METAIRIE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Saints have hit just about the halfway point of the NFL season with an improving offense. The New Orleans offense proved it can move the ball, posting more than 400 total yards of offense in three consecutive games.
Last Sunday, the offense proved it can sustain drives and score points going 50% on third down conversions and cashed in on three of four on redzone trips in a win over the Colts.
Now, the Saints are turning their attention to continuing to perfect the little things and use the momentum and confidence they got in their win over the Colts to get hot and finish the second half of the season strong.
“I still think there’s room to improve and I still think we’re, you know, the guys mindset is, yeah, cool, we won, awesome,” said Derek Carr, Saints quarterback. “How do we get better? For us, I’ve seen so many times in this league, you just keep going through the process. It’s a long season. It’s not a short race and everyone is in this process and mentality to get better as fast as they can. So, you’re playing your best at the end of the year. Hopefully, we’ll be one of those teams.”
“I think, like I said last week, I think that was a confidence boost for us. It showed what we can play like, who we can be,” said Ryan Ramczyk, Saints right tackle. “I think we have a ton of confidence going into this game.”
The Saints do have a chance to get hot, starting with a two-win Bears team Sunday that is the league’s worst redzone defense.
New Orleans will also face Bears undrafted free agent rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent Sunday.
