New Orleans Saints Still Undefeated, Beat Bears In Chicago 26-18

The New Orleans Saints are undefeated, winning their fifth game in a 26-18 victory over the Bears in Chicago.

The Saints hadn’t won a game at Soldier Field since Oct. 8, 2000. Their last game in Chicago — the 2008 NFC Championship game — ended in a bitter overtime loss.

But this is 2013. The Saints’ lauded offense is firing on all cylinders, and their defense is now seen as one of the top secondaries in the league.

New Orleans Saints Thrash Visiting Miami Dolphins In 38-17 Monday Night Victory

It was another record-setting night for Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints offense, as they dispatched the visiting Miami Dolphins 38-17 in the Superdome.

 

The Saints made it look easy, dominating the Miami Dolphins on both sides of the ball in their ninth straight Monday Night Football victory.

Darren Sproles and Jimmy Graham combined for four touchdowns, and the Saints’ now-stellar defense forced three interceptions and a fumble out of Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

New Orleans Saints Overcome First Half Woes In 31-7 Win Over Arizona Cardinals

The New Orleans Saints are still undefeated, after their 31-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday at home in the Superdome.

The Arizona Cardinals spent five minutes and forty-seven seconds marching down the field on the first possession of the game.

It was the only time they would score.

In a dramatic turnaround from last season, it was the Saints young defense who stood up to make the big plays, keeping Arizona off the field and giving quarterback Drew Brees and company the space to work.

Dramatic Last-Moment Field Goal Seals Saints Victory Over Tampa Bay, 16-14

Garrett Hartley’s game-clinching 27-yard field goal with five seconds left capped a wild Sunday night in Tampa Bay and sent the New Orleans Saints home with a win over the Buccaneers, 16-14.

It took the Saints just over a minute to drive 54 yards back down the field, after Tampa Bay’s own missed field goal, to set Hartley up to make the kick. The team was down by one, thanks to an earlier missed kick, and the points they gave back trying and failing to score a one-yard touchdown with just seconds to go in the first half.

Last-Minute Heroics Help The Saints Top Atlanta, 23-17

Hundreds of newspapers dot the seats after the Saints beat the Atlanta Falcons, 23-17. Each seat in the Superdome had a special edition of the Advocate placed on it before the game.

The New Orleans Saints beat the Atlanta Falcons at home in the Superdome Sunday afternoon, in a rollicking game that came down to the wire, as many games between these two rivals often do.

The Falcons offense, taking advantage of an invigorated but still-shaky Saints secondary, marched down the field with time expiring, but rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro tipped Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan’s fourth-down bullet with less than a minute to play, and Roman Harper intercepted it in the end zone.

After more than a month of training camp and exhibition games, the Saints are finally just about ready for the regular season.

They wrapped up the preseason last night in Miami, and now they’ve got some tough choices to make.

The team must pare its roster down to 53 players by Saturday evening, and the front office will have to show many young and promising players the door.

Saints Remain Undefeated (In Preseason) With 31-23 Victory Over Houston

The third week of the NFL preseason is generally considered a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

And with that in mind, the Saints’ performance Sunday evening — a 31-23 victory over the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium — was mostly positive.

Quarterback Drew Brees made quick work of the Texans’ defense, compiling 104 yards and a touchdown on four completions.

Saints Cruise To Second Preseason Victory

It’s just two games into their preseason schedule, but the New Orleans Saints appear to be in mid-season form.

Saints starters on both sides of the ball played almost the entire first half in a 28-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders Friday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

With the wide receiver corps still taking shape, quarterback Drew Brees involved several of his wide-outs early and often in the first half game plan.
