Saints vs. Bengals Recap: Saints Embarrass Themselves In 27-10 Loss To Bengals

New, comments

Sometimes the other team is just better and has a greater desire for victory. That said, this Saints team lacks both the discipline and heart to compete in the NFL this season. Were they too arrogant to start the season? Did they foolishly start thinking 'We got this' after the wins against Green Bay and Carolina? Whatever the reasons are for their 4-6 record, it's back to the drawing board once again as they prepare this week for another good team in the Baltimore Ravens.
