Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints got off to a great start by striking first on the opening drive, which ate up nearly eight and a half minutes off the clock. Brees was a perfect 6/6 on the drive with four of those completions coming out of the backfield to running back Alvin Kamara. The drive ended with a beautiful catch by tight end Jared Cook in the back corner of the end zone that was tightly contested by safety Tre Boston.

Carolina responded with a score of their own on their first drive of the day but as the theme has been all season long, a nice drive that stalled out, resulting in a Joey Slye 43-yard field goal. However, the field goal try would not have been possible if Teddy Bridgewater hadn't escaped from pressure, rolling to his left and delivered a strike to a diving Curtis Samuel earlier in the drive. Bridgewater took a healthy hit on the throw but put the ball right on the money.

The Saints continued their offensive prowess on the next drive as running back Latavius Murray ripped off a 25-yard run up the middle to get the offense in motion and Brees sliced and diced the Panthers' secondary up the field before calling his own number on a QB sneak to punch in a one yard touchdown. ...

Tom Brady passes Drew Brees for NFL passing touchdowns record

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady's four passing touchdowns on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders leapfrogged him ahead of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for the NFL's career passing touchdowns record.

Brady broke Brees' record with a short pass to Tyler Johnson in the fourth quarter of the Buccaneers' decisive win over the Raiders.

Brees first broke Peyton Manning's old record of 539 last season in the Saints' win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15. Brady tied Manning's mark in Week 16 of last season, ending the 2019 season with 541 career touchdowns, while...

How was Saints' 1st game with fans in Superdome? For these lucky Who Dats, it was 'phenomenal'

Michelle Pohlmann did a split on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome plaza before the Saints-Panthers matchup on Sunday. She was celebrating the first game of the season Who Dats were allowed to attend. “It’s my signature party move,” she said. “I haven’t done it in a while, since there hasn’t been a lot of partying because of the coronavirus.”

Pohlman’s gymnastic feat was all the more remarkable because she’s 8½ months pregnant. “I said, 'I bet I still got it,'” she said. “And I did.” Pohlman said jokingly that the stress of the 27-24 Saints victory was so intense that “I could have gone into...

NFL, Buccaneers will be monitoring pending sexual assault lawsuit against Antonio Brown

Receiver Antonio Brown can join the Buccaneers after Week Eight. That doesn’t put him in the clear, however.

The league reserves the right to impose further discipline against Brown based on evidence developing during the civil sexual assault lawsuit still pending against Brown. The lawsuit, filed in September 2019 by Britney Taylor, is due to go to trial in December.

“No conclusions have been reached in the ongoing investigation of that matter,” an NFL spokesman told PFT by email on Sunday. “We are monitoring developments and we will evaluate any additional information that we receive...

How the 1st sack of the season for Saints DE Marcus Davenport changed the game

  • News source: BY AMIE JUST | Staff writer

The New Orleans Saints only had one sack on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, but it came when it counted the most.

The Panthers were facing a third-and-11 situation from the 39-yard line, trying to win or tie the game with a little over two minutes to play.

With quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the shotgun formation, he looked downfield to pass upon receiving the snap.

But Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport — in his second game back from injury — made a beeline toward Bridgewater as he cut inside inside while safety Malcolm Jenkins battled with the left tackle, leaving...

Teddy Bridgewater's return: From big plays to a seat on Saints' bench; here's how it happened

  • News source: BY ROD WALKER | Staff writer

There were no chants of "Ted-dy, Ted-dy" this time around.

Perhaps there would have been — at least during pregame — if the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was packed like it was this time a year ago when Teddy Bridgewater led the Saints to five consecutive victories when he replaced an injured Drew Brees.

Saints fans and players still appreciate what Bridgewater did last year.

And Bridgewater appreciates his time in New Orleans.

Bridgewater, now the starter for the Carolina Panthers, did his best to treat his return to the city he called home the past two seasons as normal as possible.

Saints show Panthers that there’s no substitute for the real thing

NEW ORLEANS – When Matt Rhule took over as Carolina Panthers head coach in the offseason, he followed the blueprint for success of the New Orleans Saints.

He hired Joe Brady to be his offensive coordinator and signed Teddy Bridgewater as a free agent to run Brady’s offense.

Brady had cut his NFL coaching teeth as an offensive assistant under Saints coach Sean Payton for two seasons before becoming LSU’s passing game coordinator and helping the Tigers win the CFP championship last season.

Bridgewater and Brady crossed paths in New Orleans in 2018, the first of Bridgewater’s two seasons...

The Saints navigated a crisis again, and it was evident how they'd do it from the start

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

If success in the NFL is about how teams go about solving unexpected problems, then New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton’s method is to plug away at something until the full array of solutions are available, even if that means bypassing some sleep.

The Saints were faced with one of those problems that brings about sleepless nights this week. They likely had a solid indication they’d be without Michael Thomas again, but it wasn’t until after Thursday’s practice when they found out their other top receiver, Emmanuel Sanders, tested positive for the coronavirus.

In addition to the hole in...

Saints win down top WRs with 3 a.m. game plan

NEW ORLEANS -- Maybe the New Orleans Saints should start putting all of their game plans together at 3 a.m. on Friday mornings.

Somehow the Saints (4-2) managed their most impressive offensive performance of the year in a 27-24 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, even though they had to keep adjusting on the fly when receiver Michael Thomas suffered a hamstring injury early in the week and receiver Emmanuel Sanders tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday afternoon.

Since the Saints had already installed so much of their offense with Sanders as part of the plan, coach Sean Payton...

The all-time passing touchdowns record is going to come down to who plays longer.

Tom Brady tied Drew Brees‘ NFL record with the 558th of his career. Brees threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the victory over the Panthers, and Brady has three so far against the Raiders.

Tampa Bay leads Las Vegas 38-20 late in the fourth quarter.

Peyton Manning finished his career with 539 before Brees and then Brady passed him.

Brady’s 4-yard touchdown pass to Chris Godwin with 6:40 remaining tied Brees. It followed earlier touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and Scotty Miller.

Brady is 31-of-43 for...

Daniel Alamillo has never been in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when it's rocking with 70,000-plus fans.

So the California native settled for the next best thing, catching a flight from California to be among the 3,000 fans allowed in the Dome on Sunday for the Saints' pivotal game against the Carolina Panthers.

"An amazing experience with a beautiful crowd," Alamillo said. "The soul of the city remains alive all through COVID-19."

Alamillo, 29, says he's been a Saints fan since he was 10.

He fell in love with the colors.

"And I fell in love with the history," he said.

How clutch were Saints on 3rd down vs. Panthers? They did something NFL hasn't seen in 3 decades

Against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, the New Orleans Saints enjoyed one of the best offensive performances on third down by any team in the last 30 years.

New Orleans converted 12 of its 14 third down attempts, an 85.7 % success rate. Pro Football Reference has single-game third-down data going back to the 1991 season, and prior to Sunday’s game, only one team had ever converted better than 85 % of its third downs (minimum eight attempts): The 2008 Saints.

Prior to Sunday, no other NFL team had converted better than 77 % of its third down attempts this season.

Quarterback Drew Brees...

Marquez Callaway took full advantage of his opportunity for the Saints in Week 7, and he appears to have dodged an injury scare in the process.

The rookie wide receiver told reporters after the game that he was fine after hobbling off the field and into the blue medical tent following the last of his 8-catch performance.

"I'm good," Callaway said after the Saints' 27-24 win. "Just got a little dinged up. But it's all good."

The injury occurred with just over 7 minutes remaining the fourth quarter after Callaway secured a 7-yard catch short of the first-down marker. The play helped set...

Cam Jordan: Saints knew Joey Slye wouldn’t make 65-yard field goal

The Saints had to sweat out a 65-yard field goal try to avoid overtime against the Panthers. As defensive end Cam Jordan tells it, there was no sweating at all.

“We know it’s not going in,” Jordan told PFT after Sunday’s 27-24 victory regarding the mindset before the attempt, which would have set an NFL record. “If anything, I don’t even think we sent our edge rushers. We knew this was out of this guy’s helm and it was straight and we were the entire time telling him like he wasn’t gonna make it and we all knew that. I think he knew that, and that’s how it played out.”

Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule explained during the offseason his decision to replace franchise quarterback Cam Newton with former New Orleans Saints Teddy Bridgewater with a simple explanation.

“He fits what we want to do,’’ Rhule said.

That never was more apparent than in Sunday’s 27-24 loss against the Saints in which Bridgewater went toe-to-toe with future Hall of Famer Drew Brees in a showcase of efficient quarterbacks.
