Saints D/ST falls shorts in NFC Championship

The New Orleans Saints D/ST recorded one interception and one sack as the team lost to the Rams 26-23 in overtime in the NFC Championship.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints defense was dominant early on, hyped up by an insanely loud crowd that gave Jared Goff problems communicating plays calls. The Rams then converted a fake punt pass to extend a drive and were able to move the ball from there on out. New Orleans' defense finished strong in 2018. They'll have streamer appeal at times next season.
