At MetLife Stadium, it was cold and wet outside; the weather was miserable. What else was miserable? New Orleans Saints football.
This season has sure been a roller-coaster ride. They lost four in a row, got back to .500 and proceeded to go on a three-game losing streak. What happened to that drive? After winning a few games, it seems the team has lost all its steam.
In Week 14 against the Giants, the Saints displayed the same undisciplined, sloppy, turnover-prone football that has plagued them for the majority of the season. They did give Saints fans some hope for the first 28 minutes of the game, but then it all unraveled, and the Giants just exploded.
When a team commits 10 penalties for 81 yards, four turnovers and manages to constantly give the opposing team good field position due to bad special teams coverage, it's hard for any team to win.
Let's take a look at some of the Saints' winners and losers from Week 14.
