New, comments

A look at some of the key stats that defined the game and determined the outcome of the Saints 28-27 loss to the Packers this Sunday.

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Despite the fact that the Saints wound up losing this one to the Packers, there are a few positive things to take away this week. Moreso than any of the three weeks prior.

2

Facemask penalties called on Malcolm Jenkins.

3

Incorrect calls by the officials in favor of the Saints (No push off call on Colston TD, Jimmy Graham catch ruled complete despite hitting the ground, no fumble call on Sproles 4th quarter kickoff return).

45

Net yards rushing by the Saints.

54

Pass attempts by Drew Brees.

47

Consecutive games with a passing touchdown for Drew Brees, which ties Johnny Unitas' record.

0

Sacks by the Saints defense.

153

Yards receiving by Marques Colston

1

Touchdown by Joe Morgan, the first of his NFL career. It was an 80-yard bomb.

7

Passing TDs in the game by both teams combined.

0

Rushing TDs by either team in the game.

23

3

Straight passing plays called by the Saints after 1st and goal from the 2-yard line.

2+

Turnover margin for the Saints, which still wasn't enough to get them the win.
