Saints will kneel before anthem, then stand for it

Sunday, 01 Oct, 2017

But the Dolphins offensive line, that was so good at opening up holes past year, struggled all day to create space for Ajayi and Kenyan Drake, who both made tacklers miss for their biggest gains of the day. Dolphins DE Cameron Wake had sack last week. He's obviously a great element to what our offense can do, so I'm sure there will be a package of stuff. The Dolphins were 0-2 a year ago when Ajayi had less than 19 touches and 7-1 when he had more. In addition to mileage already logged in 2017, the team no longer has a bye week as a result of their first game of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers being moved to Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma.

"I can't do that right now", Cutler said. Drew Brees is one of the best in the game and Miami will need to lower that league-worst average. In three games we haven't scored enough points.

"I think it's a good combination of showing unity and also paying tribute to the actual reason why everybody's taking a knee". The Dolphins hold a 6-5 edge in the all time series. The Saints have won their last two against Miami and the two have hit the over in four of their last five encounters. (4.72) since 2016. WR Kenny Stills had 95 catches for 1,572 yards and 8 TDs in 2 seasons with New Orleans (2013-14). Maxwell and Howard have had a tough time against the Chargers and Jets, who don't have weapons to match the Saints.

That was fewer than the six Dolphins who took a knee last weekend after the president suggested that players who did so should be fired.

Saints coach Sean Payton said there was no influence from Saints ownership on the players' decision. Miami is 1-2 in London. A report by Adam Schefter states that Ajayi will play in the London game. Both offensively and defensively, Miami appeared lost at times at MetLife Stadium. If they stop the run, it will force the Saints to become one dimensional and that would give Drew Brees less chances to target the Miami secondary. However, they are giving up 290 passing yards per contest.

Kuhn and Langford were released last week as part of injury-related roster juggling. They later re-signed Maulet to the practice sqaud. The more opportunities Miami gets with the ball, the likelier this becomes a shootout and New Orleans does not want that.

I will leave the counting - and the subsequent narrative -to others.

Earlier this week, a Mardi Gras krewe in Slidell, Louisiana, announced that it had rescinded its offer for Vaccaro and Saints defensive end Alex Okafor to serve as grand marshals in its parade. Also returning on a limited basis was starting right tackle Zach Strief, who sprained his knee in the season opener at Minnesota on September 11. LB Nate Stupar was a limited participant because of a hamstring injury. Their only victory being 31-13 against the Carolina Panthers.
