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.

USO Gulf Coast and New Orleans Saints responsible for this surprise Last Fan
Standing memory that will last a lifetime.

By Chet Landry | WLOX

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.

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.

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...

NFC playoff picture: Getting tighter at the top

The 49ers lost their first game of the year on Monday night, which didn’t knock them from the top perch in the NFC playoff picture but did make things tighter in the race for the No. 1 seed in the conference.

A win would have left them two games up on the Packers and Saints in the loss column and three games up on the Seahawks on the same front. All three of those teams are right on the 49ers’ tails now, however.

Here’s how the entire NFC playoff picture looks with...

Allen Keller made the hour-plus drive on Sunday from Baton Rouge to his tailgating spot near the corner of Loyola and Perdido just like he does every Saints' game day.

Except for Keller, a die-hard member of the Who Dat nation, this wasn't just any old tailgate.

For one, the rival Atlanta Falcons were in town.

And two, Keller celebrated his 38th birthday on Friday.

So he wanted to make sure this one was extra special, even more meaningful than all the others he...

Saints offensive line picks up the pieces from loss to Falcons: 'We didn't get it done up front, that's for sure'

The New Orleans Saints could point fingers regarding the offensive line woes from Sunday.

Starting left guard Andrus Peat missed the entire second half with an arm injury, throwing reserve lineman Will Clapp into the fire after he had played just one snap in the game before his relief stint.

Clapp said after the game that the situation wasn't ideal, but he still had to be prepared.

"That's what I'm here for," Clapp said. "If somebody goes down, I've got to be...

Part of the misery that was a 26-9 loss to the Atlanta Falcons for the Saints came when top cornerback Marshon Lattimore left the game with an injury. With a potent Tampa Bay passing attack on deck next for New Orleans, the challenge of bouncing back in the NFC South this week may have an added degree of difficulty.

Lattimore strained his hamstring and is considered week-to week, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network tweeted Monday.
