After a quick bump in the road, the New Orleans Saints got back on track last week with a 34-17 rout of the Tampa Bay Bucs as 5-point road favorites.

This week, Drew Brees and company could close as 10-point favorites or higher at home against the suddenly reeling Carolina Panthers (CBS, noon). Carolina has dropped three of its last four games, including blowouts by scores of 51-13 at San Francisco, and 29-3 last week vs. Atlanta.

Though the Saints have edges over most teams in a lot of areas, perhaps the most important is their efficient offense. Last week’s win/cover didn’t feature impressive yardage stats. In fact, Tampa Bay won total yardage 334-328 and yards-per-play 5.5 to 5.1. Why the rout? ...

Michael Thomas trails only Amari Cooper in Pro Bowl voting

The 2020 Pro Bowl is months away, giving New Orleans Saints fans an opportunity to vote their favorite players into this year’s exhibition game. Fans can vote by following this link; we put together a list of all of the Saints players on this year’s ballot in this post.

Voting has been open for over a week, but no Saints players yet lead their category in votes earned, which is disappointing. It doesn’t help that the Pro Bowl’s position breakdowns are outdated, pitting fan-favorite Saints such as linebacker Demario Davis against pass rushers like Green Bay Packers star Preston Smith.

According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, one Saints player is within striking range of first place: wide receiver Michael Thomas, who some have suggested deserves recognition as the league’s Most Valuable Player. But even Thomas, the NFL’s leader in both receptions (94) and receiving yards (1,141), trails behind someone else: Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper. ...

The New Orleans Saints churned their practice squad on Wednesday by waiving safety Trae Elston and signing rookie linebacker Andrew Dowell. Dowell first entered the NFL by signing with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent; before that, he started three years for the Michigan State Spartans at outside linebacker, recording 260 total tackles (15 for loss of yards). Amie Just of Nola.com first reported Dowell’s signing.

This followed a group workout for free agent linebackers on Tuesday. New Orleans reportedly tried out Dowell, Devante Bond, Alvin Jones, and Curtis Akins, who we wrote about here. Dowell must have shown the Saints what they wanted to see when compared against his peers, and ended up winning a spot on their practice squad. He will wear No. 50, per the roster listed on the Saints team website. ...

Kyle Allen won’t sneak up on Saints this year

  • News source: Darin Gantt
  • Replies: 0
The legend of Kyle Allen began last year in New Orleans, when he started a throwaway game for the Panthers, and beat a largely disinterested Saints team that had already secured a playoff berth and was resting starters.

But the real surprise was when the Panthers quarterback continued that hot streak into this season, winning his first four starts in relief of Cam Newton.

He’s since come back to Earth, and in what could be worse news for him, he earned the Saints’...

In the 12 weeks that have passed since the 2019 NFL season started, New Orleans Saints practice squad wide receiver Emmanuel Butler has moved from the training camp limelight and into the shadows.

But he's still here.

And he's still working.

"Things are going really well," Butler said on Wednesday. "I'm very thankful for this opportunity to still be here, to be able to learn behind such great guys — guys who are so knowledgeable. I'm trying to take everything in...

The New Orleans Saints have faced off against two out of the three other NFC South opponents so far this season, and have already wrapped up the series against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But now the Saints get their first look at the Carolina Panthers (5-5).

Since the Panthers began as a franchise in 1995, the Panthers lead the series at 25-24. The Panthers won the last meeting, 2018's regular season finale, where many of the Saints starters were sidelined after...

Saints 'well aware' of what Panthers' Kyle Allen did against them last season

Do you remember Carolina Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen’s first NFL start? The New Orleans Saints certainly haven’t forgotten.

“He played his a-- off against us, that’s what I remember,” Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said. “They, for lack of a better word, embarrassed us. And yeah, that’s not something we forget.”

It was Week 17 last season, and it was a bit of a weird week. The Saints had already wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and rested many of...

The 49ers have an imposing stretch of schedule in front of them the next three weeks.

They’re facing the Packers, the Ravens and the Saints in a three-game run that could make some history. If the Ravens and Saints keep their winning percentages above 80 percent, it will mark the first time a team has faced three teams with winning percentages that high this late in the season.

Many see this as a test of the 49ers’ strength, but fullback Kyle Juszczyk sees things a...

The New Orleans Saints face their division rival in the Carolina Panthers, with a chance to move ever so closer to the NFC South title. Carolina had stood within striking distance to the Saints for the better part of the season until recently, but now they find themselves in danger of falling out of not only the division race, but the playoff race as well. Despite their recent struggles, Carolina remains a dangerous foe, especially with their backs against the wall...
