In a season in which the New Orleans Saints have gone from Super Bowl champions to a huge question mark, one thing remains certain about this team. The offense is designed to produce yards after the catch and that’s still happening.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Saints lead the league in yards after the catch (YAC). On 200 receptions, the Saints have generated 2,029 yards and 1,049 of those have come after the catch. No other team is over 1,000 yards and no other NFC South team is even close to the Saints.
The Falcons are No. 17 with 669 yards after the catch. Tampa Bay is No. 22 with 534 yards and Carolina is No. 27 with 455 yards.
