New Orleans Saints players in action during their 2022 Week 10 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The drop-off in production for the injury-ravaged unit which largely carried the team to its success last season has been striking, singled out as possibly the most significant reason for a sub-.500 record entering Sunday's game in the Caesars Superdome.

That's been the story this season for the offense of the Los Angeles Rams (3-6), the reigning Super Bowl champions. The unit has a kindred spirit in the defense of the New Orleans Saints (3-7), who will look to end a two-game losing streak Sunday.
