Saints News, 10/28/14: Saints Need To Prove They Can Win On The Road

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: "I think there is something that we have to prove. We have to prove we can win on the road," Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton said. "Everything everybody keeps saying, keeps bringing it up, until we prove that we can win on the road, then they’re right."
