Zach Strief:  Saints defense is elite

Zach Strief: Saints defense is elite USA TODAY Sports December 16, 2018 Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowThe Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys get a lot of love for their impressive defenses, but the Saints have been left out of that conversation. In the NFL scoring points have been the rave. We love offensive football, but we should appreciate what the Saints are doing on defense. When you think of elite defenses certainly you think of the aforementioned Bears and Cowboys, right Do you consider the Saints defense elite You should, says the Voice of the Saints Zach Strief. They are an elite defense. One of the top defenses in football right now. The Saints have been dominant in second halves of games, Strief said. The Black & Gold defense has indeed been really potent in the second half of their last two games, pitching shutouts over Tampa and Dallas.Believe it or not, the Saints defense is a top 10 scoring defense. Opponents average 21 points per game. They are the top run defense in the NFL giving up just 77 yards a game. Look at the defensive line, defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins and defensive end Cameron Jordan have 20 combined sacks. The team has a total of 41 sacks with three games to play. The front seven is playing great The Saints defensive line is one of the most dominant defensive lines in football, if not the most dominant defensive lines in football, Strief pointed out. Whats more The Saints defense has held opposing offenses to twenty points or fewer in nine games. Currently the Saints have held their last five opponents to under twenty points.Sure, the Saints defense is aided by the fact that the offense averages 34 points per game, and that is great complimentary football. Strief says for the better part of this season the Saints have actually been led by the defense. Its why we had those blowout games in the middle of the season. It was defensive it was not the explosiveness of the offense. It was the defensive side of the ball getting the ball back in large numbers and in great field position, Strief pointed out. Think about what Zachs saying. Hes an offensive lineman he knows what a good defense looks like. If anything, he would likely be a little biased towards the offense. The Saints offense gets all the headlines in New Orleans, but its time for the Saints defense to get some love locally and nationally. This is about as balanced a team that I have covered in my 10 years affiliated with Saints football. Three games to go in the regular season and the Saints might have to win them all to maintain the top seed in the NFC. When the Saints return to the dome against the Steelers, I want to hear some chants of D-E-F-E-N-S-E D-E-F-E-N-S-E D-E-F-E-N-S-E Theyve earned it.

Here is what the Cajun Cannon wants to see from the Saints in order to pull off the win.Get after Cam Newton:Hes been injured, and the book on him isif you harass him, hit and sack himhes going to get erratic in the pocket and make mistakes, the Cannon said. Newton is dealing with a banged up right throwing shoulder for the better part of the season. Two weeks ago Cam threw four interceptions against Tampa.Get off to a fast start:Jump on them early Crush their fragile confidence. Dont let a team, that has lost five in a row think they can hang with you, explained an excited Hebert. Some in Carolina wonder if the Panthers have already started to think about next year.Get back to the big play:The Saints offense hasnt been very explosive lately with big plays. That element needs to return. Im concerned about the vertical passing threat with the Saints right now. We have to see some of that in this game, if we are going to be encouraged about the playoffs, Hebert added.Bobbys prediction: Its hard to beat a team four times in a row, but I like the Saints to win and cover 27-17 over the Panthers, says the Cajun Cannon.

Carolina sits at 6-and-7, riding a five-game losing streaking thats all but taken them out of the playoff conversation. Saints QB Drew Brees knows how vital a win Monday would be, with the top seed in the NFC on the line.Keep building on what weve already established, what weve already accomplished and understand each game becomes the most important game, because theres so much at stake, said Brees.The Saints swept the Panthers last year in two regular season games and won in the Dome during the playoffs.The Panthers season has gone so wrong theres even rumors it could be the last for coach Ron Riviera, whose team has lost a series of nail biters over the last month. Its been a down year for the usually potent Panthers defense, but Brees knows theyre still loaded with talent, especially at linebacker.They fly around, play with a ton of energy and emotion, obviously Luke Kuechly is one of the best to ever do it, hes the quarterback of that defense and has a lot of good players around him, said Brees.Offensively, Carolina has been carried by second-year running back Christian McCaffery, the diminutive swiss army knife has rushed for 926 yards, and has another 701 receiving yards.Kick-off is at 7:15.

A Rams loss would give the Saints room to breathe in their quest for home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but its still too soon for any NFC team to clinch that honor this week.With the same record as the Saints, the Rams would also benefit from a Bears loss. Its possible both the Saints and Rams could secure a first-round bye this week.Click here for playoff scenarios for Week 15 of the NFL. Tags: New Orleans Saints NFC Playoffs Comments
