Saints Can’t Stop Cruz and Manning Late; Fall to 0-2 with 16-13 Loss to Giants

If you missed Victor Cruz’s clutch return to the NFL last week after missing more than a season, the 29-year-old New York Giants receiver offered an encore in Week 2. Cruz, who had a winning fourth-quarter touchdown catch against Dallas last week, hauled in a 34-yard third-down pass from Eli Manning to set up Josh […]

Big Day for Brees Spoiled as Raiders Stun Saints 35-34 in Opening Day Setback

For Oakland coach Jack Del Rio, calling for a do-or-die, 2-point conversion was less a gamble than a philosophical declaration. Del Rio had no interest in a conservative point-after kick, and let his offense know it well before the decision had to be made. So when Derek Carr hit Seth Roberts for a 10-yard touchdown […]

Saints Slammed by Cousins and the Redskins 47-14

The Saints defense continued to be awful, and because of it, the team has now lost two in a row after looking at one point to be back in the thick of the NFL race. Sunday in Washington, they allowed Redskins QB Kirk Cousins to put up a perfect QB rating of 158.3 to lead […]

Saints Crumble in Overtime to the Titans 34-28

The Saints defense was back to being awful on Sunday, allowing nearly 500 yards to a one-win a team, and because of it the Saints lost to Tennessee 34-28 in overtime. Marcus Mariota and the Titans were too much, as the rookie QB threw for for a personal-best 371 yards and four touchdowns, including a […]

Brees Ties NFL Record with 7 TD Passes; Saints Top Giants 52-49

Drew Brees and the Saints put on an offensive showcase that no one could have seen coming on Sunday, as the QB tied an NFL record with seven touchdowns as the Saints outlasted the Giants 52-49. Kai Forbath kicked a 50-yard field goal as time ran out for the win for the Saints, who are […]

Saints 0-2 Yet Again; Can’t Find Answers in 26-19 Setback to Buccaneers

Maybe it is finally time to admit the truth. The New Orleans Saints are not that good of a football team. No, they are not the Saints of old, a team called by many the ‘Aint’s,’ but they also are not the high powered offensive team that for the better part of the last six […]

Saints Dominated in Fourth Straight Home Loss; Fall To Panthers 41-10

A number of fans that were late to Sunday’s game at the dome might as well have not even shown up the way the Saints played for the first eight minutes. That was all Carolina would need, as they jumped out to a 17-0 before half of the first quarter was over, and in the […]

Saints Lose Second Straight At Home; Fall Badly to Bengals 27-10

A week after a deflating home loss to the 49ers, the Saints were outmatched, outcoached and most importantly, outplayed as they were beaten soundly at home by the AFC North Cincinnati Bengals 27-10. The loss puts the Saints at 4-6 on the season, but somehow in the worst division in football that’s good enough to […]
