FLOWERY BRANCH – After their last two games, the Saints have been accused of “dirty” play.
After their win over Minnesota, Adrian Peterson, who was returning from high ankle sprain, questioned cornerback’s Jabari Greer’s tackling methods, which included a twist of his ankle while at the bottom of a pile.
“I came into the game kind of expecting that coming back from a high ankle sprain,” Peterson said. “Guys are going to try to take their shots when we’re on the pile and try to twist it up and things like that.
“I felt like it kind of got overboard. I got up and kind of got in his face. Thank God I was able to keep my composure.”
