Defenses look shaky for Packers, Saints

Looks like a couple teams have to outscore opponents. After watching the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints it sure looks like both teams have to come out throwing and putting points on the board at the quickest rate possible.

Both defenses are going to give up points and rushing yardage, which will affect time of possession. The Saints had the ball close to 19 minutes less than the Redskins at home and the Packers had the ball 6 minutes less than the 49ers.


Pat Kirwan has been around the league since 1972, serving in a variety of roles. He was a scout for the Cardinals and Buccaneers, a coach for the Jets as well as the team's Director of Player Administration where he negotiated contracts and managed the team's salary cap. He is the author of Take Your Eye Off the Ball: How to Watch Football by Knowing Where to Look, and the host of Sirius NFL Radio's Moving the Chains.
