Four teams rank among the NFL's top 10 in both most points scored and fewest points allowed. That the Saints are one of them stands among the NFL's surprises this season (the Rams, Jaguars and Seahawks are the others). New Orleans' improved play on defense -- albeit against some limited offenses -- explains why two of three insiders took them to win at Buffalo.
"There is probably no team hotter than the Saints now," one of the insiders said. "They can cover long enough to make it hard for Tyrod [Taylor] to get some of his junk throws. I don't think Buffalo is going to be able to stop New Orleans on offense."
