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.
To keep a better eye on head injuries in the past, the LSU football team has had concussion detectors installed in players’ helmets. This season, LSU became the first team in the NCAA to try high-tech mouth guards to measure hits.

Anthony Davis is an honest-to-goodness superstar. And he is only getting better.
Davis, now in his third year, wowed the Smoothie King Center crowd Tuesday night with another masterful performance. He was just shy of a rare triple-double — that’s double-digits in three separate categories: 26 points, 17 rebounds and 9 blocked shots. He’s the first player to record those numbers in any NBA game since Dwight Howard in 2008.
The Saints managed to eke out their second win of the season in the Superdome on Sunday, besting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in overtime, 37-31.
The Saints have now won 10 straight in the Superdome. It was a less-than-impressive victory, punctuated by Drew Brees interceptions, an inability to capitalize on Tampa Bay penalties — and an overly loud train noise piped in over the Dome PA system that caused an uproar on social media and local talk radio.
