Saints Prepare for Browns

Saints Prepare for Browns

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The New Orleans Saints will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns on Sunday.

New Orleans is looking to avoid their first 0-2 start since the 2007 season and the Browns come into the losing their last eight in a row.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 29 for 42 with 333 yard with a touchdown and an interception in the 37-34 loss to Atlanta last week.

“We don’t feel like it’s doomsday, but there is a sense of urgency to get better,” Brees said this week.

“Biggest thing on the road is communication,” Brees continued.  “I feel like we’ve got a pretty good system when it comes to that, but it’s always a challenge.”

Cleveland last won their home opener in 2004 and quarterback Brian Hoyer knows the Saints defense will be tough to beat.

“For me, I try to get rid of the ball relatively quick,” Hoyer said of the Saints defense.  “I think it has to do with your preparation and knowing what the defense is trying to do. Against a team that is coached by Rob Ryan, sometimes that’s hard because he can try to confuse you, so you really have to be on top of your game preparation and see as many looks as you can and then try to take that to the field.”

Bryant’s Kick KO’s Saints in OT

Bryant’s Kick KO’s Saints in OT

Leon Halip/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — Matt Bryant’s 52 yard field goal 1:43 into overtime clinched the Atlanta Falcons 37-34 victory over their division rival New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The Saints had the ball first in overtime, but receiver Marques Colston fumbled the ball, allowing the Falcons the chance to win on a field goal.

Before overtime, it was the Matt Ryan show: the Falcons quarterback threw for a franchise-record 448 yards and three touchdowns in the win.

“He’s played a lot of games, made a lot of plays for us,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “But I was really impressed with his ability to extend some plays by moving around in the pocket. And he was very, very accurate. When you have (568 yards) of total offense and 448 through the air, your quarterback is playing well.”

Julio Jones was on the receiving end of many of Ryan’s passes. After missing most of last season with a broken foot, Jones returned to the field catching seven balls for 116 yards.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 29 of 42 passes for 333 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
