In 2012 the Saints set a new NFL record by allowing 7,042 total yards over the course of the season. It was a horrible ending to an already disappointing season marred by suspensions and Bounty Gate.
That pourous season allowed the Saints to land Rob Ryan after the defensive coordinator was fired in Dallas for running to difficult of a scheme.
This year, Ryan has turned the Saints’ defense around. The same can’t be said for his old team, which is threatening to break the Saints awful record by a huge margin.
After Monday nights awful performance against a Josh McCown Chicago Bears team, the Cowboys’ defense has allowed 3,880 passing yards and 1,669 rushing yards for a total of 5,549 yards on the season.
If the Cowboys allow 1,494 yards over the final three games, they’ll break the Saints record. Dallas would have to give up498 yards a game, over the final three games.
Last night the Cowboys allowed 497 yards to the Bears.
