Packers at New Orleans

Posted:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The last time the New Orleans Saints played a game in the Superdome people were thinking Halloween -- not Thanksgiving -- and the Saints still had a running game.

  By the time New Orleans limps onto the field tonight, the Green Bay Packers will face the top offense and passing game in the NFL, and one of the worst running games.

  New Orleans' ground game was once it's bread-and-butter with the combination of Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister providing strength and flash.

  It now ranks 28th in the league.

  The Saints signed running back Mike Bell and fullback Darian Barnes in hopes of beefing up their sagging rushing attack.

  That came after running back Aaron Stecker became the 13th player put on injured reserve by New Orleans this season.

  Bush has missed three games while recovering from surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee.

  McAllister says his knee will be fine. He wears a brace since surgery last year.
