Brees tosses 2 TDs as Saints shut out Dolphins in London

Streif, who was active for the game despite missing most of the week's practice with a knee problem, picked up the injury when a Dolphins defender fell on his legs.

The Saints aren't as good as they looked last week and the Dolphins aren't as bad.

But while wide receiver Kenny Stills again wore a garment in support of out-of-work former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick, Ajayi was decked in a hoodie before the game with New Orleans Saints. Scoring just six points in two weeks against the New York Jets and Saints-two teams hardly renowned for their defense coming into the season-is a major concern and will raise questions about the job security of Cutler.

London-born Jay Ajayi will play in his hometown for the first time, giving Brits a chance to cheer the Dolphins running back who had a breakout season in 2016. "Offensively, we sustained drives". He was also sacked four times.

The Saints (1-2) snapped their two-game losing streak with a victory over Carolina last week.

Rookie Alvin Kamara's role as a playmaker for the Saints (2-2) only figures to increase after he finished Sunday with a touchdown and 119 all-purpose yards (71 receiving, 25 rushing, 23 returning). "We need to get back to what we know we can do". "I've embraced (the attention) because at the end of the day I've got a lot of pressure on myself to be successful".

Given the billion dollar relationship between the National Football League and its broadcast partners (which include every major television broadcaster CBS, Disney/ABC/ESPN and Fox Broadcasting), one can reasonably wonder what discussions went on behind the scenes in trying to take some air out of this controversy, which many see puts the National Football League in a tough position (which is ostensibly the hallmark of any effective protest, by the way).

Saints owner Tom Benson expanded on their decision in a statement where he explained he saw standing for the anthem as a way of honouring U.S. military. "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".

Now retired, Kreutz, like many of us, isn't impressed by what we're seeing from Cutler. The Saints have a bye before playing its next game on October 15 against the visiting Detroit Lions.
