Keith Kirkwood experienced a number of firsts on Sunday (Nov. 11). The New Orleans Saints rookie wide receiver played in his first official NFL game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. He caught his first pass as a professional in the second quarter.

But what Kirkwood will remember most about his NFL debut occurred several hours later.

As we ramp up our analysis of the New Orleans Saints entering this all-important Week 11 game it’s important to remember a couple of things. First, football is chaos. More than we would like to believe the difference in a game comes down to pure luck. Second, they play the games for a reason. Sometimes good teams get beat by lesser teams because they just get outplayed.

Three things you need to know before betting on Eagles-Saints:

Saints coach Sean Payton

“We had the balance that we were looking for. I felt like that the run and the pass complemented each other, and I also thought it complemented what we were doing defensively. The third down numbers on defense were great; we were able to get off the field. So, all in all it was a pretty solid game.” ...

CINCINNATI -- Bold prediction: The New Orleans Saints will keep their spot as the No. 1 team in ESPN's NFL Power Rankings this week.

The Saints (8-1) scored on each of their first nine possessions Sunday in a 51-14 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals. The only thing that stopped them was the clock. Backup QB Teddy Bridgewater started taking a knee after the two-minute warning.

Apparently the Saints' offense was just getting warmed up during the first half of the 2018 season.

They have now leapfrogged the Chiefs as the top-scoring team in the NFL this season (36.7 points per...
