Saints need to start running early


We have quite an interesting matchup this week on "Monday Night Football" (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET) between the Tennessee Titans and the New Orleans Saints.

I was really surprised these teams have struggled after watching them during the preseason and examining their rosters. I expected to see a better team in Tennessee (1-1) and thought the Saints (0-2) were a Super Bowl contender. But after further review, here's my take on what the Saints face in their matchup with the Titans.

The Saints have been plagued by dropped balls, penalties and other miscues offensively. This is a much better team than that, but they aren't playing like it. They aren't seizing the moment at all as the receivers are dropping potentially drive-sustaining passes.
