METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints coach Dennis Allen entered this week sounding more optimistic about the defense he oversees — even if he wasn’t particularly happy about outcome of his team’s latest game.

New Orleans (1-1) boasted the seventh-ranked defense in the NFL last season and has many core players back on that side of the ball.

The unit hardly lived up to its reputation in New Orleans’ 27-26 comeback victory at Atlanta to open the season. But the way it stifled Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady-led offense for most last Sunday’s loss in New Orleans had Allen offering largely positive reviews heading into this Sunday’s road game at Carolina (0-2).

“We played really well in the run game,” Allen said. “We challenged in coverage, which was good to see. We affected the quarterback.

“The ball got out pretty quick in that game, but yet he wasn’t throwing to a lot of open receivers,” Allen continued. “So, I thought overall it was effective.” ...

Has the Saints' pass protection been as bad as the 10 sacks suggest? Let's take a look

If numbers don’t lie, then it must be true that the New Orleans Saints are struggling to protect their quarterback.

Jameis Winston has absorbed 10 sacks through two games, more than any NFL passer not named Joe Burrow (13). The persistent negative plays have felt representative of the team's sluggish offensive start.

The numbers are especially concerning given this week’s opponent — the Carolina Panthers — and what happened the last time Winston and the Saints played them on their turf: four sacks, six quarterback hits and 16 pressures in a brutal 26-7 loss in the second week of 2021...

Rod Walker: Meet the diehard Saints fan from Kenner who beat out Baker Mayfield for high school QB job

Chances are, you don’t know Colin Lagasse.

With his beloved New Orleans Saints playing the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, this seems like a perfect time for you to get to know him.

Lagasse grew up in Kenner.

If things had worked out the way Lagasse thought they would, he would have someday become the starting quarterback at Brother Martin High School where his dad was a coach and where his older brother played.

Hurricane Katrina altered those plans right around the time Lagasse became a teenager.

The family evacuated to Austin, Texas, where six years later Lagasse found himself in a...

Saints lose rookie cornerback Alontae Taylor to injured reserve

You hate to see this. Alontae Taylor stepped up for the New Orleans Saints in a big spot last week, playing in place of Paulson Adebo (who was sidelined by an ankle injury) and Marshon Lattimore (who had been ejected) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The rookie cornerback responded well, but a knee injury in Thursday’s practice session has sent him to injured reserve. He’ll have to sit out at least the next four games, but it’s unclear how serious this is, and whether he’ll be out of action for a longer time.

So it’s on to the next man up. The Saints elevated rookie corner DaMarcus...

A week after turning in a strong performance in relief of Marshon Lattimore, Alontae Taylor got some bad news Saturday.

The New Orleans Saints placed Taylor on injured reserve Saturday, after the rookie cornerback suffered a knee injury during Thursday's practice. To help make up for his loss, New Orleans called up defensive back Damarcus Fields from the practice squad.

It's not clear how much time Taylor will miss, but at minimum he will not be available for the next four games.

The Saints selected Taylor in the second round of this year's draft.

Taylor dealt with injury...

NFL Fines Marshon Lattimore for Role in Bucs Scuffle

We said earlier in the week that we were expecting some fines this week. On Saturday, the NFL handed down some fines from the Bucs-Saints game from last Sunday. Included in those is Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore. According to the league, they fined Lattimore $13,367 for unnecessary roughness. However, he wasn't alone. Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette also received the same fine from the scuffle.

Tom Brady was not fined, but separate incidents saw Carlton Davis get fined $13,261 for unsportsmanlike conduct and Devin White fined $11,139 for unncessary roughness from the game...

The New Orleans Saints offense will look to bounce back in Week 3 of the NFL season against the Carolina Panthers. Jameis Winston, still dealing with ankle and back injuries, had three interceptions last week and will need to have a much cleaner performance against Carolina in this one. The defense has looked as good as ever, but they will hope to find some pass rush success.

The Panthers are 0-2, with head coach Matt Rhule firmly on the hot seat. Meanwhile, Baker Mayfield searches for his first win in Carolina. Here’s how you can tune in to the action, wherever you are:

NFL levies multiple fines following Buccaneers-Saints brawl in Week 2

The NFL fined multiple players for their role in last week’s fight between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sparked by some shoving between Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore — which was escalated by a cheap shot from Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans, who got himself and Lattimore thrown of the game. Evans was suspended for this week’s Bucs game with the Green Bay Packers.

Both Fournette and Lattimore lost $13,367 for their roles in the fracas. Fournette is earning $117,647 a week in base salary, whereas Lattimore is making...

Marshon Lattimore escaped a suspension for his role in a fourth quarter fight with Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans last week, but his pocketbook will be a little lighter.

The NFL fined Lattimore $13,367 for his participation in the fracas, according to a league source. He was disqualified from the game after the fight was broken up.

Earlier this week, the NFL suspended Evans for this week's contest against the Green Bay Packers. He did not face an additional fine from the NFL, but will lose out on the game check he was due for Sunday's game.

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was the only player suspended for Sunday’s brawl between the Buccaneers and Saints, but he wasn’t the only player to face league discipline.

Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore and Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette were each fined $13,367 for unnecessary roughness for their actions in the brawl.

Lattimore and Fournette were already going at it when Evans escalated things by sprinting to Lattimore and knocking him to the ground.

The incident started as verbal jawing between Tom Brady and Lattimore after Lattimore told the officials they should...

The NFL regular season continues, and so too continues the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles making their predictions for each week’s slate of games.

In Week 1, the CSC staff unanimously believed the New Orleans Saints would beat the Atlanta Falcons. Fast forward to the end of the game, and the Saints - eventually - took care of business in a comeback win over the rival Falcons. Last week, the CSC staff was divided about whether the Saints could beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lo and behold, the Saints ultimately lost that game at home in the Dome.

Now in Week 3, the CSC staff is back...

The Saints look to finish out their three-game NFC South stint on a positive note when they take on the Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday. After last week's disappointing home opening loss to the Bucs, this will be a team that will want to rebound in a big way before they head across the pond to London for Week 4's matchup with the Vikings. In order to do so, there's a few key positions we're paying close attention to for New Orleans that will dictate success.

Alontae Taylor was ruled out of action with a knee injury on the team's final injury report, and that will be a pretty big loss on...

The New Orleans Saints week 3 matchup with the Carolina Panthers could be more interesting than initially expected, and it primarily revolves around this specific matchup. You have one of the better running backs in the league when healthy in Christian McCaffrey, vs one of the most proficient run defenses in the league over the last five seasons. In this article, I will cover the Saints’ past against the Panthers in terms of run defense, and then what we should expect this season based on that information and current statistics.

Could a loss to the Saints end Matt Rhule's run with the Panthers?

Are we witnessing the final weeks of the Matt Rhule regime? The embattled Carolina Panthers head coach has struggled to find on-field success since being hired back in 2020, at times feuding with his former offensive coordinator Joe Brady and local media in Carolina. Speculation is already swirling about his interest in returning to college as Nebraska’s next coach, replacing Scott Frost. His Panthers team has finished third and fourth in the division standings in the last two years, and now they’re 0-2 with the New Orleans Saints coming to town. Could another loss do him in?

The Panthers added a little more depth to their defensive line for Sunday’s game against the Saints.

The team announced that defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon has been promoted from the practice squad. Nixon will revert back after the game and players can go through that process three times without having to be waived or released.

Nixon was a Panthers fifth-round pick last season. He had nine tackles and a half-sack in seven appearances as a rookie and did not play in either of the first two games this season.

The Panthers put Bravvion Roy on injured reserve this week. The move left them...

The New Orleans Saints will be wearing their home jerseys on the road this week, with the Carolina Panthers opting to use their away uniforms in Charlotte on Sunday. That means the Saints are wearing their black jerseys (along with gold pants), which the team announced, likely in a ploy by the Panthers to make things a little hotter and heavier for the Saints under the North Carolina sunshine.

It probably won’t make much of a difference. Sunday’s weather forecast calls for a partly cloudy sky and highs of 79 degrees Fahrenheit, with 55% humidity. That’s, ah, kind of mild compared to the...
