The Saints employed their usual array of formations and personnel groupings early but went to a lot of spread formations once injuries depleted the Cardinals' secondary. Once they grabbed the big lead, the Saints went to their "22" personnel package and tried to move the chains and run out the clock.

Here's the breakdown of the reps at each skill position: WR -Colston 43; Henderson 42; Meachem 31; Lance Moore 14. TE - D.Thomas 42; Shockey 21; Zach Strief 16. RB - P.Thomas 28; Bush 25; Bell 7; L.Hamilton 6; FB - Eckel 24; D.Thomas 7.

Here's a look at the Saints' personnel packages on their 66 offensive snaps:

1WR/2TE/1RB/1FB - 18 out of 66
3WR/1TE/1RB - 15 out of 66
2WR/1TE/1RB/1FB - 15 out of 66 plays
