The New Orleans Saints is a professional football team that plays in the National Football League as a member club of the NFC (National Football Conference), South Division. They play all their home matches at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The club was established in 1967. The Superdome was damaged in the Katrina Hurricane aftermath due to excessive flooding but the Saints somehow survived that season playing their home games in substitute fields before the Dome was fully repaired before the start of the next season.

The season start has not been great and they sit on a 1-3 record after four games. Their next game is at the Superdome where they clash with the Carolina Panthers on the 16th of this month. After suffering three losses in the start of the season, they finally found some spark to win in a single point game at the home of San Diego Chargers. The saints will have to really push hard from here on if they want to have any chance at qualifying for the post season this year. It will be tough but can be done as proven by the NFL history.

One of the major reasons for the early losses is the absence of the number one choice quarter back Delvin Breaux in the first game of the season. He broke his fibula in the game against the Oakland Raiders. The other reason for this dismal performance at the start of the season is the lack of spark in the Saints defense in all four games they have lost. However, their defensive coordinator Dennis Allen thinks that it is a young defensive unit that is moving in the right direction. Allen said in an interview that the direction is right but the consistency is missing. He believes that consistency is the key to the success of this young defensive Saint’s unit in the remaining of the season.
