Who would have thought that the Saints could have such a strong start. New Orleans offense came out firing on all cylinders this season blowing teams out.

With Scoring 120 points in three games the Saints are on pace to score 640 points. Drew Brees could throw for 70+ touchdowns and another 5,000 yard season.

For the first time since 2006, New Orleans will start the first quarter of the season with a winning record. The main reason why this has been able to be accomplished is that New Orleans has a strong running game.

The Saints leading rusher for the first two games was out last week against the Bills. Yet New Orleans was still able to rush for over 200 yards last week. Pierre Thomas didn't touch the ball till the second half and in 14 attempts rushed for over 100 yards and two touchdowns.

Yes New Orleans did not show the type of offense they played with in the first two games of the season. Saints fans now know that if Brees has a sub-par game that there running attack can bail them out.

So the Saints currently sit at the top of the NFC South at 3-0 and will facing a strong 3-0 Jets team this coming week. No doubt we will see another strong performance from the Saints running game.
