New Orleans Saints spoil Jay Ajayi's homecoming - What did we learn?

Source Mark Lagrange

At Wembley on Sunday the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins served up the equivalent for British NFL fans - an error-riddled, penalty-strewn, stodgy stinker of a match between two teams the wrong side of average.

With the total a hair under 50 points, this game has the perception of being a free for all.

The Saints will face a pair of NFC North powers in Detroit and Green Bay looming after a bye in Week 5. These two meet from Wembley Stadium in London and the game will air live on FOX. Miami must establish the running game with Jay Ajayi so the Saints' pass rush can't create havoc up front.

When the United States national anthem was played beforehand just three Miami players - the wide receiver Kenny Stills, the safety Michael Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas - took a knee compared with 10 in their previous game against the New York Jets. He has been sacked twice, however.

The strength of the Chiefs' early offensive push has been the dazzling play of running back Kareem Hunt and the flawless leadership of Alex Smith.

The Dolphins say they have a lot of work to do to fix what ails the offense.

New Orleans' drive failed when Will Lutz missed wide right on a 41-yard field goal.

In the first three games of the 2017 season, the Dolphins are even worse. New Orleans hasn't been dominant on offense, but found a stride over the last two games. He ranks in the top five in the league in yards, touchdown passes and quarterback rating, and has yet to be intercepted.

The veteran quarterback found Michael Thomas from 3-yards for a score to make it 10-0 in the third quarter before connecting with Alvin Kamara with a 12-yard pass late in the fourth quarter to close out the contest. Ingram remains the lead horse in this timeshare (he had 14 carries for 45 yards and four catches for 17 yards). However, it was the Saints constantly maligned defense that surprised almost everyone.

They used a few interesting looks to try and combat a screen and run game that can dominate at times.

"This was all that mattered for the trip, this game on Sunday", Ajayi said. Miami's defense isn't good enough to stop the New Orleans passing attack, so I expect a big game for Brees. Ajayi needs more touches and he will get them against the Saints.
