Saints Lose To Ravens, 34-27

The Baltimore Ravens came into New Orleans on Monday night and became the third team in a row to beat the Saints at home.

The final score: 34-27.

It’s the first time in 13 years the Saints have lost three straight in the Superdome.

New Orleans managed to take a lead into the half, but the Ravens tied it up with a field goal… and then Drew Brees threw a pick-6 (an interception returned for a touchdown) right to Baltimore safety Will Hill.

Opposing teams have not missed a field goal against the Saints all year.

The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is closed on Mondays.

It’s a day to dust off from the press of thousands — to replace lightbulbs, install equipment and polish off inquisitive little nose prints on both sides of the glass.

And sometimes, thanks to Easter Seals Louisiana and a special program at the Aquarium, the darkened halls are also filled with soft laughter, from throats that haven’t had occasion to laugh as much as most.

The Superdome was almost impossibly loud on Sunday with the sound of 73,129 football fans screaming their hearts out.

That is, when the crowd wasn’t being drowned out by a ear-splitting siren sound piped through the Dome PA system.

The Saints lost the game to the San Francisco 49ers, 27-24. The Saints went down 14-0 early, climbed back to take the lead, and then let San Francisco tie it up with 44 seconds left in regulation.
