Saints can pass 'Greatest Show on Turf'

Back in the preseason, Roddy White said the Falcons’ offense could be like the “Greatest Show on Turf," a reference to the high-powered St. Louis Rams of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Well, it has turned out that White might have had the right division, but the wrong team.

While the Falcons have been inconsistent on offense, the Saints have had one of the most prolific seasons in NFL history. The all-time record for yards in a season is 7,075, set by the 2000 Rams. The Saints need just 219 yards in Sunday’s regular-season finale to set a new record.

The Saints also can set a record for points scored at home this season. The Saints have scored 284 points in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this year. That puts them in a tie for third on the all-time list. The 2004 Colts (289 points) are No. 2. The 2000 Rams are No. 1 with 292 points.
