Where does one even begin in describing one of the best offensive seasons for an NFL team ever? The only meaningful team-offensive record to barely survive 2011 was the Patriots' 589 points scored in 2007. In total, the Saints scored 547 points, which would have been good enough for third best in NFL history if not for the 560 points scored by the Packers.
Even though the Patriots record still stands, the Saints set a new record for offensive yards gained by nearly 400 yards with 7,474. Also a new record was that 5,347 of them came from passing.
The Saints led the NFL in converting on third downs 56.7 percent of the time, and averaged 26 first downs per game to set a new season record of 416.
Let's look a little closer at who got the Saints here, and where they go from here in the playoffs.
