The Saints were in a world of trouble, down 17-7 in the fourth quarter to the Baltimore Ravens. But, even against the leagues leader in total defense, and scoring defense, the hill was not too high to climb. New Orleans scored 17 consecutive points to take the lead, and held on for a 24-23 win when Ravens kicker Justin Tucker missed an extra point attempt with 28 seconds remaining. It was the first missed PAT of Tuckers career. The Saints

Seth Dunlap's NFL Power 12 rankings, Week 8
10/23/2018 8:05pm

USA TODAY Sports Seth Dunlaps NFL Power 12 rankings, Week 8: Searching for playoff clarity The Vikings are looking like a contender againOctober 23, 2018 Seth Dunlap functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowIf theres such a thing as the dog days of the NFL season, were entering it now. Wear and tear on bodies now becomes a factor, especially for those teams who havent had their bye week yet. The league is also into the part of the season where a whole mess of teams is clogged up near .500, and handicapping the playoff races should be difficult.Well, the next two weeks will offer everybody much more clarity on how the NFC is going to shake out at the top, at least. New Orleans 5-1 travels to Minnesota 4-2-1, a place where they lost twice last season, including the playoff stunner. The Saints then face the Rams 7-0 at home in the Superdome.Those three teams look like theyll be in a three way battle for the top two seeds, with the Rams getting an opportunity to all but wrap up the race for the 1 overall seed into the playoffs, and home field advantage, well before fans even get to pick out their Thanksgiving turkeys.The Wild Card races in each conference arent as clearly defined. The Panthers took a step towards the playoffs with a huge road win against the Eagles. Meanwhile, the Steelers had one heck of a week and they didnt even play.On to the rankings for Week 8. Again, these are the dozen teams Im currently predicting to make the playoffs. This isnt a list of what I think are the 12 best teams in football. Check out the unlimited barrage of those regular power rankings elsewhere for that.NFL Power 12 - Week 71. Los Angeles Rams 7-0 LW-1: The Rams continue to beat up on NFL bottom feeders, having now played three of the four one-loss teams in the league. Additionally, only two of the Rams seven opponents have a winning record Chargers 5-2 and Vikings 4-2-1 and the Rams faced both at home. That lighter-than-expected slate has made them prohibitive favorites to get home field advantage in the NFC. Last week: W 39-10 SF, This week: vs. GB2. New Orleans Saints 5-1 LW-2: Call it an escape act, but in reality the Saints dominated a team many labeled as a Super Bowl contender for 56 minutes on Sunday. The problem for New Orleans continues to be the last two minutes of the half, where the Saints allowed a touchdown twice, one in each half, to the Ravens. Championship teams almost always have fortune favor them at points throughout the season, and nobody on Airline Drive is ready to give Justin Tucker a mulligan. Last week: W 24-23 BAL, This week: MIN3.New England Patriots 5-2 LW-3: The Patriots have suddenly reeled off four consecutive wins, and are currently positioned as the 2 seed in the AFC. Plus, they have the tiebreaker over top seeded Kansas City, which means the Patriots need to only finish in a tie with the Chiefs to steal home field advantage in the playoffs. Last week: W 38-31 CHI, This week: BUF4. Kansas City Chiefs 6-1 LW-4: Everybody keeps expecting the Chiefs season to revert towards pre-season expectations. Theyre still getting outgained by nearly 45 yards per game by their opponents. Yet they just keep winning. Anybody who has actually watched Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Kareem Hunt in this Andy Reid offense has seen how terrifying thats going to be for any opponent. Its hard to not see them playing until at least mid-January. Last week: W 45-10 vs. CIN, This week: vs. DEN5.Minnesota Vikings 4-2-1 LW-5 Dont look now, but the Vikings are back on top of the NFC Northand theyve got an offense that can put up big points in any given game. Kirk Cousins is creeping towards MVP contention with 2,162 yards, 14 touchdowns, and a 70 completion rate. Theyll face the Saints for the third time in just over a calendar-year with a chance to close the gap on a possible top-two seed and a first round playoff bye. Last week: W 37-17 NYJ, This week: vs. NOKirk Cousins dances exactly how you thought he Laces Out LacesOutShow October 14, 2018 6. Los Angeles Chargers 5-2 LW-8: The debate over the NFLs best division is being won early by the AFC West. The Chiefs and Chargers are both in the top-six of our rankings this week, with the Chargers winning their fourth consecutive game after Tennessee failed to convert a two-point conversion that would have likely won it for the Titans. Philip Rivers is now over 2,000 yards passing for the season, with 17 touchdowns and 117.8 QB rating. Last week: W 20-19 vs. TEN London, This week: BYE7. Baltimore Ravens 4-3 LW-7: While you could say the Ravens were close to beating one of the NFLs best teams, you could also say they were relatively close to also being blown out at home -- end of half heroics aside. Critical week for Baltimore as they try to avoid slipping back to .500 when they travel to Carolina on Sunday. Last week: L 24-23 vs. NO, This week: CAR8. Washington 4-2 LW-10: Improbably, Washington are now favorites to win the NFC East after most experts, including yours truly, thought they would be division bottom feeders. Theres been a lot of talk around what John Gruden is doing in Oakland, but its his brother, Jay Gruden, who deserves the spotlight after a so-far yeomans job getting Washington back to playoff-contender status. The Washington defense has allowed over 20 points only once this season, and are holding opponents to just over 14 points in their wins. That, coupled with the always-solid play from QB Alex Smith, makes them a really tough out every single week. Last week: W 20-17 vs. DAL, This week: NYG9. Pittsburgh Steelers 3-2-1 LW-9: The Steelers couldnt have asked for a much better bye week, as they saw both teams in front of them in the AFC North, Baltimore and Cincinnati, lose. That means the Steelers are improbably back in the drivers seat in the division. Theyre also rested and ready to face a now-struggling Browns team. Last Week: BYE, This week: vs. CLE10. CarolinaPanthers 4-2 LW-UR: If the Panthers make the playoffs this season, circle last weeks win on the road in Philadelphia as a big reason why. Quarterback Cam Newton is also playing as efficiently as he has since his MVP season, with a 65.6 completion rate and 11 touchdowns to only four interceptions. Their schedule lightens up a bit on the back end, but their tough slog continues against the Ravens this week. Last week: W 21-17 PHI, This week: vs. BAL11.Houston Texans 4-3 LW-UR: The Texans started the season with three straight losses, but have since emerged with four straight win, placing themselves as tenuous favorites in the AFC South. The Houston defense hasnt allowed an opponent to score more than 16 points this month, and they now have very winnable games at home against the Dolphins and in Denver against struggling offenses. Last week: W 20-7 JAX, This week: vs. MIA12. Philadelphia Eagles 3-4 LW-6: The Eagles have now lost three of their past four games, all of which theyve had Carson Wentz at quarterback. Wentz hasnt played poorly 10 TDs, 1 INT, 70.8 cmp which speaks to the other issues across this offense. They havent eclipsed 23 points in any of their losses this season. Is it time to stop expecting the Eagles to return to championship form They edge out the Seahawks on this list for the NFCs final Wild Card spot because Im one of those suckers that still believes they will.

Bobby Hebert: New Saint Eli won't be bad Apple in Big Easy
10/23/2018 5:21pm

Bobby Hebert: New Saint Eli wont be bad Apple in Big Easy Kim Klement - USA TODAY Sports October 23, 2018 Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowThe Saints front office pulled the trigger Tuesday on acquiring a new coverman for the defense just not the cornerback who had been the center of speculation for the better part of a week. With the Arizona Cardinals still reticent to deal Patrick Peterson, the Saints traded for third-year corner Eli Apple, transplanting him from the Big Apple to the Big Easy for a pair of draft picks a 2019 fourth-rounder and a 2020 seventh-rounder.Apple was a 2016 first-round pick by the G-Men who had some disagreements with the team off-the-field last season, but as WWL Radios Bobby Hebert pointed out on Sports Talk, Apple will be among a support system of familiar faces in New Orleans. Apple played his college ball at Ohio State, where he teamed with Saints defenders Marshon Lattimore and Vonn Bell in the Buckeye secondary.Hell be coming here with some Ohio State teammates hes familiar with, so I think that comes into play, Hebert said. Youre basically getting a first-round talent. You look at his measurable, thats what theyre looking for. 61 basically 200-pound cornerback. Has a lot of ability.Hebert went on to say that the past couple of years worth of roster decisions has earned the Saints staff some leeway to let this move play out.I would still say trust Sean Payton, Hebert said. I think Sean would really pay attention and he would think Eli Apple could help us.The hope, of course, is hell shore up the Fleur De Lis Ds lagging pass coverage. The Saints hit the road for the fourth time in five games this Sunday night to face the Vikings in Minneapolis. Categories: Saints Tags: Apple Saints Giants NFL Trade Comments

Kristian: Making sense of the Saints trade for Eli Apple

Kristian: Making sense of the Saints trade for Eli Apple USA TODAY Sports October 23, 2018 Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowThe Saints and the Who Dat Nation wanted CB Patrick Peterson from the Arizona Cardinals. The owner of the Cardinals refused to trade their cornerstone piece of the franchise. So, the Saints pulled off the trade with the New York Giants landing CB Eli Apple.TheSaints recognized the cornerback room needed an upgrade opposite of Marshon Lattimore. Now, the Saints have four defensive backs from Ohio State currently on the roster.Apple comes to New Orleans with some baggage. Giants defensive team captain Landon Collins called him a cancer last year, thenhe was suspended by the team last year for one game for conduct detrimental to the team. That sounds like the Saints are getting pun intended a bad apple. Maybe hes been on a bad team for most of his career. Bad Apple,or bad teamI think the change in scenery is going to prove that Apples behavior was more about a toxic New York Giants organization than Eli being a cancer, or a problem, in the locker room. Apple instantly provides an upgrade over Ken Crawley and P.J Williams opposite of Lattimore. No, hes not Patrick Peterson, but above average to great cornerbacks dont grow on trees. The Saints know they have a shot to win it all this year, but the aforementioned Williams and Crawley hurt the teams chances of doing so if they werefull time starters.Hes not a ball hawk, but opposing quarterbacks dont have a very high QB rating when throwing his way. Hes going to be an upgrade, and you have to do something if youre the Saints to improve in that area, explained the voice of the Saints Zach Strief.For the compensation, the Saints basically got a first round talent in the fourth round with the trade for Apple. Eli was picked by the Giants in the first round in 2016. Apple remains under his rookie contract through next season, and has a team option in 2020. If you look inside the numbers as to why the Saints pulled the trigger on this deal it will make sense. The Saints rank 28thin passing yards allowed per game at 293.7. Dennis Allens defense has allowed eight passing plays of 42 or more yards which is tied for the most in the league.Here is why the risk of Eli Apple will work. First, hes got seven Ohio State players on the Saints roster that he can lean on. Second, the Saints locker room is vastly different from the Giants. Thirdly, there is an expectation in the Saints organization, and they will make that expectation abundantly clear when Eli arrives.Also, the Saints are winning Ill bet hell enjoy that a lot more than the 1-6 record he was a part of 24 hours ago.

They just didnt trade for the guy most expectedFormer top-10 draft pick Eli Apple is on his way to New Orleans after the Saints sent two draft picks -- a fourth round pick this year, and a seventh round pick in 2020 -- to the New York Giants in a mid season deal.That said, at first glance I dont mind the move for Apple. A relatively low risk, high reward move for the Saints.4th round picks are much more valuable than the casual fan thinks, but thats worth a shot at getting better now. Seth Dunlap sethdunlap October 23, 2018 While Applehasnt lived up to the expectationssurrounding him on draft day, the move represents a relatively low risk, high reward move by the Saints, who were looking to bolster their secondary in a season where they have legitimate Super Bowl aspirations.You gave up a 4th rounder this year and a 7th next year, so not a terrible price, said Deuce McAllister, the franchises all-time leading rusher and current radio color analyst on game days. The Saints wanted Patrick Peterson, but they werent interested or the Saints didnt have enough assets to entice them. They needed a body, so its not surprising.Indeed, the Saints had been rumored to be in pursuit of Peterson, a former All-Pro cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals, however the asking price was reportedly included a future first round draft pick. Thatprice was apparently too steep forNew Orleans who insteadget a player with high upside, and who still has over two seasons of possible team control remaining on his contract.Apple isa top 10 pick. Hes had an up and down career. Hopefully a change of scenery will help him, McAllister said. I havent seen him enough to know if hes good in the slot, but they needed a body.Well see if the newest member of the Saints makes his debut this Sunday in Minnesota.Listen to WWL Radio for full reaction of the Eli Applie trade tonight on Sports Talk 4:00-8pm CSTwith Deuce, Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic, followed by the Last Lap with Seth Dunlap 8:00-11pm CST Categories: NFL Saints Tags: Eli Apple Deuce McAllister Saints New Orleans Saints Trade NFL New York Giants Comments
