Panthers vs Saints: Can Drew Brees escape sacks?

Panthers vs Saints: Can Drew Brees escape sacks?

One key to this game will be Drew Brees’ ability to mitigate pressure. It’s hate week. The Saints are a terrible team. This should be easy, right? Of course, if you’ve been paying attention to the Panthers then you know the last thing they call easy is a divisional match up. Keep in mind that match up is against an all-time great quarterback in Drew Brees and all of a sudden you should be at least a little nervous. We know the Saints have a joke of a defense and an offensive line that makes ours look good. Put all of that aside and pay attention to one thing if the score is still...

Panthers vs. Saints: Defensive Preview

Panthers vs. Saints: Defensive Preview

The Panthers face their toughest test yet when Drew Brees and the Saints come marching into town. Two weeks, six points allowed. No matter the opposition, that’s a feat that warrants praise. It hasn’t been done since the Baltimore Ravens held the Buccaneers and Raiders to that same combined point total in 2006. That Ravens team went on to finish the season with a 13-3 record before bowing out in the divisional round in the playoffs. The Panthers are looking to replicate that regular season success and build on it with a deep playoff run. Granted, the opposition hasn’t been stellar....

Pats Pulpit Podcast Episode 085: How the Patriots rebounded against the Saints

Also, should the Patriots be worried about the Texans? What teams around the league look good? The New England Patriots needed a win against the New Orleans Saints and earn one in decisive fashion. Tom Brady looked excellent, Rob Gronkowski was productive, and James White and Chris Hogan combined to replace Julian Edelman in the offense. The defense also played fine. Drew Brees and the Saints moved the ball up and down the field and a decision to go for it on fourth down and a missed field goal took six points off the board and allowed the Patriots to add a field goal before the half. This...

With two up and two down, Patriots rookie Deatrich Wise Jr. stands in good company

With two up and two down, Patriots rookie Deatrich Wise Jr. stands in good company

Since 2000, five Patriots rookies have recorded sacks in Week 1. Deatrich Wise Jr. followed up in Week 2. Deatrich Wise Jr. worked his way into some history Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It transpired 35 yards from the end zone, on third-and-7 with 11:56 to play in the third quarter, as the Arkansas product loomed wide across from Andrus Peat. The shotgun snap was handled and around the arc Wise traveled, strong-arming Peat until the 6-foot-7, 316-pound interim left tackle’s back was facing the line of scrimmage. Wise was facing the back of Drew Brees by then. Brees may not have...

Brandin Cooks Multiple sources informed of the situation tell Ian Rapoport that the Saints ultimately traded WR Brandin Cooks to the Patriots because of a combination of his unhappiness with his role, his doubts that QB Drew Brees could get him the ball deep, New Orleans being frustrated Cooks focusing on his numbers and their disbelief he … The post NFL Notes: Brandin Cooks, Jaguars, Patriots, Redskins appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

Week 2 Patriots vs Saints: Game time, TV schedule, channels, betting odds, updates, and live online streaming

Every detail you need to know in order to watch the Patriots take on the Saints. The (0-1) New England Patriots travel to face the (0-1) New Orleans Saints. The Patriots are looking to rebound from their week 1 embarrassment and to get the 2017 season back on track. Teams that start the year 0-2 have roughly a 10% chance of reaching the postseason (8%-12% based on how far back you look), so the Patriots must come out laser-focused. QB Tom Brady and QB Drew Brees face off in what is the most impressive battle of the old guns in league history. Hopefully they can put together a strong...
