Saints clinch NFC South title

TAMPA, Fla. — There were two sides to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday — the one who played before Taysom Hill’s blocked punt in the third quarter of a 28-14 win, and the one who played after.

Everything that happened before Hill changed the tide of the game pointed to the Saints clearly having lost what made them seem so special earlier this year. For the second straight week, their offense could best be described as moribund. Before Hill stormed through the line and made a leaping block of a Bryan Anger punt, New Orleans had five rushing yards and three points to its name.

Saints-Cowboys playoff rematch? Here’s how it could happen

Cameron Jordan said it. He wants a rematch. You can be sure anybody else associated with the New Orleans Saints would relish the chance.

If it happens, it will likely be in the playoffs and in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. There, the Saints should be considered strong favorites to avenge the 13-10 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys that bumped the Saints from the top spot in the NFC playoff picture.

However, there’s a long way to go.

How soon could the Saints clinch the NFC South title?

By this time next week, the New Orleans Saints could call themselves NFC South champions again.

The Carolina Panthers’ loss Sunday (Nov. 25) against the Seattle Seahawks put the Saints (10-1) four games ahead of the second-place Panthers (6-5) in the NFC South standings with five games to play.

So, if the Saints win Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys, the Saints could be in position to clinch the division title three days later. For that to happen, the Panthers must lose next Sunday (Dec. 2) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers .

Saints defense stands strong in Thanksgiving win vs Falcons

One last desperate Atlanta gasp remained when Calvin Ridley caught a crossing pattern deep in New Orleans Saints territory and raced toward the goal line.

The rookie receiver had a lead on Marshon Lattimore. Another two or three steps, and he would have cut a three-score Saints lead to two and maybe things might have been interesting on Thanksgiving night.

Instead, Lattimore did the thing the Saints did all night to the Falcons. They let them experience hope, and then ripped it right out of their hands. He lunged for Ridley, tore the ball out of his hands and watched as teammate Eli Apple pounced on it.

Nine is divine: Saints throttle the defending champion Eagles for ninth straight win

There was a moment in the first half when it looked like the Eagles might be about to make a game of it with the New Orleans Saints.

After a miserable start that put them in a 17-0 hole — gaining just 15 net yards on its first three drives — Philadelphia responded by putting together its first touchdown drive of the game and following that up by forcing a Saints three and out. They took the ball back and started marching downfield against the New Orleans defense.
