There we go: after it was reported Monday that the New Orleans Saints intend to re-sign Kenny Stills, their fifth round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Stills himself confirmed the news in a message from his official Twitter account — which was given a minor facelift.

Stills changed his Twitter profile picture to an edited photo of himself wearing a Saints beanie and No. 12 jersey, presumably his new number in New Orleans. Stills wore No. 84 during his first stop with the Saints before changing to No. 10 after his trade to the Miami Dolphins. Once Stills landed with the Houston Texans in 2019, he picked up No. 12, and now he’s sticking with it. ...

Week 4 early NFL odds, betting lines: Saints are big favorites vs. New York Giants

Seems like the lines makers have no idea what to do with the New Orleans Saints.

Last week, they were a three-point dog going into New England, and this week in what is truly their home opener, they are an eight-point favorite vs. the New York Giants, who have lost two heartbreakers in a row.

Will the Saints defense continue to be as dominant as it was in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers and this past Sunday against the Patriots? Will the offensive line be able to hold up despite injuries to Erik McCoy and Terron Armstead?

That’s why picking NFL games is fun – but also very tough...

Malcolm Jenkins is the Week 3 Saints player of the game

It was tough to single out one player as the best on the field for the New Orleans Saints this week. Marshon Lattimore made a compelling case in his triumphant return from hand surgery, capping their win over the New England Patriots with an interception after locking up every receiver they lined up against him. Demario Davis was worthy, you, showing off the sideline-to-sideline speed that fans coveted for years before his arrival.

But in the end I went with Malcolm Jenkins. The veteran safety was all over the place on Sunday, and his highlight reel-worthy defensive touchdown coming out...

We’ve good news and bad news on Terron Armstead’s injury against the New England Patriots, when running back Tony Jones Jr.’s helmet collided with Armstead’s left arm while assisting with a block.

The Saints have received some relatively good news on their left tackle.

Armstead has been New Orleans’ starting left tackle since 2014 but never played all 16 games in a season.

James Hurst replaced Armstead on Sunday.

Though Armstead is expected to return this season, New Orleans is now without two-fifths of its starting...

Back in his familiar do-everything role on offense and special teams, Hill ran the ball four times for 26 yards and a touchdown during a game-clinching drive in the fourth quarter of the Saints' 28-13 road win against the New England Patriots.Stephen Lew/USA TODAY Sports
