    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league. Numerous giveaways against the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, or Panthers might not give you the same result in the standings. The Saints end the season with the Falcons and the Bucs. If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score.

    The Saints racked up three turnovers, flagged for 92 yards in penalties, and still beat the Jets 31-19. Brandon Coleman lost two fumbles in Jets territory, and Drew Brees threw an interception inside his own 20. It was no doubt ugly, but the Saints still got a "W." They lead the NFC South via tiebreaker over the Panthers with a 10-4 record. "I didn't feel like it was one of our better games. Nonetheless, we were able to do what we had to do win a game.

    Brandon Coleman lost two fumbles inside the Jets 30-yard line. Drew Brees threw an interception inside the Saints own 20. The Black and Gold lost offensive guard Larry Warford with a concussion right before half. All off these negatives, and the Saints still beat the Jets, 24-19. The Jets came into the contest with a 5-8 record, and played without their starting quarterback. A weakened New York squad no doubt helped out with the final outcome.  Brees went 25-of-35 passing for 2...

The Saints lost key contributors in the contest due to injury. Do-everything running back Alvin Kamara took a helmet-to-helmet hit from former LSU Tiger Deion Jones.
