Saints News, 10/27/15: Cameron Jordan, Terron Armstead Living up to Hype

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: According to the scouting service Pro Football Focus, Jordan and Armstead each had the highest grades of their careers in Sunday’s 27-21 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. When asked if those PFF grades matched the way the Saints graded those players internally, coach Sean Payton said, “I don’t know who Pro Football Focus is or who the experts are that are grading the tape for them. But I would say that both of them had real good games.”
