Anytime you can beat a divisional opponent, on the road, on Thursday Night Football, credit is most certainly in order.
With every week, the pressure mounts for the Saints to not only win, but win in convincing fashion. Usually when you pile up close to 400 yards on offense (381 to be exact), while holding the opponent to 13 points—it would be considered dominant.
But when you allow 383 total yards of offense—to a team seemingly devoid of weapons—the skeptics will rear their collective ugly heads.
The name of the game is to win, win, win—no matter what (now I have that stupid song in my head). At 9-2, with zero conference losses, the Saints have won pretty much every conceivable way.
With the playoff race thickening, notching another tally in the win column is all that matters.
With that said, the Saints have a ton of positives to hang their hats on. Conversely, there are a few areas where they should hang their heads.
Let's see who stood out in victory. Here are the complete roster grades for Week 12.
