defensive end Robert Quinn and nose tackle Robert Quinn III are both in their prime, their play has been a little shaky.
This is likely due to the fact that the Rams have been trying to bring their defensive ends together and develop a cohesive unit.
They will need some help from the defensive tackles to help the line improve.
In general, the line needs to improve their pass rush.
This means not just slowing down rushing ends, but slowing down linebackers as well.
This will allow them to get the linebacker in space and create some havoc in the backfield.
The defensive tackles need to also be more aggressive and take a step back when they are forced to rush.
If their offensive line plays better, the Rams offense could take a major step forward in the playoffs.
The running game is going to be a key element in the Super Bowl.
The run game will definitely be an issue for the Seahawks in the season finale.
The primary running back for the team is the Seattle Machine, who had a whopping 1,923 yards last season.
It was the most yards ever by a single team in a season, according to Pro Football Reference.
