    There is more to a team than yards per game, but many indicators say this is a really good team.

    DVOA rankings:

    Overall: 2nd (behind the Rams)

    Overall Offense: 2nd
    Passing Offense: 8th
    Rushing Offense: 1st
    Brees is the 3rd ranked QB in Defensive Yards Above Replacement and 4th in DVOA.
    Ingram is 3rd ranked RB in Defensive Yards Above Replacement and 3rd in DVOA. Kamara would be 1st in both, if he had enough rushes.
    Ginn is 3rd overall in DYAR and 1st in DVOA. Did not see that coming.
    Saints have the 1st run blocking line and 3rd overall in pass protection. These guys are the real MVPs.

    Overall Defense: 5th
    Weighted Defense: 3rd (reflects more how they're playing now instead of looking at whole season)
    Passing Defense: 4th
    Rushing Defense: 25th
    Line is 10th against the run and 7th against the pass. That's great.

    Overall Special Teams: 25th

    Ingram is now 4th in the league in rushing. Imagine if the Saints had done this years ago!

    Post Week 12: (these make an assumption that the Saints will still have the same personnel)

    Brees is 2nd in yards above replacement and 3rd in DVOA.
    Ingram 1st in yards above replacement and 2nd in DVOA. If he had enough carries to qualify, Kamara would rank 1st and 1st respectively.
    Fleener is 6th in yards above replacement and 1st in DVOA. Might prove this statistic is garbage.

    Since this doesn't seem too popular, I will just make small updates:

    Saints are 2nd overall in DVOA, so they went up after the game in Atlanta. Dropped to 2nd in offense and went up to 9th in defense. Special Teams moved up to 21st.

    The Rams are 1st overall by a comfortable margin while the Saints and Eagles are close at 2nd and 3rd. Who would have called a New Orleans/Los Angeles NFC Title game? Not saying it will happen, but it is in play.
