My comments

  • The {{based on}} template above needs to have the oldid parameter added.
  • The article needs references. Without them, it could be deleted.
  • We don't have a category for the Saints, so I removed it from the article. If you want to create the category, there first needs to be at least three pages to go into it.
  • The article generally needs simplifying. Here are some specifics:
    • Instead of "first ever", just say "first".
    • In several places, the article says things like "would throw another one" or "would rally". That phrasing should be simplified to simple past tense. For example, the wording above could be "threw another one" and "rallied" (although the word rallied itself isn't simple, either, and could be changed to ended up or even just be eliminated).
  • The sentence about the week 14 game being one of the best comebacks is vague. It needs to be explained or removed. What made it one of the best comebacks?
  • The third paragraph needs clarifying because it doesn't make sense in places.
  • The last paragraph in the intro could be removed because it isn't about this topic.

Those are just a few things. If you take care of some of them, I will try to help with the rest. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:34, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

I did some. --74.130.133.1 (talk) 18:45, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
And the last paragraph mentions other 1-15 teams. --74.130.133.1 (talk) 04:28, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
