Saints vs Dolphins: Game Pick - Can Saints sink Dolphins?

Three Dolphins kneel during anthem at London game Scooby Axson Sunday

The game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. on Fox Sports. Last Sunday, the Saints scored a touchdown in the first quarter at Carolina, the first one allowed by the Panthers this season.

While the Seminoles have been the dominant force in Florida college football this decade, the Noles have started off the season 0-2 for the first time since 1989.

"For many people, in part because of the vagueness of the protest goals, these national anthem knees simply come off like people being jerks about the national anthem because they don't like Trump", she said in an op-ed.

It's another Sunday of Breakfast at Wimble... er, Wembley Stadium in London as the Miami Dolphins take on the New Orleans Saints.

Yet again, the Dolphins are sacrificing a home game for the sake of playing overseas as they face the Saints in their third overseas game in the last four seasons.

The Dolphins are well below that output now, a level of production that Gase probably figured was the absolute minimum standard for his National Football League coaching career, and even more so once he was in complete control of a team. Brees connected with Michael Thomas on a 3-yard touchdown pass, and the Dolphins trailed by two scores.

"I was in a situation a year ago in Cleveland where that dragged out for some time", said quarterback Josh McCown, who was on the Browns' 1-15 team. Last year they turned the ship around, but this year is a lot harder.

"Nobody cares", guard Jermon Bushrod said. "We have to win this game". If you lose, that's all anybody cares about.

Before last week's game, 10 Saints-including Adrian Peterson-sat on the bench.

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.

Ajayi says he has gotten about 30-40 requests for the game Sunday, with family and friends all gathering to cheer him on.

This week, Detroit will have to play on the road against Minnesota's Dalvin Cook, the NFL's second-leading rusher.

Ajayi said: "It's extremely frustrating". "I'm in a good mood". "So that has been a blessing".

It was expected to be a big homecoming for the Dolphins' Jay Ajayi, who was born in the city, but the running back finished with 46 yards on 12 carries.

New Orleans is in serious need of a win as they are at the bottom of the NFC South division with a 1-2 record.

"I think it's a more enclosed environment", Payton said. His INT last week was first in career.

Adam Gase isn't going anywhere - anytime soon.

FAST FACTS: QB Drew Brees has 867 pass yards (289 per game), 6 TDs and no interceptions for a 109.7 rating in past three games. In order to avoid a shutout loss, the Dolphins called timeout with six seconds left in the game, allowing Cutler to throw a three-yard touchdown pass on the game's final play. On defense, the Saints are giving up 26 points and 452.3 yards per game, including 325.7 passing yards per contest. What resulted was the Dolphins not playing a home game in the month of September and thus spending two weeks in Los Angeles before playing the Chargers (a win), a quick trip to NY to play the Jets (a loss) and now a quick trip to London to play the Saints (TBD).

No matter where it's played.
