Christian Petersen

The Arizona Cardinals play the New Orleans Saints. Historically, Arizona holds a slight lead in the matchup -- 14-12, but they are 4-6 in the Superdome.

Here are some of the facts.

Stats:

The Saints have the ninth-rated offense and the 11th-rated defense; however, they are 27th against the run.

Arizona has the 13 best offense and the 16 best defense. They are number three against the run.

History:

The last time the two teams played, it was the Hall of Fame game in 2012. Before that, the Saints came to Arizona and left as losers in 2011 t Max Hall.

Connections:

There are no player connections. Coaches, though, is a different story. Bruce Arians was once a tight ends coach. Tom Moore was a freeway quote from Abraham. Tom Pratt coached for the Saints from 1998

Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu and Kevin Minter played for LSU, so they are familiar with things.
