(WVUE) -

The Black and Gold offense is in some rarefied air, 14 games into the regular season. The Saints are the only team in the NFL to have 3 players with 1,000+ scrimmage yards each this season.

Mark Ingram racked up 1,420 total yards so far. Rookie running back Alvin Kamara is right behind him with 1,336 yards. Michael Thomas joined the duo this Sunday, and now stands at 1,085 yards from scrimmage. All three scored a touchdown against the Jets.

"You know it's an interesting stat. I don't know if you ever go in with the idea you're going to have that balance with the runners, and the way Mike (Thomas) is playing. Look those have all been playmakers for us," said Saints Head Coach Sean Payton. "Those guys have been consistent. They've done a very good job. I wouldn't have a reference if that's happen before. For instance, here in any given season. I imagine there have been years where we've had runners, and maybe Jimmy Graham and a receiver. But with the length of our season, sometimes you get lost in some of those numbers."

    When the Saints met as a team for the final time of the 2017 season this week, it didn’t take long to figure out the premise of their offseason organizational message. Sean Payton: “"There's nothing promised. I think we've got a lot to do this offseason. We've got a lot of work to do in a lot of areas we've got to address.  I think I would just say we'll see."” Drew Brees: “While I think we do have a talented team, I know that each year you hav...more>>
