Saints News, 11/2/15: Saints Revive Season With Epic Victory Over Giants

A 4-4 record is a helluva lot better than 3-5! Talk of the decline of Drew Brees has been greatly exaggerated. The Saints offense remembered how to blow up the scoreboard in yesterday's epic shootout against the New York Giants. On the other side of the ball, the Saints defense still has room for improvement. Much celebrated CB Delvin Breaux isn't ready for Canton just yet.
