Game facts: Saints at Cardinals

Must-win game:  The Saints would be officially eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. 

Going against the odds:  Since 2002, only one team has made the playoffs after starting the season with five or fewer wins through 13 games.

Too many turnovers:  New Orleans has 13 giveaways over its last five games (1-4 record). 

Brees slumping:  For the first time since 2007, Drew Bress has gone back-to-back games with 0 TDs and multiple INTs. 

Improved defense:  After allowing 400.6 yards per game over their first nine contests, the Saints have allowed just 290.5 YPG over their last four.
