Simply put, the Saints didn't block and
they didn't run. Their leading rusher was Brooks with 15 yards on four carries,
while Deuce McAllister ran 11 times for 8 yards, his lowest output since being
anointed the starter before the 2002 season. Five of McAllister's 11 runs
resulted in no yards or minus yardage. The Saints finished the game with 23
yards on 15 attempts for an average of 1.5 per attempt.
