TD drive #2 (score 14-14): 6 plays, 80 yards, 2:43 elapsed
FG Drive (score 28-21): 16 plays, 84 yards, 9:28 elapsed
Our offense had their way with NO's #32 ranked defense all day. When it wanted a score, it did so quickly and efficiently. When it wanted to run time off the clock, they kept NO's offense off the field for nearly 10 minutes.
You don't think if we didn't have the benefit of the two defensive TDs, we would've seen more drives resembling the first two? I was thrilled with Sunday's offensive performance.
drive #1: 3 and out
drive #2: 4 plays, 63 yds, TD
drive #3: 5 plays, 15yds, punt
drive #4: 7 plays, 33 yds, punt
drive #5: 4 plays, 12 yds, INT
drive #6: 6 plays, 80 yds, TD
drive #7: 3 plays, 2 yds, punt
drive #8: 16 plays, 85 yds, FG (great drive, but couldn't punch it in)
drive #9: 4 plays, 4 yds, FG MISS (failed drive, offense gets no credit for FG attempt)
drive #10: 7 plays, 31 yds, FG MISS (again started drive in saints territory, FG is minimum for acceptable results)
so let's see. two great drives, one almost great drive (didn't score a TD), two drives started in saints territory with zero points to show.
all this against one of the worst defenses in the league. they give up 290+ passing yds average per game!
you guys impress easily......
