A lot of readers have asked if the Saints have set some sort of record by never trailing in any of their five games this season. Well, ESPN Stats & Information just came through with an answer.
It’s been done before, but not for a very, very long time. The Saints are the first team to go this far without trailing since 1961. That’s the year it was done by the San Diego Chargers, then of the American Football League. The Chargers went through their first six games without trailing.
