The most of amount of quarterback sacks for the New Orleans Saints in the Sean Payton-era was 38 back in 2006.
With 5 games left in the season the Saints now have 37.
With this sort of pace the Saints look to be in the mid-40’s when the 2013 season is over with.
Give defensive coordinator Rob Ryan a lot of credit for putting the players in the right spot to make a big play defensively, but don’t overlook the emerging talents of Akiem Hicks, Cameron Jordan, John Jenkins, Glenn Foster, Junior Galette and Tom Johnson along the defensive front.
In the 9 victories this season the Saints defense has held opponents to 20 points or less in each winning contest.
