Saints' Jabari Greer Out for Season

Long before Drew Brees went "go-go gadget neck" (his words) in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over San Francisco, Saints fans witnessed another bend the human body is not designed to make, as Jabari Greer's knee appeared to buckle while the cornerback was landing after breaking up a pass. The always-upbeat veteran was smiling and waving as he was carted off the field in a brace, but that's the last time WhoDats will see Greer on the field during this campaign.

Saints Boot 49ers, 23-20

Blood was drawn in the Superdome on Sunday. But, importantly for the Saints, there was not much Gore. The Black and Gold were finally able to find a recipe for victory against the San Francisco 49ers, exacting a measure of revenge after a pair of excruciating losses to Jim Harbaugh's tenacious squad over the last two seasons.

Saints-49ers Preview: N.O. Aerial Attack Meets S.F. Ground Assault

In the fallout after the New Orleans Saints' loss to the New York Jets, Coach Sean Payton lamented his team's inability to stop what everyone knew was coming. "I think everyone at MetLife Stadium knew they were going to run the football, and we weren’t able to stop them," Payton said. In a game that is unlikely to bare much resemblance to last week's drubbing of Dallas, the Saints will have to prove they can stand up to a smashmouth team Sunday in a showdown with the San Francisco 49ers (3:25 p.m., FOX).

Saints' Rob Ryan Buys Victory Rounds at Ms. Mae's (VIDEO)

Rob Ryan is no stranger to Ms. Mae's, and the Saints' defensive coordinator once again visited his Uptown watering hole to celebrate last night's victory against the Cowboys. NoDef reader Rachel Stickney was on the scene to film Ryan cheering with fans after dropping $200 on the bar to buy everyone a round. 

Saints Devour Dallas Cowboys, 49-17

The night wranglers rode again in the Superdome on Sunday Night Football. The New Orleans Saints' exalted offense found another gear and the defense shut down Dalas to score a blowout win over the Cowboys to mark yet another dominant performance in a prime time home game. The Black and Gold improved to 7-2 with the 49-17 win, and marched into the NFL record books with an all-time record 40 first downs in the game.

Saints Nick Rundown: Vilma Out for Season, Sproles Cleared

The Saints' midweek injury reports are always a merry-go-round this time of year. This time, there's not a pony for everyone. After just one game back, longtime Saints defensive captain Jonathan Vilma was placed on the injured reserve, meaning he is out for the season. Meanwhile, running back Darren Sproles was reportedly cleared to play in the wake of being concussed in New Jersey.

New York Jets Outroar Saints, 26-20

Updated 8:05 p.m.

After last week's win over Buffalo, Sean Payton wasn't jubilant. Instead, the Saints Head Coach outwardly worried that mistakes and problems that made the first half of that game tedious could end in a loss if they weren't fixed. Viewed after the Black and Gold's 26-20 loss to the Jets at Metlife Stadium on Sunday, Payton's words read like he is lowering expectations for the eventual downfall. Penalties, turnovers and other mistakes were a few reasons the Saints couldn't pull out a win on the road.

Saints-Jets Preview: Rob v. Rex, Vilma Could Return

The New Orleans Saints will be on the road in New York on Sunday, but a few familiar faces will be back in the fold. The Black and Gold will look to move to 7-1 as they wrap up an early-season slate of games against AFC East teams by take on the New York Jets (4-4) at Metlife Stadium (Noon, FOX).

Saints' Ring of Honor Announces First Inductees

The New Orleans Saints are honoring some of their all-time greats in a new Ring of Honor that will pay tribute to the players, coaches and execs that stand out in Black and Gold history. On Friday, the team announced the members of the inaugural class. Rickey Jackson, Willie Roaf and none other than Archie Manning will be the first to carry the Fleur de Lis.

Saints Recap: Black n' Gold Beat Buffalo Bills 35-17

The New Orleans Saints' offense was a little slow getting over the Bye Week Blues, but Breesus and his followers rebounded over the final 35 minutes of the game to dominate the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Sparked by a renewed connection with his wide receivers, Brees tossed five touchdown passes to jumpstart the Black and Gold toward a 35-17 victory at home in the Superdome.
