Game facts: Rams at Saints

Next Gen Stat:  In Week 11, Drew Brees went 23-for-27 for 188 yards and 2 TDs when he released the ball in 2.5 seconds or less.  

Mind-blowing stat:  Brees is on pace for 5,243 pass yards this season, which would be the third-most in NFL history.

Deceiving stat:  Mark Ingram averages 4.7 yards per carry, but if not for his 158-yard game against the 49ers (the league's worst run defense), Ingram would be averaging just 3.9 YPC. 

Defense trending up:  The Saints have allowed just 280.0 yards per game and 76.5 rush yards per game over their last two contests. 

Sack total on the rise:  In their last two games, the Saints defense has averaged 4.0 sacks. New Orleans averaged just 1.4 sacks per game over the first eight games.
