Saints coach Sean Payton expressed concern on Monday that his first-place team eventually will falter if it fails to improve the way it defends snaps from within 20 yards of its own goal line."There's a ton of football left Cheap Marcus Williams Jersey ," said Payton, whose Saints (7-1) are riding a seven-game winning streak as they prepare to travel to Cincinnati (5-3). "There's a ton of things we have to improve on and we need to improve on, or it's going to hurt us later. Red zone defense 鈥?that has to get better."While Payton emphasized that there are a number of corrections that need to be made from week to week, a half-season's worth of poor numbers on red zone snaps is "the one area that is bothering me."Saints opponents have scored touchdowns on 20 of 28 drives (71.4 percent) that have included at least one play run from inside the Saints 20. That ranks 28th out of 32 teams in defensive red zone efficiency."You can't find any team having success later in the season with the numbers that we currently have," Payton warned. "We've got to find a way to improve that."Payton's caution comes even as his team holds the inside track to the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs following a 45-35 victory over the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. In that game, the Rams ran red-zone plays on five separate possessions. Three of those drives ended with touchdowns, one ended with a field goal and another ended when the Rams were stopped just short of a first down on a fake field goal.Technically, that represented an improvement in defensive red-zone efficiency relative to the club's percentage over eight games. It just wasn't good enough to allay Payton's anxiety.Because the Saints are scoring nearly 35 points per game, they're likely to win even if their defense gives up a lot of yards, as long as it thrives at stopping opponents short of the end zone and forcing field goals 鈥?or creating turnovers.Linebacker Damario Davis said the key to improving in the red zone is preparing better during the week for the plays that upcoming opponents have been most adept at running in that area of the field."It comes down to understanding how teams want to attack you down there and being locked into what they're going to try to do," Davis said. "Knowing your assignment and doing your assignment 鈥?I just think it comes down to that."But Davis also suggested that the Saints defense won't want to become so preoccupied with its red zone play that it neglects other aspects of the game plan."We have our goals every week. All of them are important," Davis said. "You've got to be good in the red zone. You've got to be good on third down. You've got to be good on first and second down in the pass game. You've got to stop the run. You've got to find a way to get takeaways. Those are our goals every week. When we do those http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...x-okafor-jersey , we're usually successful. When we don't, it's not a good day." The 2018 New Orleans Saints have been an enigmatic team: coming into the season with all sorts of high expectations, the Saints were thoroughly dominated by the Tampa Bay Bucs in the season opener, then squeaked by the Cleveland Browns in week two.The task was not getting any easier this afternoon in Atlanta, as the Saints faced their division archrival, the Atlanta Falcons, with each team looking to go to 2-1 and put their opponent in an early divisional hole.1st HALF The Saints came out of the gate smoking, after the Falcons had won the toss and deferred to the second half. New Orleans marched 75 yards down the field in a blink to take a 7-0 lead on a Drew Brees’ pass to Ted Ginn Jr. The Falcons would answer on their second possession, with Matt Ryan finding Calvin Ridley who abused P.J. Williams on that drive, to tie the game at 7. The Saints defense would tighten things up, with rookie Marcus Davenport notching his first NFL sack. Drew Brees and the offense would flirt with the end zone but only come up with field goals to extend the Saints lead to 13-7. In the process, Brees became the NFL all-time leader in completions when he reached 6 http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...-ginn-jr-jersey ,301, passing Brett Favre.The Falcons would wrestle the lead back in a two-play, 75-yard drive that saw Calvin Ridley continue to roast P.J. Williams, catching a 75-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan and giving Atlanta a 14-13 lead after the extra point. After a punt by the Saints, the defense forced the Falcons into a three-and-out, giving the Saints the ball back with 40 seconds left. In two passes to Alvin Kamara and Benjamin Watson, the Saints got into field goal and Wil Lutz converted a 45-yard field goal to give New Orleans a 16-14 lead at halftime.2nd HALFThe Falcons started the second half with the ball, quickly getting into the Saints red zone on a pass interference by Ken Crawley on the unstoppable Calvin Ridley. Matt Ryan would find Ridley again for a touchdown, giving the Falcons a 21-16 lead. After a punt by the Saints, the defense would step up once again and force the Falcons into a punt, which was blocked by the Saints. Craig Robertson returned the punt to Atlanta’s 16-yard line. Drew Brees would then find Cameron Meredith for his first touchdown as a Saint to put New Orleans back in front 23-21.The Falcons would not wait to respond, driving right down the field on their next possession Cheap Alex Anzalone Jersey , with Matt Ryan hitting running back Tevin Coleman for a touchdown, and the Falcons converting the two-point try to retake the lead 29-23. In a game of: “anything you can do I can do better,” the Saints marched right down the field, actually mixing up the run and the pass and using a Wild Cat formation to run Taysom Hill deep into Falcons territory. On 4th and goal from the one-yard line, Drew Brees found fullback Zach Line for a touchdown and the see-saw after continued with New Orleans taking a 30-29 lead, the seventh lead change of the game.The Falcons would waste no time getting back into the Saints’ red zone on a 58-yard bomb to Julio Jones. The Saints thought they had held Atlanta to a field goal try, but a personal foul by David Onyemata who hit the center on the field goal attempt gave the Falcons a first-and-goal. On the very next play, Matt Ryan hit Mohamed Sanu for a touchdown, followed by a two-point conversion to Sanu again, to give the Falcons a 37-30 lead.What did you expect would happen? Of course, the Saints then drove right down the field and into Falcons territory on the back of runs by Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn Jr. and they would get into the end zone with a run by none other than quarterback Drew Brees himself. Wil Lutz would tie the game at 37, with a minute and 15 seconds left in the game. The Falcons would have one last chance to go ahead http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/...ersey-authentic , but the Saints defense stopped them to take the game into overtime.OvertimeThe Saints would win the toss and take the ball, immediately driving deep into Falcons territory. Never giving the Falcons a chance to possess the ball, New Orleans would punch it in the end zone with Drew Brees’ patented “Fleur-de-Leap” to give the good guys a 43-37 win. Phew! and WHO DAT Y’ALL, the Saints are 2-1***Below is a timeline of the game:1st QuarterFalcons win the toss and defer to the second halfBrees finds Michael Thomas for a 39-yard reception on the first playSaints get into the red zone in the blink of an eyeBrees finds Ted Ginn Jr. for a touchdownNO: 7 - ATL: 0Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineSaints defense forces the Falcons into a three-and-outSaints take over at their 21-yard lineSaints go three-and-out and have to puntFalcons take over at their 19-yard lineFalcons get into Saints territoryMatt Ryan finds Calvin Ridley for a touchdownNO: 7 - ATL: 7Saints start at their 25-yard lineSaints get into Falcons territory at the 44-yard line as the quarter ends2nd QuarterSaints’ drive stalls and they puntFalcons start at their 20-yard Marcus Davenport sacks Matt Ryan and forces the Falcons to puntSaints take over at their 38-yard line and get into Falcons territoryBrees ties Brett Favre for the all-time lead in completions in the NFL at 6,300Saints stall and Wil Lutz makes a 49-yard field goalNO: 10 - ATL: 7Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineFalcons stall and have to puntSaints take over at their 27-yard lineBrees finds Michael Thomas for apass near midfieldBrees is now the all-time leader in completions in the NFL with 6,301Saints get into the red zone on a pass to Ben WatsonSaints stall and Wil Lutz makes a 21-yard field goalNO: 13 - ATL: 7Falcons take over at their 25-yard lineMatt Ryan finds Calvin Ridley who roasts P.J.
