Jacksonville, Fla. – Whatever it takes to win, is what the New Orleans Saints are willing to do. They proved as much again on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field, with a 13-6 victory over Jacksonville.

The Saints (5-1) are in enough of a groove that they’ve won four straight without Drew Brees, and remain atop the NFC South Division standings simply because they won’t cede the high ground.

But, too, they’ve got enough quality players and performances to ensure, so far, that no one has been able to push them off the hill. ...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Teddy Bridgewater found Jared Cook for a 4-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and the New Orleans Saints held on to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-6 on Sunday and improve to 4-0 without injured starter Drew Brees.

Coming off a 300-yard, four-touchdown performance against Tampa Bay, Bridgewater was less effective against the Jaguars (2-4). But he did enough for New Orleans’ defense, which turned Minshew Mania into Minshew Mayhem.

Minshew was sacked twice, hurried often and threw his first interception as a starter. The rookie sensation completed 14 of 29 passes for 163 yards and was held without a touchdown for the first time this season. His worst outing came on the same day the team, in conjunction with the NFL, handed out 30,000 “Minshew mustaches” as fans entered the gates. ...

The New Orleans Saints improved their record to 5-1 on the season with a 13-6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road. The Saints, who won their fourth straight without injured quarterback Drew Brees, won with a strong defensive effort and an offense that made just enough plays to keep the host Jaguars at bay. The Saints offense struggled at times against a Jacksonville defense that played well. Running back Alvin Kamara was noticeably hobbled with ankle/knee...

Teddy Bridgewater has more than held his own. Albeit, the gritty team wins against Seattle and Dallas had more to do with the Saints’ defense and special teams performances than Bridgewater’s, but the win against Tampa Bay had Bridgewater’s fingerprints all over it.

Instead of simply “game-managing” like he had his first two starts, #5 finally took control of the offense, limited penalties, and made quicker and more decisive throws only where his receivers could...

The usage for New Orleans Saints running back Latavius Murray went up this week by nearly 10 percent, according to the Week 6 snap counts.

In the Saints' 12-6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Murray took the field for 28 of the Saints' 66 plays, or 42 percent. His highest outing before the Jacksonville game was Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Rams, where he was in on 35 percent of the plays.

Murray's statistics reflected his increased usage. His 79 yards...

3 Ups and 1 Down from yesterday’s win over the Jaguars

An ugly win is still a win, right?

It was still a roller coast of a game, with plenty of “Ups” and “Downs” along the way, though. Here are a few that stood out:

Down: Teddy Bridgewater

Please understand that I’m by no means a “Teddy Bridgewater Hater” or anything of the sort. I think Bridgewater will be a great NFL quarterback, whether for the New Orleans Saints or elsewhere in 2020. That being said, I’m not a blind homer either. I’m simply willing to point out...

The Saints improved to 5-1 with a 13-6 win over the Jaguars that showed the team’s ability to grind out a win behind a strong defensive performance.

New Orleans has won four games in a row and they haven’t always followed the same script. They gave up 514 yards in a 33-27 win over the Seahawks, didn’t score a touchdown the next week while beating the Cowboys and then outlasted the Buccaneers in a 34-27 win in Week Five. According to the team, the common thread is...

Good morning Y’all

As always, for our novice readers or non-New Orleanians, welcome!

Let’s start with some definitions:

Beignets (English: /bɛnˈjeɪ/; French: [bɛɲɛ], ben-YAY literally bump) are distinctly New Orleans, a delicacy intimately connected to the city’s rich French heritage. Best enjoyed heavily powdered with sugar.

Café au lait (/ˌkæfeɪ oʊ ˈleɪ, kæˌfeɪ, kə-/; French: [kafe olɛ]; French for “coffee with milk”) is a delicious New Orleans way to start...

The Jaguars didn’t have a prayer against the Saints on Sunday.

Pope Francis accidentally tweeted support for the Saints only hours before they took the field in Jacksonville.

“Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints,” Pope Francis tweeted. “They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession.”

The hashtag inadvertently added the Fleur de Lis to the tweet.

The Saints retweeted Pope Francis after their 13-6 victory, respoinding, “Couldn’t lose...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Thomas Morstead felt good for the first time in two weeks.

The New Orleans Saints punter had been battling a "GI bug" and a "respiratory rut" recently, with a light fever as of late. But during Sunday's Week 6 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Morstead felt like himself.

"I felt kind of young today," Morstead, 33, said. "So that was nice."

Feeling youthful helped Morstead dominate in the punting game. Five of Morstead's six punts landed...

On Sunday, Pope Francis tweeted out his gratitude to God for a group of newly canonized Saints. What he didn't realize is that when he tweeted "#Saints," Twitter's algorithm automatically added a fleur-de-lis to his tweet.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Just try to keep Cam Jordan pinned down.

It feels like it must be just as hard in a postgame locker room as it is for offensive tackles on the field. Wherever he is, Jordan is all over the map, but wherever he is, he is also in control. Try to ask him about the game and be satisfied instead with mustache commentary. Try to defend his speed off the edge and he’ll beat you with strength. Try leading him one direction — “Does it ever get old…” —...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Teddy Bridgewater apologized to Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen following Sunday's game.

Not that the Saints' backup quarterback really needed to.

Nobody in the Saints' close-knit locker room cares about how they win or who gets the credit.

They only care about the end result, which for the fourth straight week without Drew Brees was another Saints victory.

Simply put, the Saints just keep scrapping and finding ways to win...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — It wasn’t a big statistical game for New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook, but three of the game’s most crucial plays ended with the ball in his hands.

In the first quarter, Cook converted a third and 13 by beating his man to the sideline on a deep out for a 13-yard catch, putting the Saints in position for Wil Lutz to give the team a 3-0 lead with a 47-yard field goal a few plays later.
