Winless New Orleans was 26th, up a spot after its 28-27 loss to the Packers.
“Not even an impassioned speech from Drew Brees at a midweek team meeting was enough to get the Saints in the win column,” said Bob Glauber of Newsday. “Stunningly, the season’s just about over after a month.”
Winless Cleveland was 32nd and last for the second straight week.
“That’s 13 losses in their last 14 games, and, no, that’s never a good sign for a head coach about to gain a new boss,” said Clark Judge of CBSSports.com.
