Road-weary Dolphins face Saints in London

02 October 2017

The London crowd finally saw its first touchdown during an 11-play, 77-yard series which ended in Saints quarterback Drew Brees rolling out to his right and connecting with Michael Thomas for a three-yard touchdown.

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.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross supported his players who chose to kneel a year ago and said this week he will continue to do so this season.

The Dolphins are allowing an average of 8.6 yards on passes this season and that is a scary number considering the opposing quarterback in this one.

"I don't blame the guys for feeling like they needed to do something as a reaction", Brees said. More importantly, the Saints evened their record at 2-2 and the team has yet to turn over the football in four games this season. Miami (1-2) finished with 186 total yards - its fewest since its last shutout, a 19-0 loss at Buffalo on December 22, 2013. And two touchdowns - by Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara - made the game safe. "Offensively, we sustained drives".

Yet there were plenty of emojis already available for the feelings he was displaying during an afternoon were he rushed for just 46 yards from 12 carries.

"On offense, we need to have some pride in ourselves, some respect for ourselves", Ajayi said.

The Black and Gold defense sacked Cutler three times on the afternoon.

"We gotta get back to the drawing board".

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

There rightly remains a healthy degree of scepticism about whether a full-time London NFL team is viable.

Although coach Sean Payton praised Kamara as an "explosive player", he also said the team has yet to find a way how to incorporate him. "Being a good player and being from London, being the only skill player right now as well, has kind of made me the face nearly of NFL UK".

The president tweeted on Saturday night, "Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem".

Also, two members of the Detroit Lions - Steve Longa and Jalen Reeves-Maybin - knelt during the anthem, with Tahir Whitehead standing between them.
