Saints Just Another Team To Manning These Days

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The team Peyton Manning grew up loving is nothing more, or less, than the next team on the quarterback’s schedule this week.

And because Manning gave up cheering for the New Orleans Saints long ago, the Broncos quarterback has been spared a lot of heartache this season.

As Manning gets ready to play his dad’s old team on Sunday, he looks at the tape and sees what is shaping up as one of the worst defenses in the history of the league. Through six games, New Orleans has allowed 2,793 yards — more than any team since 1950, which is as far back as STATS LLC can search its NFL database.
