Saints Gain Confidence From 31-7 Win Vs. Cardinals

Saints’ Ingram denies trade request report

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer wound up 18 of 35 for 187 yards. He was sacked four times and intercepted twice by the Lance Moore Youth Jersey Saints’ resurgent defense, which ranked last in the league last season. “There’s not a lot of positives other than the beginning of the ball game,” Cardinals first-year coach Bruce Arians said. “We played very poorly.” Here are five things we know from New Orleans’ victory over Arizona: 1. DEFENSIVE DOMINANCE: Ryan’s defense in New Orleans has allowed only four TDs through three games while getting pressure up front and creating turnovers. The unit was encouraged after keeping Arizona scoreless on its last 10 drives, but also pleased by a three-game trend of strong play highlighted by eight sacks and four interceptions. “We’re just buying into the scheme, players are trusting players and we’re playing as hard as we can,” Vaccaro said after making his first career interception against Arizona. “We know we’ve got the talent.” 2. TYRANN’S TALENT: Tryann Mathieu’s stardom in college continues to translate well in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins vs. New Orleans Saints: Breaking Down Miami’s Game Plan

Miami RB Lamar Miller has averaged 6 yards per carry during his last two games (131 yards on 22 carries). … Dolphins TE Charles Clays 203 yards receiving ranks fourth among TEs. … DE Cameron Wake has 8 1/2 sacks in past five games against NFC teams. … Dolphins rookie K Caleb Sturgis is 6 for 6 on field goals, including 3 of 3 from between 40-49 yards, and 2 of 2 from 50 yards or longer. …

The Dolphins may remember Khiry as the player that ripped off 116 yards on 22 carries against them during the preseason, causing the defense to miss six tackles along the way. The good news for the Dolphins defense is that Saints guard Jahri Evans broke a consecutive-starts streak that spanned eight seasons last week when he missed the Cardinals game with a hamstring injury. Even if he plays against Miami, he will not be at full strength. The Saints ground game seems predicated on zone concepts. They consistently run zone-outside and zone-inside plays, getting all of their linemen on the move and allowing their tailbacks to pick a crease. Though the Dolphins will likely be without defensive tackle Paul Soliai for the second consecutive game, defensive tackles Jared Odrick and Randy Starks have the ability to defend against this ground game because of their mobility. The key will be getting their hips into the play-side gaps and maintaining gap control. From there, it is up to Miami’s linebackers to pursue the ball and shut off any cutback lanes.

Film study: Reviewing Saints defense

I noticed that Claire can move around the kitchen, cooking and cleaning up, with Laird attached to her leg. I guess he likes his mother’s legs better than his own, because he did start walking last month. On his own two feet, he looks like a miniature sumo wrestler tottering around the house. Listening to the Saints win Sunday, I learned this distressing news: Saints football is not a high priority in south Georgia. The game wasnt on TV, but Claire downloaded the Saints radio app, and we listened to Jim Henderson and Hokie Gajan, like Stroup and I do every week at home.

Saints morning report: Prime-time players

He (or she) disarms it in time, and crashes through the White House roof to land in the presidents chair. Thanks to the save, the leader of the Saints is elected president. He or she is in the fifth year of office, just getting ready to deal with a massive popularity drop, when aliens invade. The Zin, lead by Zinyak, abduct everyone in the White House, as well as all of the most promising humans from the worlds major cities. Naturally, the Saints are among the abductees. The leader of the Saints finds him or herself trapped in a 1950s, Pleasantville style simulation, which Kinzie helps tries to break him or her out of, and then ends up in a virtual version of Steelport. Kinzie and Vice President Keith David then spring the avatar and bring him or her back into the real world, just in time to see Zinyak destroy Earth and everyone still left on it. Its up to the Saints to head back into virtual Steelport and mess with the simulation enough to somehow topple the Zin empire.

Saints’ third win, birthday cake and grandkid hugs make for a fine weekend

Hardy took home the defensive award after tying a career high with three sacks in the Panther’s 38-0 victory over the New York Giants. He also had a team- high eight tackles, five of which were made behind the line of scrimmage for a total of minus-22 yards. He is the first defensive end for the Panthers to be honored since Julius Peppers (Week 8, 2009). Martin won the special teams award after punting six times, averaging 52.5 yards per punt with a net average of 40.7 yards in the Lions’ 27-20 win at Washington. His average of 52.5 yards per punt was the highest in a game by a Lion with a minimum of six punts since Pat Studstill (53.0) on Sep. 11, 1966. His longest punt of the day was 72 yards, which ranks second in franchise history among rookie punters.

But I love New Orleans. It’s home to me. I love this organization, love my teammates, love my coaches. I’m happy here. And we’re 3-0.

Dolphins-Saints Capsule

Pierluigi Lugano, an Abissi wine maker, checks a Primat, a bottle that contains 27 litres of sparkling wine that was brought to the surface by scuba divers on September 25, 2013 in Chiavari. Pierluigi Lugano is experimenting by storing his wine three to four years in the sea at a depth of 60 metres and some 3 kilometres offshore, where the water temperature remains constant under 6 bars of pressure with a slight deepwater current.

Palmer hit Taylor with a 2-yard pass on third-and-3, but Vaccaro stood Taylor up, wrapped him up and pulled him down short of the first down. Snuffed out: A good example of the deception that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan likes to create came when the Saints snuffed out an attempted screen pass in the second quarter. Lofton faked like he was going to blitz on third-and-7, then he dropped into coverage, preventing Palmer from dumping the ball off to running back Andre Ellington . That allowed Jordan and Walker to both hit Palmer as he barely threw the ball away. Special effort: The Saints also had a good day on special teams.
