In Week 15, the Saints played one of their best football games of the 2011 season.
They beat the Minnesota Vikings, 42-20, on the road in Minneapolis. The Saints were nearly perfect in every facet of the game. On a day like the Saints had against the Vikings, it is difficult to critique anything that they did.
The Saints offense gained 573 yards and the defense only gave up 207 yards to the Vikings. They were able to contain the NFL's best running back, Adrian Peterson, to just 60 yards, and the Saints tormented Minnesota's injury-stricken secondary for three brutal hours. The defensive line put pressure on Christian Ponder, and the offensive line kept Jared Allen away from Drew Brees.
The Saints just played great football.
However, Brees and Sean Payton will be dissecting this game tape and pinpointing all of their mistakes so that they can improve in the coming weeks.
With that being said, I will grade every Saints starter based on their performance in Sunday's game. I say every starter, but let's face it, the Saints really have about 30 different starters on their team. They just so happen to rotate them in and out.
Let's look at the Week 15 grades for every starter on the New Orleans Saints.
