Curtis Lofton Swings the Momentum

The Dolphins started their drive on the 9 yard line, and were moving the ball extremely well. That was until Lofton stripped Tannehill as he was scrambling. The strip he caused on this play would eventually set up a 7 play, 38 yard drive capped off by a ridiculous Jimmy Graham touchdown. This turnover allowed the Saints to go up 14-3. Curtis Lofton is playing some of his best football right now. Lofton would finish the night 2nd to Malcolm Jenkins in total tackles with 6, and Lofton also had a pass defense.

Jabari’s Interception Lets the Saints Go to Work Again

Greer read this play the entire way. This came with just under 2 minutes to play in the 2nd half, and rather than it be a 14-10 game going into the half with the Dolphins to get the 2nd half kickoff, it became a 21-10 Saints lead. Brees found Darren Sproles for a 13 yard touchdown, and if you saw it at home, you were wondering how that wasn’t a pick six going the other way.

Rob Ryan’s defense also got interceptions from Chris Carr and Will Herring. Tyrunn Walker, Junior Galette, Martez Wilson, and Cam Jordan had sacks on the night.

    It started with our first possession on Offense!!! First of all, it should have been a first down.. It was probably a half of a link?? If that!!! OK.. They didn’t give it to us.. 3rd and half inch and you call a RB around the edge play??? WTF!!! That play starts 4yds behind the LOS!!! QB sneak!!! Bad call… Should have been a TD and that would have started the game differently 7-7.. Then 3 and out and we moved the ball again… It would have been a statement to march down the field on our first possession!!! Then it went down hill after that… Bad spot, but even more.. And bad call by Sherman!!!

    MY FAVORITE COACH OF MY FAVORITE TEAM, THE SAINTS, MUST ADDRESS THE LOSS OF TWO TOUCHDOWNS AND A MAKEABLE FIELD GOAL. I AM PROUD OF THE ENTIRE TEAM, BUT THEY MUST BE TALKED TO AS A TEAM ABOUT HAPPENINGS THAT CAUSES THE LOSS OF SURE POINTS. THERE WILL BE GAMES WHERE IF THIS STUFF HAPPENS WE WILL LOSE BECAUSE OF IT. THE WHOLE TEAM HAS TO GO TO CHICAGO WITH THOSE THREE SCORING LOSSES TURNED OVER AND OVER LIKE AN OVER DONE HAMBURGER PATTY!! WHO DAT SAY WE CAN’T FIX DAT! WHO DAT!!
