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 Food-Minded Saints Fan

Who dat say dey gonna make a game day feast?
Ian McNulty

For players and coaches, a football game starts long before kickoff. The same holds true for the food-minded Saints fan. For such fans, it starts with choosing what to cook and devoting the hands-on work to ensure a victorious feast.

It's really no wonder. Take the enthusiasm of the Who Dat Nation, add south Louisiana's endemic passion for food and the results are predictably over the top.

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.

The New Orleans Pelicans kicked off the NBA season with a 101-84 win over the visiting Orlando Magic.

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.

WHEW DAT: Saints Eke Out Overtime Win

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.
