Game Preview: Patriots return home to face the Saints

The Patriots will attempt to get back to their winning ways when they face the 5-0 Saints this Sunday. New England (1,683) and New Orleans (1,526) are the two highest scoring NFL teams since 2010, but in 2013 both clubs are playing stingy defense. New England enters this week 2nd in the NFL by allowing just 14.0 points per game, while New Orleans is 4th in the NFL, allowing just 14.6 points per game. The Patriots have allowed 70 points through five games this season, the third-fewest total through the first five games in team history. The 1974 team held opponents to 61 points, while the 2007 team held opponents to 65 points through the first five games.

 

SERIES HISTORY

The Patriots will square off with the New Orleans Saints in a regular season game for the 13th time in team history and for the first time since 2009 when the Patriots traveled to the Superdome for a Monday Night Football game and lost, 38-17, on Nov. 30, 2009. That win snapped a threegame winning streak by the Patriots over the Saints and also ended a streak of 17 straight wins against NFC opponents for New England.
