NFC Playoff Picture: Where do the Saints stand after Week 10?

By John Sigler | Saints Wire

Week 10 delivered plenty of surprises to the NFL, painting the playoff picture in sweeping, sometimes-erratic strokes. It brought big changes for some Super Bowl contenders and a painful reality check for other playoff hopefuls, the New Orleans Saints among them. The Saints may have fallen flat against the Atlanta Falcons, but they weren’t the only favorite to get upset this week. Let’s run through the games that impacted this week’s standings.

Green Bay Packers 24, Carolina Panthers 16

What a game for the Packers, who were able to run often and effectively on what’s been a mostly-strong Panthers defense. Their two-headed attack of Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams combined for 156 rushing yards in a game that saw snow pile up as the afternoon drew on. Green Bay’s defense showed up with several sacks and frequently pressured newly-minted starting Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen, who put up a fight but wasn’t able to clinch a tough win on the road. Christian McCaffrey was effective as ever but ultimately came up short at the goal-line on the game’s final play.

Standing memory that will last a lifetime.

GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) - Veteran’s Day is observed nationally to honor those that have served and currently serve in the US Armed Forces.

Staff Sergeant Corey Crockett has been serving with the Air Force in Kuwait for the last four months. He was brought home as a surprise to his family as part of the New Orleans Saints’ Last Fan Standing.

“Man, my heart was beating a thousand beats per minute," said Crockett. “I was nervous. I was scared, but more than all I was just excited. I was ready to run into my girl’s and wife’s arms and greet them and love on them."

Crockett describes the moment he saw his family.

Bucs underdogs at home in Week 11 for the first time all season

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a big Week 10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Not only did it stop Tampa Bay’s four-game losing-streak, but it was also the team’s first game at Raymond James Stadium since Week 3.

A grueling 1-4 road stretch had the team at 2-6 before Sunday’s big win. But, if the Bucs want to continue to climb back to .500, they’ll have to take down Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints next Sunday.

New Orleans is coming off a stunning 26-9 home loss in Week 10 to the Atlanta Falcons, and the risk of falling further behind in the NFC playoff picture will have them playing in desperation mode against the Bucs.

All goals still attainable for the New Orleans Saints

The 6-game winning streak buys you a mulligan or two. All goals are still attainable.

By Doug Mouton / WWL-TV Sports Director

NEW ORLEANS — We're not going to harp on the negatives from Sunday's loss to the Falcons, but our four takeaways start with a few stats that tell the tale...

4. The battle in the trenches

This game was lost up front, in the trenches. The Falcons rushed for 91 more yards than the Saints. From peewee ball through the NFL, if you dominate that number, you usually win.

Sean Payton said afterwards that was a factor, but so was third down conversions. The Falcons hit on 40 percent of their conversion. The Saints were just 3-12, or 25 percent.

Last season, the Saints were fifth in the NFL at 47 percent. The number against the Falcons, though, would be the worst in the NFL right now.

Drew Brees also took a beating: Six sacks and 11 quarterback hits for the Falcons. On the Saints’ ends, those numbers were one and five on Matt Ryan.

Again, beaten up front. So the real question is: Was it a blip, or is there cause for concern. I think it’s some of each.

Whether Drew Brees or Teddy Bridgewater is throwing him the ball, Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is doing special things this season.

Thomas caught a season-high 13 catches on Sunday and now has 86 catches through nine games. That puts him on pace for 153 catches over 16 games.

If he does it, Thomas would have the first 150-catch season in NFL history. The current record is 143, set by Marvin Harrison in 2002.

Last weekend, Sean Payton dialed up a trick play more audacious than “Ambush,” the onside kick that opened the second half of the Saints’ Super Bowl victory 10 years ago.

After a successful 6-game winning streak, the New Orleans Saints have reason to be concerned after Week 10. Here’s how it all went down:

Sunday afternoon, the second place Carolina Panthers (5-3) played the Green Bay Packers (7-2) in Green Bay.

Louisiana Supreme Court won't revive 'NOLA no-call' lawsuit in Saints-Rams NFC Championship

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana's Supreme Court has refused to revive a New Orleans Saints fan's lawsuit against the NFL over officials' failure to call a penalty at a crucial point in a January playoff game.

The court denied a motion to rehear the case without comment Tuesday.

Attorney Antonio LeMon filed the lawsuit after officials failed to flag a Los Angeles Rams player for obvious pass interference and an illegal helmet-to-helmet hit. The no-call helped the Rams...

The Saints’ next home game against the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 24 will now air on CBS instead of FOX, the NFL announced late Tuesday. Kickoff time for the game remains at noon.

The game is one of four to change networks or kickoff times in Week 12. The biggest move was the Green Bay Packers-San Francisco 49ers game to Sunday Night Football, the first primetime flex of the season.

The originally scheduled Sunday night game, Seattle at Philadelphia, was moved to a...

Saints run defense turned in uncharacteristically poor showing in loss to Atlanta

Why bother coming up with an elegant way to describe the New Orleans Saints struggles against the Falcons rush offense when coach Sean Payton put such a nice, blunt bow on it.

“We weren’t real sharp, and we got what we deserved,” Payton said.

Two things were true entering Sunday’s Week 10 contest between the rivals: The Saints ranked as one of the NFL’s stingiest rush defenses, while Atlanta checked in as one of the NFL’s most anemic rush offenses. Neither of those...

Is Robert Saleh getting too much in-game exposure?

49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh has become a star of sorts this season, thanks to his enthusiastic in-game reactions to great plays from his much-improved group of players. As Peter King pointed out on Tuesday’s PFT Live, Saleh perhaps has become too much of a star.

King takes issue with the extent to which the cameras continue to find Saleh this season, giving him excessive public credit for a team that ultimately is led by coach Kyle Shanahan and G.M...
