A Rams loss would give the Saints room to breathe in their quest for home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but its still too soon for any NFC team to clinch that honor this week.With the same record as the Saints, the Rams would also benefit from a Bears loss. Its possible both the Saints and Rams could secure a first-round bye this week.Click here for playoff scenarios for Week 15 of the NFL. Tags: New Orleans Saints NFC Playoffs Comments

New Orleans on pace to have fewest murders since 1971

There were 151 murders in 2017 by the same date, and 169 in 2016 by Dec. 15, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reported .If the current pace of murders continues, the city will end 2018 with 143 murders a 47-year low. According to data from the City of New Orleans, the last time there were fewer than 150 murders was in 1971, when New Orleans had 116 murder victims.Despite a potential drop in the murder count, if New Orleans continues the pace and ends the year with 143 murders, the city would still remain on a list of U.S. cities with the highest number of murders per capita. Ending the year with 143 murders would make New Orleans murder rate higher than Chicagos in 2017, but lower than the rates of Baltimore, Detroit and Birmingham, Alabama, last year.New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison attributed the reduction in murders the second-straight year the number of murders in a year has decreased to the departments embrace of technology.Harrison said new tools have made the department more efficient and helped them go after serial offenders using data to guide deployment strategies. When officers solve crimes committed by people who are shown by internal data to be responsible for much of the citys violence, it helps prevent future crimes by removing repeat offenders from the streets, Harrison said. Arresting those suspects, he added, sends a deterrent message to other would-be criminals, that NOPD has the capacity to find and capture them.The Real Time Crime Center, where footage from the citys more than 300 crime cameras is stored, has helped police make arrests and compile solid cases against many suspected violent offenders, Harrison added. Technology initiatives implemented in recent years, such as allowing some offenses to be reported online and over the phone, account for about 10 to 15 percent of all reports taken. That frees up manpower, police spokesman Andy Cunningham said.The city of New Orleans, led by our mayor and certainly me, the chief, were all committed to making sure we have a very effective and efficient police department, Harrison said. Every opportunity we can find to make improvements for effectiveness and efficiency, were going to do that.Another factor helping police apprehend suspected violent offenders is cooperation from the public, the superintendent said. He attributed improved cooperation to a steady increase in public trust, which had been shattered by decades of civil rights abuses punctuated by Hurricane Katrina-era shootings of unarmed residents by officers.

Tulane defeats ULL in Auto Nation Cure Bowl

AP Darius Bradwell rushed for a career-best 150 yards and two touchdowns to lead Tulane to its first postseason victory in 16 years, a 41-24 win over intrastate rival Louisiana-Lafayette in the Cure Bowl on Saturday.You want highlights We got highlightsCheck out the best plays from todays victory BowlWave pic.twitter.com/uklRgqqSaN Tulane Football GreenWaveFB December 15, 2018 Justin McMillan improved to 5-1 as the Green Waves starting quarterback, tossing a first-quarter TD pass to Terren Encalade and running for a late score while accounting for 217 yards total offense 145 passing and 72 rushing.Bradwell scored on runs of 15 and 4 yards while setting bowl records for rushing attempts 35 and yards for Tulane 7-6, which won a bowl game for the first time since the 2002 Hawaii Bowl.The Green Wave also got a rushing TD from Amare Jones and outgained the Ragin Cajuns 337 yards to 84 on the ground.Lousiana-Lafayette 7-7 rallied from a 24-7 deficit to pull within three points on Jarrod Jacksons 15-yard TD reception with just over 10 minutes remaining.McMillan put the game away, leading a 75-yard drive Bradwell finished with his second TD and later scoring himself on a 16-yard run that put Tulane up 41-24.Andre Nunez completed 8 of 17 passes for 136 yards and one TD, however Louisiana-Lafayettes productive running tandem of Trey Ragas and Elijah Mitchell were not a factor after falling behind early.Tulane won four of five down the stretch in the regular season to not only qualify for its first bowl berth in five years, but also finished with a winning record 5-3 in conference play for the first time since 2014.McMillan was one of the keys, providing consistent quarterback play while throwing for more than 1,100 yards and accounting for 13 touchdowns nine passing and four rushing.The graduate transfer from LSU, where he appeared on only two games from 2015-17, was 11 of 18 passing with one interception Saturday.THE TAKEAWAYLouisiana-Lafayette: Ragas rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and Mitchell fell just shy of 1,000 this season, however neither was a factor after the Ragin Cajuns fell behind by double-digits. Ragas was limited to 40 yards on 10 carries, and Mitchell had 26 yards on six attempts and scored on a 3-yard run in the third quarter.Tulane: The Green Wave rushed for 483 yards and finished with a Cure Bowl-record and season-best 28 first downs. Bradwell topped 100 yards for the third time, finishing the season with 1,134 yards and 11 rushing TDs.UP NEXTLouisiana-Lafayette: Nunez is a senior, however Ragas, Mitchell and Calas are all underclassmen for the Ragin Cajuns, who moving forward have a solid foundation to build on Napier, who inherited a team that went 5-7 last season.Tulane: McMillan has a year of eligibility remaining, as do Bradwell and Corey Dauphine, who combined for 1,928 yards and 18 TDs rushing. The Green Wave have never made bowl appearances in consecutive seasons, but will enter 2019 with heightened expectations after their strong finish.
