Saints bye week review:

The New Orleans Saints have settled their secondary and haven’t had many coverage busts since playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the season opener, which has been more palatable for the coaching staff.

But one of the reasons for the better organization has been a slight shift in philosophy for the secondary. While the team still uses single-high safety coverages regularly, the defense has mixed in more Tampa 2 looks to help settle the defense.

The coverage is a variant of Cover 2, which features two deep safeties covering a zone. In Tampa 2, the middle linebacker is asked to cover the deep middle area of the field.
