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.

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.

METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees summed up the most surprising loss of the 2019 NFL season in one word.

“Unacceptable,” Brees said, loudly slamming his fist into the palm of his other hand for added emphasis when he was reminded that the New Orleans Saints had never scored so few points at home in the Superdome since he and Sean Payton arrived in 2006.

“There you go. Unacceptable.”

Fortunately, the Saints (7-2) built up enough of a cushion during the first half of this...

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome has rolled off the tongue for the better part of a decade, but the iconic piece of New Orleans's skyline and the team that uses it will have a big decision to make in the next few seasons.

The 10-year naming rights contract with the German car manufacturer is up in 2021. And the decision for its renewal or a deal with another brand will be up to the Saints, said Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District board chairman Kyle France on...

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore wins NFL's Week 10 Way to Play award

Before New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore went to the locker room with his hamstring injury in Week 10, he drew some positive attention to his playmaking, winning the league's weekly NFL Way to Play award.

The award came after he recognized how Atlanta threw a screen pass to wideout Julio Jones. Lattimore pivoted toward Jones as the Falcon was trying to catch the ball, but Lattimore lowered his helmet right on the ball to deflect the pass. Lattimore...

Saints up to the challenge of potentially playing without Marshon Lattimore

One snap.

That's all the rest Marshon Lattimore had through the first eight games of the season.

The New Orleans Saints starting cornerback, the one who usually travels with the opposing team's premier receiver, has helped shut down Pro Bowl wideouts like Houston's DeAndre Hopkins, Dallas' Amari Cooper, Tampa Bay's Mike Evans and Atlanta's Julio Jones.

Even then, only 55.9% of passes thrown to receivers he's covering have resulted in a catch.

The Saints won the first meeting, 31-24, in the Superdome in Week 5 with Teddy Bridgewater in at quarterback.

The Saints are 34-21 against the Buccaneers all-time, and the Bucs have never won the season series against the Saints as divisional rivals. Since the Saints won game one, that stat lives on for another year.
