  • NFL Week 6 Grades: Saints get B+ for wild shootout win over Lions, Falcons get an F

    The wildest game of the NFL season took place on Sunday, and if you blinked or went to the bathroom during the three-plus hours that the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints were on the field in New Orleans, you probably missed at least three touchdowns.  The craziest thing about this win for the Saints might have been the fact that Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense had almost nothing to do with it. Although the Saints defense has struggled over the past few seasons, they put on a show against Detroit with three touchdowns. Not only did Cameron Jordan and Kenny Vaccaro both score after the Lions turned the ball over in their own end zone, but we also got a 27-yard pick-six from Saints cornerback

  • Does Aaron Rodgers' injury make NFC North a wide-open race?

    ESPN Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy expresses disappointment about Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone, but says the team will rally around backup QB Brett Hundley. The last time Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a major injury (broken collarbone on non-throwing shoulder in 2013) and missed time, Green Bay went 2-4-1. Now with a broken collarbone on his throwing shoulder, Rodgers could miss the rest of the 2017 season. With Rodgers in the lineup, the Packers were favored to win the NFC North and contend for the Super Bowl. Now his injury opens the door for the Vikings, Lions and Bears -- or does it? Here's a closer look at who will win the NFC North and why: It's Oct. 16, and the Packers

  • Fantasy football, Week 6: Who to start and sit among quarterbacks

    Week 6 of the fantasy football season is here, and we're back with another crop of start/sit options. We have a nice set of data about each team through five weeks, and can make informed decisions on good plays and traps. With that in mind, we'll pick quarterbacks who should exceed expectations in Week 6, along with three you should probably sit. Start We already know that Brees is a much better player at home than on the road — as we like to say, the Superdome is the Coors Field of football. But Brees takes it to a whole other level when he plays home games coming off a bye week. Here’s his key stats in his last three such games: 2016 – 465 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT 2013 – 332 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INT

  • Khiry Robinson: Running back works out for New Orleans Saints

    Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The New Orleans Saints worked out running back Khiry Robinson on Monday, following the departure of Adrian Peterson. A source told the New Orleans Advocate that Robinson was in town for the workout. Robinson entered the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted rookie free agent signing by the Saints. He played his first three seasons in New Orleans before joining the Jets in 2016. Robinson, 27, has 788 yards and eight touchdowns on 194 career carries. He had 22 yards on eight carries last season for the Jets, appearing in one game. The Jets placed Robinson on injured reserve in December due to a broken leg.

  • The Adrian Peterson trade looks like a win-win for Saints and Cardinals

    The New Orleans Saints made a stir last week when they traded running back Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals. It was easy to look at Peterson’s lack of production with the Saints and the Cardinals’ shaky offensive line and come to the conclusion that the 32-year-old wouldn’t be much better off in Arizona than he was in New Orleans. Wrong. The seven-time Pro Bowler finished the game with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in his debut with the Cardinals. He was the bell cow running back the Cardinals needed. He also helped take some pressure off quarterback Carson Palmer in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints saw immediate improvements in their running game too.
