The Packers will be without cornerback Davon House (shoulder) and running back James Starks (turf toe) for the fourth straight game.

AROUND THE WEB
Brees has played three of the NFL's worst defenses so far - Redskins, Panthers, and Chiefs - with two of those matchups at home. Nonetheless, Brees has "just" 904 passing yards, 7 TDs vs. 5 INTs, and a 6.7 YPA. Not awful stats, certainly, but they're a far cry from the Brees we saw in 2011.
I spent a fair amount of time this week trying to figure out which...
CRY ME A RIVER
Clay Matthews says the Saints are like a "wounded dog" coming into Green Bay and that he doesn't feel sorry for them.
The New Orleans Saints could get it done, now they are off to a 0-4 start. Drew Brees did what he could in this one, the Saints defense just could stop Aaron Rodgers from finding the end-zone 4 times to give the Packers a one point margin if victory over the Saints. This one has to hurt Bress more than the other three losses. Brees threw for 446 yards and had three touchdown passes...
I completed my second trade with Colbey from Cardboard Collections. Colbey contacted me about a few cards from my Want List he could help out with, and our second deal was underway after a few e-mails. I received two relics and a bit of Ginter help when all was said and done.First up, a sweet Darren Sproles relic, complete with a powder blue piece of jersey. Every Chargers' relic...
Drew Brees Ties a Long-Time Record Today In Green Bay -
On a 20-yd TD pass to WR Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints Drew Brees has tied Johnny Unitas’ NFL record for most consecutive games with a TD pass at 47! Unitas’ record spanned from 1956-60. 52 years later, Brees has tied it!
Original Story Here!
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has now thrown a touchdown pass in 47 consecutive NFL games, tying him with Johnny Unitas for the longest streak in NFL history.
Brees threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Marques Colston in the first quarter against the Packers to tie the game at 7 apiece. He looks to break the record at home next week against the San Diego Chargers. Source...
As expected, injured New Orleans Saints players linebacker David Hawthorne (hamstring), linebacker Jonathan Casillas (neck) and defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
The other Saints inactives are defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker, offensive tackle Bryce Harris, running back Chris Ivory and cornerback Elbert...
The New Orleans Saints finally saw an offense they recognized.
The result was the same, though - another loss for a team whose tumultuous offseason has spilled over into a winless start.
This time Garrett Hartley missed a field goal in a wild ending at Lambeau Field, where the Saints (0-4) blew a fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Green Bay Packers 28-27 on Sunday.
After taking advantage of six turnovers to beat the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Diego Chargers turned their attention to former teammate Drew Brees and the winless New Orleans Saints.
The Chargers (3-1) will travel to face the Saints (0-4) on Sunday night.
With only three healthy cornerbacks on the roster, the Chargers are expected to sign free agent Chris Carr. They'll need...
There's nothing more to say about this defense than to sum it up by saying they suck. I hate to be that crass or simplistic, but right now they really don't do anything well. The run defense is porous, the pass defense is shaky at best when they are 100% healthy (which hasn't been often) and the pass rush takes bad to a whole new level. I have a theory that this defense...
Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 4 recap
Predicting the Saints to lose and they did I am now 2-2, though not the way I predicted it. Drew Brees showed up and showed up big but it wasn’t enough. Fantasy owners got huge points off the 446 yards and 3 touchdowns.

When the New Orleans Saints were 0-2 going into a home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, I said that game was as close to a "must win" game as you could possibly get in this early part of the NFL season. Well, the Saints would lose to the Chiefs after blowing a 24-6 lead. Combine that with a heartbreaking 28-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and you have a...
