WATCH: Drew Brees Throws Milestone Touchdown In Saints’ Overtime Win

Tied at 20 against the Dallas Cowboys, Brees took the second play of overtime and threw an 80 yard...

The Saints beat the Cowboys in spectacular fashion 26-20 in OT

WOW!!! There are endings, and then there are endings. These Saints seem dead set on making sure that each game ends with someone having a heart attack, but bless their hearts they were kind enough to make sure this week it wasn’t us. This was one of those games that had so many subplots and so many different swings to it that it was enjoyable to watch (because we won), but at...

WATCH: Drew Brees Throws 80-Yard Touchdown To C.J. Spiller In OT To Beat Cowboys

Drew Brees probably shouldn't have played Sunday night. Having the night off probably would have done wonders for his sore shoulder and helped him heal so he will not get hurt next week--but he played. It ended up being a historic night for the longtime Saints quarterback. Not only did he throw his 5000th completion, but he ended up becoming the fifth member of the 400 Career Touchdown...

Five things to look for in Cowboys at Saints

Please don’t let the Saints start this season 0-4. I’m loosely on board with getting the best draft pick possible at this point, I’m under no illusion this team has no shot at the playoffs, but at the same time I’m nowhere near ready to be actively rooting for them to lose games either. It’s barely been October a few days for crying out loud! The Cowboys come into New Orleans...

Cowboys want Brandon Weeden to attempt longer passes

Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden isn’t having a problem completing short passes. It’s the longer passes that are missing right now.

Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints: 2015 Week 4 NFL Pick

They are favored here again at home, though only by 3.5 points, against a Dallas team that is so banged up right now and just lost pretty easily at home to an average at best Atlanta...

The New Orleans Saints made the biggest trade of the offseason, jettisoning Jimmy Graham off to Seattle in exchange for center Max Unger, but it looks like they may be having a little buyer’s remorse.

Have the Seahawks forgotten about Jimmy Graham?

Question: If you had Jimmy Graham, what would you do? Hand the football off to him. Use him primarily as a blocker. Throw him the damn football. If you chose option one, it’d still make more sense than option two—the choice Seattle has made through the first two weeks of the NFL season. So far, Graham has accumulated 10 targets, 7 receptions, 62 yards, and 1 TD. Care...
