Drew Brees' sharp second half propels Saints comeback vs. Packers Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 09:12 PM


By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a rough start on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

On the opening drive, the Saints drove to the Green Bay 20, but Brees threw an interception in the end zone looking for Brandon Coleman. On the next possession, the Saints made it to the Green Bay 36, and Brees threw another pick, this time looking for a well-covered Michael Thomas along the sideline.

Brees described the turnovers as poor throws. He thought he had good matchups, but didn't execute the plays.

"Disappointing start, and yet we hung tough and knew that we were going to have our opportunities," Brees said.

Brees and the offense took advantage of chances later in the game as the Saints beat the Packers, 26-17, at Lambeau Field...

Sean Payton can nitpick, but there's no denying Saints' recent dominance Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 09:10 PM


By Jeff Duncan | NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune


GREEN BAY, Wis. - Sean Payton is going to hate this column.

The New Orleans Saints head coach is doing everything he can to curb the burgeoning enthusiasm surrounding his surging football team.

But no matter how much he poor mouths his team off the field, the Saints are countering his efforts with their dominant play on it.

Everyone can see it. The Saints are rolling.

They won their fourth consecutive game here on Sunday and they did so in subtly authoritative fashion.

They spotted the Packers an early lead with some shoddy tackling and a pair of uncharacteristic interceptions by Drew Brees and still were good enough to rally and win going away...

Hundley, Packers can't get passing game going Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 09:07 PM


By Greg Bates | Special to The Advocate

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Brett Hundley had a full week to prepare for his first career NFL start, but the Green Bay Packers quarterback wasn’t given much of an opportunity to shine.
The third-year pro, who stepped in last week after Aaron Rodgers broke his right collarbone against the Minnesota Vikings, had a rough game. He finished 12 for 25 for 87 passing yards and one interception. His quarterback rating was a measly 39.9.

“The coaches did a great job of preparing us for this game, and my biggest thing is I didn’t play as well as I wanted to,” said Hundley, who threw for 187 yards in last week’s loss. “I don’t care if I throw for 10 yards or 500, if we don’t win the game it doesn’t matter. So, I obviously didn’t play good enough today.”

The top three Packers receivers — Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb — combined for just five catches for 40 yards and no touchdowns. The trio came into the game with 74 catches and 12 touchdowns in the first six games...

How the Saints made adjustments to shut down Green Bay's running game in the second half Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:12 PM


By Nick Underhill


GREEN BAY, Wis. – A.J. Klein expects there to be some harsh moments during this week's film review.

The Saints linebacker was on the field during Sunday’s 26-17 win over the Green Bay Packers. He saw Packers running back Alex Jones take off for a 46-yard touchdown on the opening series and all of the other 51 yards the back gained on nine carries during the first half.

“On this tape, when we turn it on, it’s going to be ugly at times,” Klein said. “We have a lot to clean up. We can’t give up that many yards rushing.”

It didn’t matter that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t on the field. Brett Hundley’s 7-of-15 passing for 56 yards during the first half mostly just meant there were 15 plays when the Packers didn’t run the ball. The approach was good enough for Green Bay to build a 14-7 first-half lead, thanks, in part, to some errant passing by Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who threw a pair of interceptions...

New Orleans bounces back to beat Green Bay and emerge from schedule's toughest stretch at top of NFC South Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:06 PM


By Joel A. Erickson

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The same resiliency that brought the New Orleans Saints back in the second half of Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers has now carried the Saints back to the top of the NFC South after an abysmal start.

Facing a Packers team that appeared to be somewhat toothless after the loss of Aaron Rodgers, the Saints spent the first half making the kinds of mistakes that could have led to an upset at Lambeau Field.

Then the Saints bounced back and bounced Green Bay 26-17 with the kind of dominant half that has marked their four-game win streak, a streak that has lifted them into at least a share of the NFC South lead, pending Atlanta's Super Bowl rematch against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

"This goes to recruiting," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. "You bring in the type of guys that are smart, tough, character guys that can see through the trees in the forest sometimes and understand the long-term vision and understand there will be bumps in the road."...

Saints overcome tough field conditions at Lambeau Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:02 PM


Written by: Sean Fazende, Sports Reporter

(WVUE) - From the fast turf and climate controlled confines of the Superdome last week to the slick grass and wind and rain of Lambeau Field this week, the contrast in conditions contributed to the contrast in style of play for the Saints on Sunday.

"Footing, obviously, slick conditions and I think just the field itself," Drew Brees explained. "If you don't have your feet under you're probably going to slip so you have to be conscious of that."

Fortunately the Saints were. Despite a few slips early on, the Saints overall held a pretty good grip on the grass concerns thanks to some different footwear. Most players wore the longer, screw-in cleats...

Saints' Ted Ginn makes up for special teams errors with big plays on offense Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 06:58 PM


By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As the son of a longtime football coach, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn has heard all kinds of lessons that apply to various situations.

In Sunday's 26-17 win over the Green Bay Packers, Ginn fell back on some advice from his father, Ted Ginn Sr., that helped him finish as the Saints' standout offensive player of the game despite two early errors on special teams.

"When one thing ain't going right, don't let the other one slip," Ginn said after the game. "So, I just tried to go out, hey, I can get beat up for the punt return, but as far as offense, I came through for my team."

Ginn finished the game with seven catches for 141 yards, the second highest yardage total in his 11-year career spanning 157 games. In 2008, Ginn had 175 yards in a game for the Miami Dolphins...

Saints make second-half adjustment to shut down Packers' running game Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 06:57 PM


By Herbie Teope, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers rookie running back Aaron Jones had his way with the New Orleans Saints defense in the first half Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Jones gouged the Saints for 97 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries through the first two quarters, doing most of his damage up the gut of the defense.

As a team in the first half, the Packers rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries en route to a 14-7 halftime lead.

The Saints defense, which entered the game ranked 11th in the league against the run, knew it couldn't allow Jones to run free the rest of the game.

And the unit left the locker room for the second half on a simple mission: to shut down the Packers running game...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The New Orleans Saints extended a winning streak to four games Sunday after defeating the Packers 26-17 at Lambeau Field.

Now at 4-2 after starting 0-2, the Saints also moved into first place in the NFC South.

"I didn't know that," defensive tackle Tyeler Davison said. "The reaction is to keep grinding, keep going.

"It's still early in the season. We're only six games in and we have 10 more, so we just need to not be complacent, not be satisfied where we are right now because there's still a lot of season to go."

Coach Sean Payton, who admitted he is proud of the Saints' resiliency, also emphasized the importance of not getting too far ahead...

Saints Show Off Revived Run Game in Week 7 Win Against the Packers Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 06:50 PM


By Michael Beller

Three thoughts on the Saints 26–17 win over the Packers.

1. The Saints do, in fact, have a run game. New Orleans lost their first two games of the season, running for just 60 and 81 yards in those contests. But since then, the team has won four straight, picking up at least 149 yards on the ground in three of them. The rushing attack took off for the Saints after they sent Adrian Peterson to Arizona. Mark Ingram ran for 105 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in the win over the Packers, his second straight game breaking the century mark. Alvin Kamara, meanwhile, has ripped off chunk plays, totaling 132 yards on the ground on 19 totes. All told, since streamlining the backfield, the Saints primary two backs have rushed for 351 yards and three touchdowns on 66 carries, and caught 17 passes for 103 yards.

Drew Brees is still doing his thing in his 17th season, but the Saints, and every team for that matter, are better when they’re getting sustained production from their run game. With Ingram back in command of the backfield and Kamara providing an explosive element, they once again have it.

2. Game one of the Brett Hundley era did not go as hoped. All week, Mike McCarthy and everyone of note on the Packers stressed how much confidence they had in Hundley to run the offense, building up the now-starting quarterback as much as possible. To be fair, they couldn’t really say anything else, no matter if it was coach-speak, if they genuinely believed it or if it was some combination of the two...

Grading the Saints: Defense holds tight while offense gets in gear Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 04:55 PM


By Larry Holder

Quarterback

Drew Brees double-clutched on the interception in the end zone. He knew the throw would be tricky, and made it any way. Then Brees gambled vs. perfect coverage the next drive. Davon House picked that ball off, too. Brees rebounded in the second half and looked far more comfortable. And he clinched the win by going Air Brees for a 1-yard TD.
Grade: B-minus

Running Back
The combination of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara continued to be stellar. Both running backs brought a consistent, tough element in the rushing attack. Kamara also presented a challenge for Green Bay in the passing game. They’re making an argument for the best 1-2 combo in the league.
Grade: A

Wide receiver
“The Ted Ginn Experience” put on quite the show. Ginn brought some excitement with a few more explosive plays. Michael Thomas’ stats (seven catches, 82 yards) might not jump off the page, but he hauled in a couple of tough, gusty catches. Brandon Coleman added a score and a tough reception.
Grade: B...

Saints overcome early issues, beat Packers: Final score, stats and analysis Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 04:51 PM

NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The New Orleans Saints knew Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers wouldn't be easy just because star Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't playing.

As it turned out, this was the toughest of the Saints' past four games, and despite trailing for much of it, New Orleans managed to extend its winning streak to four games with a 26-17 win over the Packers at Lambeau Field.

With the victory, the Saints (4-2) currently stand alone in first place in the NFC South, though the Atlanta Falcons will have a chance to join them at 4-2 on Sunday night.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees overcame throwing interceptions on the first two possessions to have a solid overall performance, finishing 27 of 38 for 331 yards with one touchdown and an 84.4 passer rating. Brees also leaped and lunged the ball forward for a 1-yard touchdown with 4:57 remaining that finally provided the Saints with a somewhat comfortable two-possession lead...

Four in a row: Saints overcome early struggles to top Packers 26-17 Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 04:43 PM


Advocate Staff Report

After trailing the entire first half, the Saints defense stepped up in the second half and the offense responded in kind for New Orleans' fourth victory in a row, a 26-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Two Saints early turnovers and a seven penalties kept the Packers in striking distance for much of the game, but the defense came alive in the second half, holding the Packers to only a fourth-quarter field goal.
Meanwhile, the offense piled up 19 second-half points.

Overall, the Saints outgained the Packers 485 yards to 260 yards.

It was Saints' first four-game winning streak since the start of the 2013 season and it came at always-tough Lambeau Field. The Saints are now 2-4 in the storied stadium...

The New Orlean Saints (3-2), led by quarterback Drew Brees, met the Green Bay Packers (4-2), who will be without injured starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in an NFL Week 7 NFC matchup on Sunday, October 22, 2017 (10/22/17) at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Drew Brees threw for a touchdown and ran for another, Mark Ingram rushed for a score and the New Orleans Saints overcame several mistakes to beat the Green Bay Packers 26-17 on Sunday.

Will Lutz kicked two second-half field goals, including a 44-yarder to put New Orleans up for good 19-17 with 10:26 left in the game. Brees' 1-yard sneak gave the Saints a two-score lead with 4:55 left.
The sloppy Saints were fortunate to get their fourth straight victory. The Packers lost their first game with Brett Hundley starting at quarterback for injured star Aaron Rodgers...

Charean Williams

Don’t look now, but the Saints have won four consecutive games. Three of those came on the road. All were quality wins, coming against the Panthers, Dolphins, Lions and now Packers.


AP


New Orleans overcame two first-half interceptions throw by Drew Brees and 14-7 halftime deficit against Green Bay, dominating the second half. The Saints had 260 yards in the second half; the Packers gained 260 yards for the game

It marked Brees’ seventh appearance against the Packers in his career, and he now has thrown for 300 yards in every one. The only thing he didn’t do Sunday that he had done in the other six was throw two touchdown passes.

Instead, he threw one and ran for one...

Kamara’s Early Impact and Much More

By Mike Detillier

Coming out of every NFL draft folks ask about immediate impact players for their respective teams. Every once in a while you get a signature player as a rookie as a pass rusher or defensive back, but most of those immediate first year impact guys are on offense at halfback or wide receiver.

Last season the San Diego Chargers got a big impact hit on defense with the selection of defensive end Joey Bosa and in 2015 the Kansas City Chiefs hit early gold in cornerback Marcus Peters, but in 2016 look at the impact wide receiver Michael Thomas made with the New Orleans Saints and the huge impact halfback Ezekiel Elliott had with the Dallas Cowboys.

Early contributions of wide receivers Odell Beckham, Jr., DeAndre Hopkins, Amari Cooper, Mike Evans and Jarvis Landry made them Year 1 impact players in the NFL.

While cornerback Marshon Lattimore and free safety Marcus Williams are talented players to add to the Saints defensive squad and it is so needed, I believe the Year 1 impact performer will be Tennessee halfback Alvin Kamara.

He fits the role that Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles played so well with the Black and Gold and his receiving skills will eat up some of the catches wide receiver Brandin Cooks had on the offensive side of the ball.

With Cooks now in New England, the combination of Kamara and the addition of veteran wideout Ted Ginn, Jr. should fill in that huge opening of catches out on the field.

As a rookie Reggie Bush split time with Deuce McAllister at the halfback spot, but the former USC Heisman Trophy winner was the ideal fit in Sean Payton’s offense as the back in the slot as a receiver, the receiver catching the swing pass, the edge runner and punt returner.

While McAllister was still considered the lead-dog runner Bush touched the ball 271 times in 2006 as a runner, receiver and return man and contributed 1,523 yards of all-purpose yards.

Sproles was an established performer when he came to the Saints after six seasons with the San Diego Chargers, but in his first season with New Orleans in 2011 he touched the ball 242 times for 2,696 yards as a runner, receiver, punt returner and kickoff return man which set a new NFL all-purpose yardage mark.

One AFC general manager told me his team tried to trade up into the 3rd round to draft the speedy Volunteer halfback.

“We had to go defense in Round #2 to fill a huge need spot, but when Alvin fell into Round #3 we started making calls,” the AFC general manager said. “We knew other teams were too and we had found a trade partner, but the Saints got him first. We thought he could be a “Jamaal Charles-Kansas City Chiefs” type edge back and receiver. Before the knee injuries settled in with Jamaal he was a really good back and we were willing to part with multiple picks to get Kamara. He’s a great fit for the Saints. It is part of the business you miss out on a player that really can boost an offense quickly in the league and Kamara could have done that with us and he will with New Orleans.”

With Mark Ingram still the heavy-duty rushing back and him being backed up by 32-year old and future NFL Hall of Fame halfback Adrian Peterson, the speedy Kamara may not get 271 or 242 touches in the 2017 season, but you can bet the bank Sean Payton has a specific and extensive role for him in the Saints...
