It's been a revolving door of defensive coordinators in New Orleans and this year is no different as Dennis Allen steps in for Rob Ryan. It was widely accepted that head coach Sean Payton didn't get along with Ryan whose unit allowed a league-worst 29.8 ppg last season. The media claims that Payton and Allen have been buddy-buddy
and are on the same page heading into the season. The Saints' defense will be tested early on with five of their first seven games against offenses than ranked in the top 11 in the NFL in yard per game last season.
