Saints Look to Cash Bucs, Playoff Spot in Regular Season Finale
For the second straight week, the New Orleans Saints have an opportunity to seal their playoff fate with a win over a division rival. In a regular season finale with plenty at stake, the Saints rendezvous once again with the Tampa Bay Bucs in the Dome (3:25 p.m., FOX).
Losing Hartley: Saints Cut Kicker, Demote LT Charles Brown
Updated 12/18 10 a.m.
Typically, news about Saints comings and goings is for the offseason. But in the wake of Sunday's 27-16 defeat at the claws of the otherwise-sheepish St. Louis Rams, Coach Sean Payton decided a drastic, late-season move was necessary. The Saints cut place kicker Garrett Hartley Tuesday, ending the Black and Gold run of one of the heroes of the 2009-10 Super Bowl squad.
Saints Lock Horns with Charging Rams
With last week's triumph over Carolina, the New Orleans Saints appear to be in prime position for a playoff run that starts at home. But getting to the end of any quest always requires facing down old tormentors. The Saints are back on the road to face one such nemesis on Sunday, as they take on the St. Louis Rams in the Edward Jones Dome. (3:25 p.m., FOX).
Saints, Brees Lock in to Cage Panthers, 31-13
Round one goes to the Black and Gold guys. For at least the next couple of weeks, the New Orleans Saints gained the upper hand in the NFC South race with a 31-13 throttling of the Carolina Panthers. A week after Seattle made them look like mere mortals, a night game in the Superdome was just the balm the Saints' needed to rise back into exalted territory.
Stakes Raised for Saints Against Riverboat Ron, Panthers
The New Orleans Saints have emerged from what many probably circled as their toughest four-game stretch of the season with a 3-1 record. If they put up the same record over the last four games of the year, it'll go a long way toward winning the division, and heading to a playoff game under the Dome's climate-controlled roof. Still, for reasons that are based in both hype and reality, Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers (7:30 p.m., NBC) has the feel of a must-win for the Black and Gold.
Saints Call on WhoDats to Set Crowd Noise Record
Seattle Seahawks fans broke the record for loudest outdoor crowd in Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints, but there's one barrier that the CenturyLink crowd can't touch. When Carolina rolls into the Superdome on Sunday, the Saints will have a Guinness rep on hand to see if WhoDats can break the World Record for Loudest Crowd Roar at an Indoor Sports Stadium.
Seahawks Soar Over Saints, 34-7
Move along, now. The New Orleans Saints were thoroughly dismantled by the Seattle Seahawks Monday night, dropping the game 34-7. Behind big plays engineered by second-year QB Russell Wilson, Seattle jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. Drew Brees and the Saints offense was uncharacteristically without answers, making for a long night in front of 68,387 fans at CenturyLink Field -- all of whom seemed to be screaming at the top of their lungs continuously for the entire game.
Saints-Seahawks Preview: Battle of Might on Monday Night
The Monday after Thanksgiving always hits hard, but the New Orleans Saints (9-2) have an especially tough wake up call at the end of their extended break. The Black and Gold are set to battle in Seattle on Monday Night Football (7:30 p.m., ESPN) at a loud, cold and soggy Century Link Field that was the scene of their undoing a mere three years ago. If that's not enough, it should probably also be noted that the Seahawks (10-1) are a very good football squad.
Saints' Jordan Fined for Hit on Falcons QB
The New Orleans Saints are no strangers to the NFL player safety debate, especially after a hit by the San Francisco 49ers' Ahamd Brooks became the armchair quarterbacks' talking point last week. This week, it's the Black and Gold who are facing the fines, as ESPN reports defensive lineman Cameron Jordan will have to cough up $10,000 for his hit on Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
