Saints yield record single-season yardage

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The New Orleans Saints' last-ranked defense has allowed more yards in a season than any defense in NFL history.

The Saints have allowed 287 yards in the first half of Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, surpassing by 6 yards the mark of 6,793 yards allowed by the 1981 Baltimore Colts.

The mark has been set in the final game of defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's first season with the club. Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt, who also coaches linebackers, was a third-year assistant with the '81 Colts.

Struggling to stop big plays all season, the Saints allowed DeAngelo Williams to break loose for a 65-yard run in the second quarter, which set up Mike Tolbert's touchdown.

As Washington continues to evaluate what the next name of the team will be, numerous ideas have been thrown around. However, one moniker, in particular, has grown in popularity on social media each and every day.
