The New Orleans had to burn all three of their first-half timeouts in the first quarter, two of Drew Brees’ passes were tipped by his receivers before being intercepted and he was sacked twice. It wasn't a good day for the Saints offense as they fell to the Jets 26-20 in a set back that came rather unexpectedly.
While the Saints got Jimmy Graham back to a full number of snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Jets, top wideout Marques Colston missed his first game of the season to a knee injury. Colston’s production is way down in 2013, leading to speculation that he’s been bothered by this knee injury throughout the season. Colston was very limited in practice in the days leading up to Sunday’s...
According to Larry Holder of NOLA.com, the New Orleans Saints have re-signed CB Chris Carr to the roster on Wednesday.
The Saints are 6-2 at the half way point and we've got 8 games of grades to go with now. Overall the grades are pretty good, but of course the offense is way down and the defense is way up compared to last year. Below I've listed every player I've graded, through 8 games, from best to worst. To "qualify" you had to play a minimum of 4 "graded" games...
Lance Moore says he's confident the veteran Saints will clean up mistakes that have cost them two losses in their past three games.
New Orleans was primed to run away with the NFC South after a 5-0 start.
In the past month, however, the Saints (6-2) have seen Carolina pull within one game of the division lead.
The Saints and Panthers meet twice in December, but there are several...

The New Orleans Saints placed ILB Jonathan Vilma on season-ending injured reserve on Wednesday.
This move comes just four day after the Saints activated Vilma from injured reserve. Vilma was able to practice each of the past two weeks, but New Orleans apparently doesn’t believe he will be able to contribute this season.
Vilma, 31, is in the final year of his contract and will...
The New York Jets surprised the NFL Sunday when they defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-17. What may have been more surprising was one of the play calls made by the Saints. For some odd reason with the ball a nose away from the 35-yard line on 4th and inches they decided to go for a trick play; an end around that did not have a chance in being successful.
Come on Sean Payton...
The offense put up only 20 points in this game and with Jimmy Graham banged up and Darren Sproles out of this game early they really became one dimensional. This offense may be the worst of the Sean Payton era. The Saints can't really run the ball, and part of that is the offensive line and part of it is the play caller's such lack of confidence in the run he refuses to even...
The wife of New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson found a newspaper reporter's engagement ring after the team's 26-20 loss to the New York Jets.
Gayle Benson was in the women's restroom in the MetLife Stadium press box Sunday when she spotted the ring on a counter. She gave it to stadium security and later found out it belonged to Newsday's Jets beat writer, Kimberley...
The New York Jets have struggled with turnovers on both sides of the ball through the first half of the season. In Week 9, the Jets didn't turn it over, but they did turn it around. Gang Green entered their cross-conference bout with the New Orleans Saints with a minus-12 turnover ratio having snagged just three interceptions through eight games. Sunday, however, the Jets picked...
Darren Sproles suffered a concussion early in yesterday’s 26-20 loss to the New York Jets, ESPN.com reports.
Sproles made a two yard catch on the first drive for the Saints and was dropped immediately by Jets’ safety Antonio Allen. Sproles was tested on the sideline for a concussion, and it was quickly determined he would not return to the game.
According to New Orleans Times...

News courtesy of ESPN Dallas:
Sunday night’s game is sure to be a showdown. Needless to say the ball will see lots of airtime with Tony Romo and Drew Brees behind every snap. Sean Payton is even giving Tony Romo props for having such a spectacular season so far.
"He's having, I think, the best year of his career this season right now," says the Saints...
Dallas Cowboys (5-4) at New Orleans Saints (6-2)
The Saints lost in New York last week to the Jets and it was viewed as a huge upset. Technically it was, the Saints were favored by 7 points, but I don’t know why anyone was shocked. The Saints lost in New England. The Patriots lost in New York. The Saints aren’t nearly as good of a team on the road as at home, but this week they...
