Gauging how much influence the Saints had on LSU’s offense last season

The Saints produced what might have been the most impactful offense in football last season.

Sean Payton's playbook kept New Orleans among the top-three scoring offenses in the NFL despite being without Drew Brees for multiple games, and many of his passing concepts helped carry LSU to a National Title.

To get a better understanding of how much influence the Saints had on Brady, we looked at every play the Tigers ran last season and compared them to what New Orleans ran last year.
