Biehl has been consistent in his message this season about taking things one game at a time. The Saints don’t look ahead to any opponent and have played in some tough situations this season. They have played four of their games on short weeks.

As a team, the Saints are averaging 40.6 points per game and have outscored opponents 203-67.
