Saints News, 11/9/15: Saints Have No Defense for Getting Exploited by Rookie Marcus Mariota

From Mike Triplett: The Saints (4-5) allowed rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota to come into the Superdome and tear them up on Sunday during a 34-28 loss to the Titans, who hadn't won a game since Week 1 and just fired their coach on Tuesday. Mariota threw for 371 yards, four touchdowns and a two-point conversion pass. This comes on the heels of Eli Manning's six-touchdown performance in the Giants' 52-49 loss to the Saints in the Superdome last week. As of Sunday night, the Saints ranked 31st in the NFL in yards allowed (414.8 per game) and points allowed (29.8 per game).
