Run-stuffing, big-play defense making Saints a tough out

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Even with cornerback Marshon Lattimore injured and unavailable, the New Orleans Saints’ defense again demonstrated its ability to stuff the run, make quarterbacks uncomfortable and tip the balance of a game.

The Saints haven’t lost two straight games since the first two weeks of the 2017 season, and their improvement on defense is a big reason why.

On Sunday at Tampa Bay, the Saints were looking to bounce back from an uncharacteristically woeful loss to Atlanta in which New Orleans was held without a touchdown at home - something that had never happened when Drew Brees was at quarterback.
