In a game when Drew Brees didn’t throw a touchdown

EAST RUTHERFORD Trace McSorley Jersey , N.J. (AP) — and NFL leading receiver Michael Thomas was limited to four catches, the New Orleans Saints won with other options — Alvin Kamara and a defense that didn’t live up to its much-maligned status.Kamara ran for three second-half touchdowns, Wil Lutz matched his career high with four field goals and the Saints’ defense shut down the New York Giants after giving up an early touchdown in a 33-18 win on Sunday.“This was a complete game, everything came together,” said Kamara, who ran for 134 yards and scored on runs of 9, 4 and 49 yards. “Lutz making big kicks, those were as big as anything. The defense came up big, the O-line did a great job. That was the big difference. You know, the running game has been building. I just get behind those big guys and we get some big runs.”The win was the third straight for the Saints (3-1) and it sent the offensively inept Giants to their third loss in four games under new coach Pat Shurmur. New York is averaging just over 20 points — 27 came in the win at Houston — and this was a season low.“It seems like it shouldn’t be this hard but it is,” said New York star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. “We got to come with the energy like our game last week. It’s not one person doing this or one person doing that. It’s got to be everybody. We’ve just got to stick together It’s definitely not the results we want, the outcome. It’s not the way we want to play.”If there was a surprise Kyler Murray Jersey , it was the Saints’ defense, which came in ranked 30th in the league. After giving up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Sterling Shepard on the Giants’ opening drive, New Orleans limited New York to a 33-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas in the third quarter and a late 1-yard TD run by Saquon Barkley , followed by a 2-point conversion pass from Manning to Shepard.The defense allowed only four plays of 20 or more yards after giving up 37 points in an overtime win over Atlanta last weekend.“What pressure would there be on us?” said Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan. “There was no place to go but up. We talked about trying to get better as a defense and we take every game as a challenge.”The Saints certainly met this challenge.The anticipated shootout between the 39-yard old Brees and the 37-year-old Manning never materialized.Brees, who came in needing 418 yards passing to break Peyton Manning’s NFL career mark, finished 18 of 32 for 217 yards. Manning was 31 of 41 for 255 yards as the Giants (1-3) finished with just 299 total yards.“We got off to a good start, had a good drive,” Manning said. “We thought we’re capable of moving the ball and making plays on this team. We just weren’t able to do it. “Lutz connected from 42, 34, 37 and 26 in the first half. Kamara stretched the lead to 19-7 with 9-yard run that capped a nine-play, 69-yard drive on New Orleans’ opening possession of the second half.The 49-yard run capped a 97-yard drive for the Saints after Ted Ginn Jr. bobbled a kickoff following the Barkley score. The Saints had drives of 74 and 80 on the other touchdowns and finished the game with 392 total yards.Rosas closed the gap to 19-10 in the third quarter, but the Saints took control with Kamara’s final two TD runs in the fourth quarter.The Giants had scored on the opening possession with Manning capping a 10-play http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-byron-murphy-jersey , 75-yard drive with his short TD pass to Shepard. After that, New York gained 22 yards the rest of the half.TRICK PLAYSSaints coach Sean Payton used backup quarterback Taysom Hill in a number of roles. He completed a 10-yard pass on a fake punt on New Orleans’ second possession. It set up Lutz’s first field goal. He also threw an incompletion on a red zone pass, had four runs for 28 yards, and returned a kickoff for 16 yards. Coming into the game, he had not thrown a pass and had three rushes for 39 yards.INJURIES:Saints: No injuries were announced.Giants: Beckham finished the first half in the locker room getting an IV. He returned in the second half and finished with seven receptions for 60 yards.UP NEXTSaints: Home against Washington for a Monday night game on Oct. 8.Giants: At Carolina next Sunday. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Derek Carr knows what outsiders think about the run-down Oakland Coliseum with the infield dirt for early season games, substandard locker rooms, and a lack of all the amenities prevalent in newer and more expensive NFL stadiums.For Carr and the Raiders, there’s a different word that comes to mind.“I just laugh, because it’s home to me,” Carr said. “It may not be perfect and to everyone’s standards or anything like that, but it’s home. This is where I was drafted. This is where I have some of my favorite memories. Even when I got hurt Andy Isabella Jersey , that’s still a moment for me that I’ll never forget, just the love that the fans would show, and driving on the outside of the stadium to find the X-ray machine because there’s no way straight up to the locker room, driving through the fans. Those are things that I’ll never forget.”The Coliseum might be hosting its final NFL game on Monday night when Oakland (3-11) hosts the Denver Broncos (6-8).The Raiders are set to move to Las Vegas in 2020, where they will play in a new $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat stadium that will make the Coliseum look like a relic.The franchise is still looking for a home in 2019. The City of Oakland sued the Raiders over the move earlier this month, leading the team to pull its lease offer to play there next year. The Raiders are talking to the San Francisco Giants about playing in AT&T Park next season, could look to share Levi’s Stadium for a year with the 49ers, or even look outside of the market for a temporary home next year.Returning to Oakland, where crazily dressed fans have filled the Black Hole for the past 24 seasons, is also a possibility. A decision likely will come sometime before the Super Bowl.But for now Brian Burns Jersey , the players and coaches just want to savor what could be the final game in Oakland.“I am really sensitive about hearing that,” coach Jon Gruden said. “It’s going to be a great atmosphere Monday night, on Christmas Eve, the Denver Broncos coming to town. I get excited thinking about it. Just raging in the Black Hole. Rocking and raging down there after the Steelers game, after a lot of wins over the years. Seeing a lot of the old highlights of the great Raiders teams. I get excited and I get emotional about it. Hopefully, we get it all resolved where we can continue to play here.”The Coliseum hosted its first pro football game in 1966 and is now the last of the multisport stadiums that were so prevalent in the 1970s and ’80s. The Raiders share their home with the Oakland Athletics, leading to the infield dirt that is in the middle of the field each year until baseball season ends.The stadium has been home to many memorable games: the “Heidi” game in 1968; the Sea of Hands playoff win over Miami in 1974; and the night Brett Favre threw four TD passes in the first half a day after his father died.The Raiders won AFC championship games at the stadium leading to their first Super Bowl title in the 1976 season and then again in 2002, the last time they won a playoff game.Gruden said he might show his players a video the night before the game so they can fully appreciate the history.“It’s a real football stadium,” he said. “It’s dirt, grass. It has tradition. It’s where some of the best games in history of football have been played. It’s where some of the best players in the history of the world played football games at. You’re walking around before the Steeler game and you see Franco Harris and Lester Hayes and you think about some of the battles that they had at that place. Reggie Jackson lighting the torch. There’s a lot of things that happened in that stadium.“Next question. I don’t want to start crying about a stadium.”The Broncos are a fitting final opponent, having won more games there than any visiting team as a longtime AFC West rival of the Raiders. Coach Vance Joseph, who spent six seasons as an assistant across the Bay with the San Francisco 49ers http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/greg-little-jersey-authentic , appreciates the lore of the Coliseum.“When you are all done with this job as a player or a coach, all you have is ancient memories and the awards you won,” he said. “The memories are the most important, so you can tell your kids about playing in that stadium and who played at that stadium before you. For the coaches and players to have a chance to play there, if it’s going to be the last game, it should be an honor.”
