NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The New Orleans Saints are putting the Week 1 Oakland loss behind them. They’re focus is all about taking on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Check out video of what Saints head coach Sean Payton and Mark Ingram have to say about the upcoming game.
The Saints kick off against the Giants at noon CST.
The Saints and Giants unusual high scoring games have made NFL history. It's the first time that two teams played four straight games in which the winner scored at least 48 points each time.
Both teams are trying to avoid another shootout. The Saints will have to do it without top cornerback Delvin Breaux. He's out due to a broken fibula. That means, three of the Saints top four corners are playing in just their second NFL game.
Against the Raiders, the Saints defense allowed 22 fourth quarter points. The Saints didn't sack the quarterback and didn't force a turnover. They've been working to improve the defense in a hurry, because they're going against one of the best NFL receivers Odell Beckham Jr.
