New Orleans Saints Eased To 20-0 Win Over Miami Dolphins

Drew Brees passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 20-0 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London.

Strief hurt again: Saints right tackle Zach Strief left the field with a knee injury again in the second half after he just returned this week from a sprained MCL. "We dialed it up and ran it".

The Dolphins only arrived in London on Friday morning, unlike the Saints (1-2) who have spent the whole week in Britain as a way of getting adjusted to the time difference.

The Dolphins have had a great deal of adversity to overcome in the young season, but they must find a way to overcome the Saints and get a win to reinvigorate their team. The team is 1-2 as a result. "The first drive was clean but after that the penalties against us slowed us down". Running the football will allow the Dolphins to control the clock and give Jay Cutler better windows in the passing game.

Jay Cutler completed 20 of 28 passes for 164 yards without a touchdown and an interception for the Dolphins (1-2), who have dropped two straight. Kamara is, and as the Saints start to roll through the season don't be surprised to see more Kamara and a whole lot less of Adrian Peterson.

"We need to have some pride in ourselves and have some respect for ourselves and put some points on the board". We're not doing that.


Brees' first throw on three of the four first half drives went to Thomas, who had the size and positional awareness to out-muscle the Dolphins corners on nearly any route. Alvin Kamara had a breakout performance, catching 10 passes for 71 yards and a score, while Michael Thomas added eight receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. They now average 24.3 points and 385.7 yards per game. Saints OLB Alex Anzalone (shoulder) was injured in the first quarter and did not return.

Earlier, Trump had posted on Twitter: "Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem".

"This was all that mattered for the trip, this game on Sunday", Ajayi said.

Saints defense shows teeth " I don't know when we last pitched a shutout.

It took three weeks, but the Dolphins are the worst team in the NFL. Saints coach Sean Payton was not pleased. "I'm in a good mood".

The entire New Orleans Saints team took a knee before the United States national anthem was played at Wembley Stadium today only to stand up together when it was sung. "I saw it", Crawley said, dismissively.
