Saints' depth, adaptability on display during win streak

NEW ORLEANS (AP) As far as Saints coach Sean Payton is concerned, there were meaningful storylines coming out of New Orleans' lopsided victory at Denver that had nothing to do with the Broncos being forced to play without a true NFL quarterback.

The Saints, after all, scored 31 points against a Denver defense that was not similarly short-handed. And New Orleans did so without record-setting quarterback Drew Brees or two starting offensive linemen - tackle Terron Armstead (COVID-19) and guard Andrus Peat (concussion) - on the left side of the line.

Payton decided a conservative, run-heavy offensive game plan was in order when he learned all four of Denver's quarterbacks would be ineligible to play on Sunday because of their failure to strictly adhere to NFL COVID-19 protocols. Saints fill-in starter Taysom Hill attempted 16 passes and New Orleans still won by four touchdowns while holding a more than 10-minute advantage in time of possession.
