New Orleans Saints defense answers call

The New Orleans Saints added Gregg Williams, Darren Sharper and Jabari Greer to their defense during the offseason to produce exactly the kind of transformational defensive performance they received in New Orleans’ 45-14 win against the Arizona Cardinals in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday at the Superdome.

The Saints’ aggressive, opportunistic defense didn’t just hold the Cardinals’ high-powered offense in check, they attacked and made things happen on their own.
