Saints defense continues to crumble on third-and-long

NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Saints failed in just about every area Sunday. But the one that stood out above all others in their 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals was third-down defense.

“Hey, listen, our third-down defense was awful. It wasn’t good,” said Saints coach Sean Payton, who correctly pointed out that the Saints have had persistent problems in third-and-long situations throughout the year.

The Bengals opened their rout Sunday with three third-and-8 conversions on their first touchdown drive.
