Saints' offense off to sputtering start

(TSX / STATS) -- METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints' usually potent offense hasn't been up to its standard during a 0-2 start.

Now it has to contend with the NFL's No. 1 defense when New Orleans plays NFC South rival Carolina (2-0) on Sunday in Bank of America Stadium.

The Saints ranked second in the NFL in scoring (29.3 points per game) last season, but after losses to Minnesota and New England they are tied for 15th (19.5) this season.
