Saints Stomped by Giants in New York, 52-27

The Saints dropped their third straight game to the New York Giants, 52-27 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The Saints’ turnover woes continued, and the Giants capitalized on early fumbles by Marques Colston and Jed Collins, and two second-half interceptions by Drew Brees. But the Saints defense struck first when defensive back Elbert Mack intercepted Eli Manning for a 73-yard touchdown return early in the first quarter.

The Saints fell short last night against archrival Atlanta, 23-13 in the Georgia Dome in front of a sell-out crowd and a national television audience.

New Orleans has dominated the Falcons over the past seven seasons, winning eleven out of their last 13 meetings before yesterday, but couldn’t overcome one of the worst games of quarterback Drew Brees’ career.

The San Francisco 49ers dealt the New Orleans Saints a serious blow to their playoff hopes, defeating them 31-21 Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Despite an improved defensive effort, the Saints were unable to overcome a couple of big plays and offensive miscues.

The Saints’ defense yielded a season-low 375 yards to the 49ers offense but couldn’t overcome a pair of crucial interceptions by Drew Brees.

Brees was 26 of 41 for 267 yards and three touchdowns, but he threw two interceptions which were returned for touchdowns.

Saints Beat Philadelphia Eagles 28-13

Chris Ivory celebrates at the end of a 22-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Ivory carried 10 times for a team-best 48 yards in his first game this season.
Michael C. Hebert New Orleans Saints

The Saints beat the Philadelphia Eagles 28-13 at the Superdome, showing flashes of their old brilliance.

“Bend but don’t break,” could have been the mantra for the historically bad New Orleans Saints defense during a game that featured some defensive miscues and a few spectacular plays by the Eagles’ skill position players — most notably a 77-yard bomb from Michael Vick to DeSean Jackson in the third quarter.

Country music's rising star returns to Louisiana

Hunter Hayes knows a thing or two about hurricanes.

The south Louisiana native has seen his share of storms and even named his breakout country music single "Storm Warning" — about a beautiful girl he compares to a "Cat 5" hurricane.

On Friday, the accordion-playing, harmonica-blowing singer returns to Louisiana as the area cleans up from Hurricane Isaac for a concert benefiting a New Orleans hospital. He's also scheduled to sing the national anthem at the New Orleans Saints football game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday — his 21st birthday.
