On Sunday’s 21-16 win against the Atlanta Falcons, the New Orleans Saints found themselves short-handed along the defensive line. Even though Sheldon Rankins was making his return, the team had lost Marcus Davenport to a delayed concussion symptoms during the practice week and soon lost defensive tackle Malcom Brown during Sunday’s game.

Despite being down two key players, the Saints defensive line continued to rotate and shift, making it hard for offensive lines to keep up and perform. While the offensive linemen are playing every snap, the Saints continue to sub in and out fresh legs. With Rankins back, a larger focus on twists and stunts were present as well.
