Bills defense trampled in 47-10 loss to Saints

"It's fun whenever we're scoring at will", Ingram said after the Saints set a franchise record with six touchdown runs in their 47-10 rout of the Buffalo Bills. Mark Ingram ran 21 times for 131 yards and three touchdowns, Alvin Kamara added 12 carries for 106 yards and one touchdown, Trey Edmunds ran nine times for 48 yards and a touchdown, and Drew Brees joined the action with a 7-yard rushing touchdown. The six rushing TDs broke a almost 40-year-old record and it was the first time the Saints had two 100-yard rushers since the 2006 season.

The second quarter mirrored the first quarter: The Saints gained 132 yards of offense and scored on both of their possessions while the Bills punted three times and trailed 17-3 at the break. Still, the Saints come to Western New York riding a six-game winning streak after an 0-2 start to the season.

The defense was equally as dominant. The Bills are unbeaten at home this year, and that changes Sunday. And the D almost scored a TD of its own, with defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins intercepting a pass and rumbling 27 yards on the return to Buffalo's 3-yard line in the third quarter.

The only negative from the game was a scary situation involving reserve running back Daniel Lasco.

Weather shouldn't be a factor on Sunday in Buffalo.

The second-year running back had feeling in his extremities and was being attended to by Dr.

The Saints lost their first two games this season but have been relentless since and comfortably lead the NFC South, with a new and improved defence and ground game to the fore. Coach Sean Payton said in his postgame press conference that all signs are positive with Lasco's condition.

Only the Philadelphia Eagles (who have also won seven straight) are preventing the Saints from standing alone as the "hottest team in the National Football League".
