New Orleans Saints safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson received a fine for striking Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson out of bounds.
The defense answered the call In week seven, the Falcons defense was forced to stand tall against Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions to preserve a win. As we know by now, they did not and the Falcons suffered another last second, disappointing defeat. My main conclusion from that Detroit game was that the defense needs to grow up at some point in life and make plays for an offense that quite often sets the team up for victory.
The Carolina Panthers didn’t run the ball much when they visited the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome this past Sunday, only 12 designed runs in the entire game (basically runs that aren’t scrambles) for a total of 27 yards. While Matt Rule spent most of his time comfortable letting Teddy Bridgewater air the ball out (rightfully I might add), when he tried to run the ball his team was fairly unsuccessful.
