It seemed like the New Orleans Saints were in the middle of a scary situation when rookie standout Marquez Callaway was immediately ruled out of their recent game with the Denver Broncos after suffering a knee injury, but NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that the first-year wideout received some good news.

Pelissero reports that Callaway was diagnosed with a “minor knee sprain” which could sideline him, though it’s a far cry from a feared season-ending injury. Depending on the exact issue and damage, he could miss New Orleans’ next game or several contests remaining on their schedule. At this early stage, we just don’t know. So keep an eye out for updates on the Saints injury report, which will be released on Wednesday and updated throughout the week before their Sunday rematch with the Atlanta Falcons. ...

The Saints can earn a fourth straight trip to the playoffs with a win this Sunday in Atlanta.

With a record of 9-2, New Orleans currently sits at the top of the NFC, and when it comes to clinching those all-important playoff berths, the important thing is outpacing those who might steal your spot.

And while the Black and Gold might still be two weeks away from winning their fourth straight NFC South crown – the Saints win the division with either two more wins, two more Tampa Bay losses, or a combination of one of each, and they can’t get there this week with the Buccaneers enjoying their bye week – they can at least lock down a wild-card berth by beating the Falcons this weekend. Here’s why…

At 9-2, the Saints can earn their 10th win of the season by beating the Falcons. At that point, the absolute worst the Saints could finish would be 10-6. ...

Falcons fans (most of them, anyway) are feeling good following Atlanta's dominant win over the Raiders. The team is 4-2 since Raheem Morris took over on Oct. 12, but a huge test against the Saints is looming. Only nine days ago, New Orleans thumped the Falcons 24-9. It's a critical test not only for the Falcons players, but for Morris and this coaching staff, too. In the meantime, fans have plenty of questions and comments about where the team is at and what the future may hold, so let's get to some of those now. Just remember that all opinions here are mine unless noted otherwise.

And we're off.

Do the Falcons have the staff, or could they hire a staff to groom a QB such as Sam Darnold if the Falcons made a trade for the QB?

Matt: Sam Darnold? Well, the Falcons certainly have a staff that's capable of working with a quarterback like Darnold, but the Jets quarterback is in the third year of his fully guaranteed four-year contract (with a fifth-year option available). Let's forget Darnold and the Jets situation here for a minute. The Falcons have a quarterback in Matt Ryan, and it's not a position of weakness or need right now. This team has greater needs and bigger issues at other positions. The Falcons are also in the midst of searching for a new general manager, a person who will come in with a fresh vision and build this team – specifically, its roster – accordingly. ...

Saints Film Room: Breakdown of Taysom’s shaky passing performance in Week 12

  • News source: Andrew_Bell
  • Replies: 0
New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill’s performance against the Denver Broncos in Week 12 has many layers to it.

On the surface, I know it didn’t didn’t look pretty. A 9/16 for 78 yards and 1 INT day through the air is hard to be aesthetically pleasing. But we at least got some confirmation after the game from head coach Sean Payton that Taysom was told be uber-conservative.

While that may somewhat explain the layer of hesitance and missed opportunities against an aggressive defense, it doesn’t explain the risky throws and inaccuracy.

His adjusted completion percentage was 69.2%...

Saints re-watch: How New Orleans dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides vs Denver

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

Being completely honest, I was not looking forward to watching this game a second time.

When watching it in person, there was not a ton of usable material from the New Orleans Saints’ 31-3 win against the Denver Broncos. You might have heard, but the Broncos were playing someone who should have never had to play a game as an NFL quarterback, and that impacted the way the entire game was played.

But, friends and readers, diamonds are sometimes in the rough. Or, put another way, this game was not a complete waste of time.

We’re going to mostly ignore the play of the quarterbacks and the...

Broncos activate Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, Blake Bortles from COVID list

Denver should have at least one quarterback on the field this week.

The Broncos announced Tuesday afternoon they’ve activated Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles from the reserve/COVID-19 list. All three will be eligible to practice tomorrow as Denver begins on-field preparations to face Kansas City on Sunday Night Football in Week 13.

Their activation ostensibly brings this chapter of Denver’s COVID saga to a close after all three were deemed high-risk, close contacts and were unable to play in Sunday’s game against the Saints.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees wanted to be in Denver with his team for Sunday's win over the Broncos, but he instead he watched the unorthodox game on TV.

Brees told Cox Sports TV's Mike Nabors on Sunday that doctors ruled out any potential travel to Denver, especially with his collapsed lung and the elevation change. And that was before the NFL updated its coronavirus guidelines as they pertained to travel parties.

"It was kind of determined even two weeks ago that this would not be a trip I would make, just with the lung and everything," Brees said. "There's risks with the...

Sean Payton should win Coach of The Year

  • News source: Bpavek

The word “great” gets thrown around a lot today, especially in the media. In a world dominated by ‘clicks’, superlatives are used more for their impact than their accuracy. We see it all over the place, not just in sports, but in sports in particular the word ‘great’ gets thrown around a lot. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is known for loving the quote “confidence comes from demonstrated ability”, and Sean’s demonstrated ability has put him in a very small group.

There are five coaches in the NFL today who deserve the word “great” put in front of their name, and Sean Payton is...

CSC’s Week 13 fantasy football waiver wire

Murray has actually received a higher share of touches than Alvin Kamara in the two games in which Taysom Hill has started. His role has increased in the last two games with the Saints going more run heavy and utilizing a true committee backfield with Brees out of the lineup. Murray should continue to see an increased role in the offense and has a chance to turn it into a high scoring output over the next two weeks against two favorable matchups.

Will Fuller V has been suspended for six games for PED usage. This now creates an opportunity for Coutee to be the Texans #2 receiver for the...

The anger of some Broncos fans is misplaced

As we all know, fan is short for fanatic, so irrational reactions are what characterizes sports aficionados across the globe. It is what makes fans awesome sometimes, and other times, not-so-much. Anger, ridiculous displays of elation, booing Santa, filing lawsuits because of a no call. The list of head-scratching behaviors, all linked to their team’s (mis)fortunes is long.

In the case of the 2020 Denver Broncos, it was a whole lot of anger and indignation after their team had to play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon without any of its four quarterback options, due to COVID-19...

10 combined tackles, one pass defended, and one fumble recovery.

That’s what you would see if you were to “box score scout” your way through linebacker Kwon Alexander’s immediate impact over his first three games with the New Orleans Saints. It doesn’t tell the whole story by any means.

Even the advanced statistics undersell exactly how great the former San Francisco 49er has been with the Saints’ defense.

Per Pro Football Focus, Alexander had one hurry as a pass rusher, four missed tackles and five defensive stops. In coverage, He also allowed 5/7 receiving for 36 yards and an 83.0...

The New Orleans Saints won a clunker of a game on Sunday afternoon when the team defeated a quarterback-less Denver Broncos. Some will say “a win is a win” but if you watched the same game we did, you know that’s not the truth. Despite an 8-2 record after a 31-3 victory, we still have fans overreacting on every platform of social media. It’s understandable based on the offense’s performance, but at the end of the day, there is not a ton we can take away from the game.

However, that didn’t stop the entirety of Who Dat Nation from making their thoughts and feelings known. Here are some of...

When Ryan Glasgow returns home to DeKalb, Illinois, he'll still have the household bragging rights.

Glasgow plays defensive tackle for the New Orleans Saints.

Big brother Graham plays guard for the Denver Broncos.

On Sunday, the two went head-to-head on several plays in the Saints' 31-3 victory.

It's the second time the two have played each other in an NFL game. The first time was three seasons ago during Ryan's rookie season with the Cincinnati Bengals when Graham was with the Detroit Lions.

Ryan and the Bengals won that one too, giving him a 2-0 edge in the Glasgow series.
