Some of the New Orleans Saints’ statistical leaders aren’t who you’d expect at this point in the season. Despite putting together a solid 3-2 record (which could have been better with fewer self-inflicted problems in their Week 4 upset loss to the Giants) and finding tremendous success in the red zone and on third downs, some of their top performers have come from unlikely places.

They’ll have a chance to continue building momentum in Week 7’s road game with the reeling Seattle Seahawks. Here are the Saints’ statistical leaders after five games:
