Matt Ryan is one of the best quarterbacks in the league this season. He is going up against the New Orleans Saints defense, who are the worst in the league. They have allowed 450 yards of offense each game this season, which is a NFL record. It will be a fun game with Matt Ryan and Drew Brees going head-to-head in what is, in my opinion, the game of the week. Look for Matt Ryan to get around 300 yards and at least two touchdown passes in this one.

In nullifying Sean Payton's contract, Roger Goodell may have actually been rewarding Payton while simultaneously punishing the New Orleans Saints in a big way. There's been a lot of talk about Payton moving to the Cowboys at the conclusion of his suspension, and while I'm not sure he'll leave New Orleans, the whole situation does give him a great deal of leverage...
The Saints are winning games right now but are there enough games left to get back into the NFC playoff picture. The teams that are ahead of them include Green Bay, Detroit, Minnesota, Seattle and Arizona. I don't think they have enough time.
I'm sitting at 84-49 heading into the weekend. I need to have a huge run to get over .750 for the season.
Mickey Loomis, New Orleans Saints general manager, went back to work on Tuesday after serving his eight game suspension, and although he has lots to do, one of the first things he did was look over suspended coach Sean Payton’s contract. Loomis said [...]
The New Orleans Saints will be without running back Darren Sproles and starting offensive tackle Strief for Sunday's home game against Atlanta. Sproles is sidelined for a second straight week because of a broken hand and Strief has a groin injury. Both were listed as out for Sunday on the Saints' injury report along with defensive end Junior Galette (ankle) and wide receiver...

The Saints held the Eagles to 13 points, but I still have no confidence in this defense. They surrendered 400 yards for the 8th straight game, an NFL record to start a season, but the Eagles’ dumb mistakes forced them to settle for 13 points. This was the 9th most in NFL history that a team has surrendered in NFL history and still held their opponent...
You can all bow down to your Saints Nation Guru this week which is none other than: ME. Yes, that's right. So I get my photo posted in this week's Guru post. Turns out I do know what I'm talking about maybe? I'm now tied with JamesMorse and AllisonSmith atop the leaderboard, so you better watch out, I'm going for gold.
Thanks for participating last week but...
New Orleans running back Darren Sproles (hand) will miss Week 10, according to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times Picayune.Fantasy Spin:Sproles had surgery to repair a broken hand last week and the initial timetable projected 4-to-6 weeks. He's coming along much quicker than that, but this week the Saints will again use their four-man backfield of; Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory...
There must be something about NFL free agency and the name Payton -- phonetically speaking, that is.
First, the Indianapolis Colts cut quarterback Peyton Manning earlier this year, creating a free-agent frenzy the likes of which NFL has never seen. Now, reports have surfaced that Sean Peyton, on league-imposed sabbatical from his position as head coach of the New Orleans Saints...
Saints running back Darren Sproles will miss his second consecutive game with a hand injury as New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt listed Sproles as out on Friday's injury report for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Sproles won't be the only important player to miss...
While Darren Sproles is out for the next few weeks, it is safe to rely on Pierre Thomas.
Fantasy. Darren Sproles is statistically the best receiving running back in the NFL. In part because he is a great receiver out of the backfield, but mostly because Drew Brees loves throwing the check down pass to his running backs. As the only remaining running back with a history of catching...
