We knew that this was certainly a possibility as we got into the season'

By John DeShazier - Senior Writer | New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints will be without starting safety Marcus Maye for the next three games, as the player and team learned Wednesday that Maye was suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Maye started at strong safety the first two games, as the Saints opened 2-0 for the first time since 2013. He totaled 13 tackles, a sack, an interception and a pass defensed in the two games, but a possible suspension had been looming since Maye reached a plea deal and was given six months probation following a 2021 driving under the influence charge.

Maye will miss Sunday's road game against Green Bay, New Orleans' next home game Oct. 1 against Tampa Bay, and the Oct. 8 road trip to play against New England.

"We've got several options that we have to fill in in that role," Saints Coach Dennis Allen said. "We'll go through the week of practice, we'll make a determination on where we're going. ...

We’re off and running towards Week 3 of the NFL regular season, and just seven teams are undefeated — with five of them playing in the NFC, including the New Orleans Saints. But how do these different teams stack up against one another? What are their strengths and weaknesses? Who are the pretenders and Super Bowl contenders in the bunch?

To find out, we considered two of the most important stats in the sport: conversion percentage on third downs and inside the red zone, on both offense and defense. This gives us an idea of which teams are sustaining long drives that end with points on...

NFL Picks Week 3: Ahead of the Pack

After two weeks, the New Orleans Saints find themselves with a 2-0 record for the first time in a decade. Although offensive inconsistencies have troubled the team in the first two games, the defense has been downright dominant. The offense will still be without All-Pro running back Alvin Kamara for one more week, but will add rookie running back Kendre Miller this week, which will hopefully add a little spark to the unit.

Now the Saints need to beat the Pack in order to stay ahead of the pack in a stunningly competitive and competent NFC South this season. With Tampa and Atlanta both...

The New Orleans Saints will be facing the Green Bay Packers on Sunday where they hope to go 3-0. During the Saints’ Monday Night game against the Carolina Panthers, running back Jamaal Williams suffered a hamstring injury that head coach Dennis Allen said would take Williams “some time” to recover from. Rookie running back Kendre Miller, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury of his own, is looking to make his NFL debut on Sunday vs. the Packers.

Saints vs. Packers: Get to know New Orleans' Week 3 opponent

The New Orleans Saints (2-0) are on the road again this week with a big conference matchup against the Green Bay Packers (1-1) rapidly approaching. Green Bay is coming off a tough-to-swallow fourth quarter collapse against the Atlanta Falcons last week, who are normally on the receiving end of these kind of things.

And the Packers are looking awfully vulnerable. They’re dealing with injuries to multiple starters (and in some cases at the same position group) with an inexperienced quarterback under center.

But let’s get to know this Packers team a little better. Packers Wire managing...

The New Orleans Saints practiced outside on Thursday in preparation for Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field — with speakers pumping in crowd noise to simulate the thunderous Green Bay Packers home crowd.

Just one Saints player wasn’t spotted at practice during the period of stretching open to the media: running back Jamaal Williams, who is dealing with a hamstring injury that may sideline him for some time.

Attendance was a larger issue for Green Bay. The Packers welcomed star running back Aaron Jones back to practice, but they’re managing knee injuries to starting offensive linemen David...

Now that Week 2 of the NFL season is over, let’s look at how the NFC South has fared after two weeks of football.

State of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

The Bucs moved to 2-0 after defeating the Chicago Bears 27-17. This team is turning heads and might be one of the biggest shockers of the NFL. Tampa Bay looked solid on both sides of the ball.

Superstar WR Mike Evans caught six passes for 171 yards and a touchdown, while QB Baker Mayfield had over 300 passing yards. The team’s defense also made quick work of Bears QB Justin Fields. They forced the Ohio State product to throw two...

NEW ORLEANS — This past offseason the New Orleans Saints pursuit and eventual acquisition of Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr made all the headlines. Saints coach Dennis Allen and New Orleans Saints going all in on a veteran quarterback Allen had a connection to was huge news and much discussed nationally. Dennis Allen made a move for his defense that garnered hardly any attention nationally because national experts didn’t understand why he did it, but in my mind it was as critical a decision as signing Derek Carr.

Dennis Allen decided to remake almost the entire Saints' defensive...

Week 2 of the NFL season has concluded, and for the New Orleans Saints, it ended with a 20-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers. With that close of a game, special teams were extremely critical to their success, especially considering both their kicker and punter are rookies in their NFL debut season. In this article, we will analyze the week 2 game, taking a look at both Lou Hedley and Blake Grupe and how they did in this performance on punts and field goals respectively. So, without further ado, we go to Blake Grupe.

Here’s your weekly referee assignment: the NFL has scheduled Brad Rogers and his crew to oversee Week 3’s game between the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers, putting one of the league’s most flag-happy officiating staffs in line for a prominent matchup in the early-afternoon slate.

New Orleans has been fouled just 10 times through the first two weeks, tied for seventh-fewest around the league; their 77 penalty yards are eighth-fewest. Conversely, the Packers are one of the most heavily-fouled teams with 16 penalty flags (tied for 28th) for 130 penalty yards (24th). Green Bay has...

Much like last week, the New Orleans Saints dealt with similar issues on offense in this matchup versus the Carolina Panthers but also showed the same resilience defensively, essentially winning these last two games for the team.

Offensively, the Saints continued to have some problems up front particularly in pass protection this week. The running game looked much better this game. The team still struggled to handle designed stunts and some outside pressures forced by the Panthers, which turned into four sacks allowed on the day and a handful of disruptions.

On this play below, you see...
