METAIRIE, La. (BRPROUD) — There’s a sense of frustration in the New Orleans Saints locker room among offensive players. New Orleans has only scored four offensive touchdowns through four games and has gone 19 consecutive drives without a touchdown.
Although losing two straight and struggling to score is cause for concern, the Saints aren’t hitting the panic button. New Orleans says they know what’s wrong and where to fix it. Now, it’s just about quickly proving it.
“It’s frustrating because I think we can be better than we are,” Saints head coach Dennis Allen said. “And yet, look, we’re sitting here four games into the season at 2-2, one game back in our division. And so, we’re not going to sit here and act like the sky’s falling and the season’s not over. Do we have to get better? Freakin A right we do. And we need to do it quickly.”
“I’ve been through tougher times than this,” Derek Carr, Saints quarterback, said. “We’re going to be all right. You know, we want to get back on track just as bad as everybody wants us to. And we know what we’re capable of. So the best thing is we just go out there and try and prove it again this Sunday and make the corrections from what we’ve talked about, make our adjustments. We have the right people, that’s for sure.”
The Saints have gone 10 straight games scoring 21 points or less, the longest streak in the NFL. New Orleans is now challenged with getting back on track with two-straight road games.
