New Orleans Saints

Coach: Sean Payton

Key Stats

0 Offensive snaps rookie left tackle Terron Armstead has taken. The third-round pick from Division II Arkansas-Pine Bluff, who has been active for four games and played on special teams, will make his first career start Sunday.

7 Completions for quarterback Drew Brees that gained 18 yards or more in the Saints’ 31-13 win against Carolina on Dec. 8.

24 Games in which Brees has thrown for at least four touchdowns, which ranks second all-time behind Peyton Manning (27). Brees had four TD passes in Week 14 vs. Carolina.

61.5 Saints’ winning percentage (24-15) on the road since 2009, the league’s best road mark over that span. However, the Saints are 3-4 away from the Superdome this season.
