Saints snap counts: Team gets extended look at offensive line, secondary depth

Preseason Week 2 snap counts for the Saints. You might say there were some areas the New Orleans Saints took a step back in after their Week 2 preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

However, both Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen finished with good games. Here’s a look at the team’s snap...

Turnover filled night plagues Saints as they lose to the Cardinals

Things never got off to a good start for the Saints, and it was the main theme of Friday night’s preseason loss to the Cardinals. NEW ORLEANS — Preseason Week 2 for Sean Payton and the Saints didn’t start off well, and it was a huge reason the team lost to the Cardinals on Friday night. The Cardinals won the toss and elected to defer to the second half, giving Taysom Hill and company a chance to make something happen to open the game.
