Saints vs Vikings: A Preview

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin //@WhoDatWarriors

NFL Playoffs – NFC Divisional Round

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line may be a weak link the New Orleans Saints can exploit in Sunday’s Divisional playoff game.

The Vikings most recent game loss was on December 10 when they played the Carolina Panthers.  The loss to the Panthers is notable because the offensive line had to be reshuffled, and the Vikings gave up a season-high six sacks to the Panthers, including a strip-sack that lead to a Panthers field goal.

During that game Vikings rookie, Danny Isidora played left guard.  Rashod Hill struggled at left tackle. The Vikings were playing from behind and had to pass the ball to win.  Vikings wide receiver, Adam Thielen, stated “We have to put those guys in better positions by starting fast and scoring early because then they don’t know if you’re going to run the ball or pass the ball. It’s complementary football,” Thielen added. “I think that’s why we haven’t [given up many] sacks this whole year because we’ve been able to score points and take pressure off those guys.”

Looking back at the Saints since the pinnacle of their 2009 Super Bowl success, you would have to say this team is full of survivors who know how to change and become better.  A list of what they have survived:

Previewing Saints and Rams

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin //@WhoDatWarriors

 

New Orleans Saints versus Los Angeles Rams will provide an optimum window into each team. The teams are vying for the 3rd and 4th seeds in the NFC playoff picture. The following are my impressions from watching the Rams games heretofore.

These thoughts should be considered in light of the fact that defensive end Alex Okafor (out for season), cornerback Marshon Lattimore, and cornerback Ken Crawley will not be in the game for the Saints.

How The Saints and Redskins Match Up

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin // @WhoDatWarriors

The New Orleans Saints will face the Washington Redskins this Sunday.  It can be argued as their first matchup against a good quarterback who is not suffering with an injury since Tom Brady.  They faced Cam Newton and Jameis Winston both of whom were working through shoulder problems, and a banged up Matthew Stafford.

This could be their toughest test during their current winning streak. The Washington Redskins will be without running back Robert Kelley, defensive back DeAngelo Hall, and possibly wide receiver Ryan Grant.

Streaker not the only thing exposed in Bills loss to the Saints

Official Bills Reporter

By Mary Pesarchick // @HeyMom418

Near the end of the Buffalo Bills’ humiliating 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, a streaker, with literally nothing except copious amounts of alcohol to protect him from the 47 degree temperatures, jumped out onto the field. The completely naked man, later identified as Tristan Lambright, 29, managed to run free for more than 70 yards before he was subdued by security.

Needless to say, the faithful fans who stayed to the bitter end of the game were delighted with this spectacle. They cheered loudly as Lambright sprinted to the end zone, accomplishing something that the Bills’ offense failed to do all day. Twitter exploded with fans’ observations that Lambright had a longer run from scrimmage than either running back LeSean McCoy or quarterback Tyrod Taylor had managed all season.

Some fans, not completely kidding, urged Bills general manager Brandon Beane to sign Lambright to the team. There were also suggestions that Beane sign the security personnel as they, unlike the Bills defense, actually managed to tackle a runner.

NFL Officiating Reaches New Low With Zach Miller Catch

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Saints 20 – Bears 12

The Chicago Bears were ready to take on the New Orleans Saints in an attempt to make it three wins in a row.  The Bears defense was doing its best to give the offense a chance to make things happen. Even though the Saints were up by 11, a touchdown here would have made it a 4 – point game.  Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is staring at an all-out blitz coming his way with four seconds left to throw the ball. He sees his favorite target, tight end Zach Miller in the end zone and he chucks the rock 65 yards.

The ball sails through the air, as Bears fans hold their breath in anticipation of the catch they know Miller will make. Miller leaps up to catch it and it is at that moment, the unimaginable happens. While in the air, Miller wraps his hands around the ball, but as soon as his foot touches the ground, his knee snaps.

Week 6 Detroit Lions Pride Report

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Lions 38 – 52 Saints

The Lions were in New Orleans today to take on the Saints.   In the recent past, the Superdome hasn’t been a bad place to play for the Lions.  The last 2 times they played there, they’ve won.  They’ve one the last 3 games against the Saints.  Coming off of a loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, the Lions came into the Superdome to try and right the ship.  Well, that didn’t go to well.  Tons of injuries, turnovers, and just “Shanahan-igans” all around.  It was a regression from earlier in the season.   Not exactly what the team was going for this week.

Coming off of a loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, the Lions get to travel to New Orleans to take on the New Orleans Saints.  I decided to chat with an old friend,  Greg Barber.  Greg is a huge Saints fan. We’ve had him on our podcasts and webcasts before, and it’s always fun getting to talk to Greg!  Then at the end, he switched it up and asked me some questions!

Cue The Adrian Peterson Era in Arizona

NFC Coordinator
Page Gerrick Denny

by Page Gerrick Denny // @PDenny29

The Arizona Cardinals made a stunning move this morning by trading a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft pick for New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson, and for the second time this year have released running back Chris Johnson.

This move to add a running back comes a month after their September roster addition of former Patriots running back D.J. Foster, who played college football just 30 minutes away, at Arizona State University.
