Cam Jordan was lying comfortably on one of the giant bean bag chairs in the New Orleans Saints locker room, eyes closed, when a statistic was brought to his attention: In their last four games, the Saints have recorded 20 sacks.

“Is that true?” Jordan said, perking up just a bit.

Indeed it is. As the 2018 season reaches its final leg, the New Orleans Saints defense has ramped up the pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Thirteen of those 20 sacks have come in the last two weeks.

‘It’s going to rain.’ Saints banking on adverse weather this weekend in Tampa Bay

As far as New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is concerned, there is no “chance” of rain for his team’s road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week.

“It doesn’t look like it’s going to rain — it’s going to rain,” Payton said.

Indeed, the forecast for the Tampa Bay area calls for 100 percent chance of rain Sunday (Dec. 9) with thunderstorms in the morning.

With that in mind, the coach is planning to put his team through an outdoor practice Thursday (Dec. 6) to prepare for some less than ideal weather conditions in Tampa Bay this weekend — “wet ball drills, the whole nine yards,”

The New Orleans Saints are coming off of a down week in which they saw their 10-game win streak come to an end at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys. After brushing off that loss on Thursday Night Football, the Saints have had some extra time to rest and practice for Week 14. On Sunday, the Saints will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and there is a lot on the line as far as things go for the playoffs and the NFC South.

Despite the fact that the Saints are coming off of a loss, they still have a record of 10-2 and sit on top of the NFC South. Their closest competition in the division is from the Carolina Panthers who are 6-6 and they are followed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 5-7 and the Atlanta Falcons at 4-8 as shown in the standings on CBS Sports.

Jeff Duncan: LSU was the best job Ryan Nielsen didn't take thanks to Sean Payton

When LSU tried to hire Ryan Nielsen to be its defensive coordinator in January, the Saints defensive line coach was ready to take the job.

Nielsen, like most young coaches, was ambitious. He wanted what all career-oriented people want out of life: more responsibility; more money; more long-term security for himself and his family.

Nielsen played for Ed Orgeron at Southern California and was eager to join forces with his old coach and move up the ladder to become a first-time coordinator at the Power 5 level.

At the time, it seemed like a no-brainer move. LSU’s defense was brimming with...

In addition to other donations that Davis has made to the community including the Hospitality Cares Pandemic Response Fund, it was announced this week that Davis’ Devoted Dreamers Foundation will hold their 1st annual “Dining for...

The Saints welcomed the bye week to rest and get ready for the remaining games of the regular season.

The Cardinals are still holding the top spot on the Top 5 and are the only undefeated team in the NFL. With all of their success, the 49ers cooled down the Cardinals’ offense last week. Will COVID-19 be the catalyst to take Arizona to their first loss of the season? The team manages three positive COVID cases, one player and two staff members, according to multiple reports.

According to NFL reports, the Cardinals is one of a few NFL teams that are 100% vaccinated. The offense has been...

The Week 6 bye felt early for the New Orleans Saints when it was first announced, but the break may have come at just the right time. Eight different starters are working to return from injuries or suspensions over the next few weeks, which will bring enough salary cap relief for the Saints to be active buyers at the NFL trade deadline if they so choose.

And the schedule sets up well for the Saints moving forwards. Just half of their 12 remaining games are against teams with a winning record right now, including a pair of divisional matchups with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They’ve only...

The Seattle Seahawks lost two of their best players to injured reserve this week, with Russell Wilson recovering from finger surgery and Chris Carson managing a neck injury. That puts them up against the New Orleans Saints next week without some critical playmakers.

New Orleans will fly out the Pacific Northwest for a Monday night game on Oct. 25, coming out of their bye week refreshed and well-rested. They’re expecting to get a number of their own injured players back from various reserve lists, including as many as four starters on offense (wide receivers Michael Thomas and Tre’Quan...

If seven is a lucky number, Jacobi Martin hit the jackpot.

On Sept. 28, her newborn son entered the world at 7:03 p.m. and tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 7 ounces.

Seven is also the number of her favorite New Orleans Saints player: quarterback Taysom Hill, who also just happens to be the namesake of her baby boy.

“It was meant to be,” Martin said.

Martin, of Choctaw, Mississippi, claims to be the biggest Saints fan she knows. The moment she discovered she was pregnant she knew she wanted to name her first child after a Saints player, no matter the sex — ultimately choosing Taysom...

The New Orleans Saints are among four teams who have the first bye on the 2021 NFL schedule this weekend. New Orleans has a 3-2 record going into the off week.

They've done it in spite of playing four of five games on the road and having team operations displaced to Texas because of Hurricane Ida. The Saints have also dealt with a lengthy list of players unavailable because of injury.

New Orleans has played better offensively in the last two weeks after a rocky start. They've also had some ups and downs defensively, but have generally played well enough to support the team.

DraftKings DFS Plays for Week 6

Last week’s recommendations and their DraftKings points:

Well, at least last week’s lineup did not curse any player to the injury reserve list. Pollard, Chase, and Arizona returned great value on their cost for the week. Unfortunately, Jones Jr. and Ertz let teams down. Jones Jr confusingly took a backseat to Tavon Austin, Jamal Agnew, and Dan Arnold for the Jaguars on the week. Meanwhile, Ertz was disappointing given the opportunities. Ertz had the second highest targets of any Eagles pass-catcher in week 5, but only turned six targets into one catch for seven yards. The volume was there...
