and I showed that it's misleading because the Saints have outscored the Falcons by almost a whole touchdown during both teams runs.

The Falcons scored more than the Saints in the beginning of the season, but the Saints are now playing better on offense later in the season than the Falcons.

Later>Earlier

Like I said earlier, if yall want that stat yall can have it. But deep down I know the Saints offense is outperforming the Falcons offense when it really matters.

The Saint didn't outscore the Falcons, because they did not beat the Falcons. You get on here with your two log in names, and try to defend yourself. The fact of the matter is this. You need us to lose to someone beside you to have a chance. Don't forget, you still have Tampa, and they can destroy your chances.

Cmon now. lets not beat blind loyalists and talk trash to the Saints fans when we beat them on a fluke. If we play that game a million times they win 999,999 of them. We have some issues in the secondary that needs to be fixed prior to the Saints game. We need to take them seriously. Like Deion always says our secondary scares him

Are you stupid? They got to tie the game on a fluke play.

So, based on what the average opponent of the teams we played scored against them . . . we both scored about 36 points more than would have been expected against the defenses on our schedule over the past five games.

More or less, with ours being slightly more impressive considering who we played.

STFU!! what fluke play? flukier than missing an extra point distance FG on OT?

What is "flukier" than a ball bouncing on a punt and hitting a guy on the calf literally milliseconds before his toe hits the out of bounds chalk? Without that happening we could have very well done what we had been doing all game to that defense and just eat up the clock and score again.

Yes our pass defense is 24th...but the Patriots are 31st and I don't hear Deion or anyone else being concerned about them. We're 7th in the NFL in scoring Defense and have beaten 3 of the top 6. Most important we have an outstanding TEAM with excellent leadership. Fluke???? I don't think so.

Ok. Broke it down even more. Including how the teams are expected to do at home or on the road, expectedly vs how the respective teams(Atlanta or New Orleans) Actually did against them in that situation.

First, Atlanta:

21.285 to 18.286

16.714 to 12.285

20 to 16.167

18.167 to 24

9.857 to 26.43

86 to 97.742

So Atlanta's opponents, in aggregate, taking into account being at home or on the road, would have expected to score 86 points and allow roughly 98 points.

In those five games Atlanta actually scored:

139 and allowed 89

Therefore

Offense: +41 (Scored 41 more than an average team would be expected to in the situation)

Defense: +3 (Allowed three more than a normal team would be expected to in the situation)

Now for New Orleans over their last five:

9.857 to 26.42857

26.857 to 30.857

22.0 to 27.67

17.857 to 24.42857

17.0 to 28.0

93.57 to 137.38

So New Orleans opponents, in aggregate, taking into account being at home or on the road, would have expected to score about 94 points and allow roughly 138 points.

In those five games New Orleans actually scored:

165 and allowed 92

Therefore:

Offense: +28 (Scored 28 more than an average team would be expected to in the situation)

Defense: - about 2 (Allowed about two less than a normal team would be expected to in the situation)

So Atlanta actually did better offensively given their schedule than New Orleans did given their schedule.

QED.
