Brees: Saints offense will be fine despite slump

Drew Brees dismissed the Saints' offensive slump during the past few games as an aberration.

The past four years back him up.

"I know what we're capable of and I know that if you just look at our track record, the last three out of four years we've had the No. 1 offense in the league," Brees said. "That's a body of work. That's not just a stretch of games here and a stretch of games there."

Coming into their playoff opener at home this Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals, the Saints are coming off what would be a lousy stretch of games by the standards of their offense. In their last three regular season games - also their only three losses of the season - the Saints averaged 307.3 yards and 14.6 points.

Those numbers could have been skewed downward because Saints coach Sean Payton rested numerous regulars, including Brees, in their 23-10 loss at Carolina in Week 17. Still, New Orleans was unable to score more than 17 points in either of its first two losses to Dallas and Tampa Bay.
