Sometime between Sunday, Jan. 10, and early February, Drew Brees will throw his final pass as a New Orleans Saint. Here's a tribute to the record-shattering future first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback.
The New Orleans Saints hope to have star running back Alvin Kamara and the whole gang back for their opening-round playoff contest against the Chicago Bears in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, Jan. 10.
Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes and the New Orleans Saints’ defense intercepted the Carolina Panthers five times and in the regular season finale in Charlotte, N.C. to take home the win and the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
LSU football has done a nice job lately re-recruiting its roster and making sure veteran players return. Senior defensive end Andre Anthony announced via Twitter that he would be returning for another season in Baton Rouge.
The New Orleans Saints have placed running back Alvin Kamara on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team confirmed Friday, Jan. 1. He will miss Sunday’s game against the Panthers and the first playoff game is in question.
The Saints are coming off a 52-point explosion against the Minnesota Vikings but there were still a few throws Brees would like to have back. Despite those miscues, No. 9 did become the first player in NFL history to reach 80,000 yards through the air.
Some of the top priorities for the Black and Gold this week are rest and relaxation, especially for the defense following its 92-play performance against the Chiefs. Seven players didn't practice or were limited.
The New Orleans Saints fell to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 13, snapping a nine-game win streak. The Saints’ defense also snapped a 55-game streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher. The Eagles had two players run the ball for more than 100 yards.
A once struggling New Orleans Saints defense has now become the tough group many expected before the season began. The recent addition of former LSU linebacker Kwon Alexander certainly appears to be paying dividends for the Black and Gold.
