(asked whether they got the “college feel” today) “Yeah, it usually does when you play in this state. The fans really drive it. It was insane to return and go through it. Thankfully, we came out on top. We had a fantastic day.
(Recounting his experience of throwing the game-winning touchdown pass to Ja’Marr Chase) “That was a tremendous play by him. When things go rough, I’ll be looking for that person, because I know he’ll come through for us. That man never ceases to amaze me.
(about how he felt upon entering the stadium this morning) “”I have a lot of fantastic memories. Even though it was only one game, I remember the stadium, the atmosphere, and the spectators very fondly. That’s why it was so refreshing to return and soak up the atmosphere once again.
“I wanted to show honour to the people of Louisiana,” he said, explaining why he was wearing Ja’Marr Chase’s LSU shirt from the National Championship Game. Ja’Marr wore this jersey to the championship game, so what better way to celebrate his achievement?
As Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase put it, he and quarterback Joe Burrow “were on the same page with the back shoulder” on the game-winning touchdown reception (pass). After being thrown in that direction, I was able to cause a person to misfire. The moment I saw Tyrann (Mathieu) approaching, I sprang into action.
(Referring to Burrow sporting Chase’s LSU shirt) Because I had no idea what he was about to do, I thought he was insane when he asked for it. Then it was nice to see him wearing it and representing me in my hometown.
(when asked where the jersey was kept) “On the wall. It was hanging over my head, and I had to pull it down to give it to him.
Cornerback on the Bengals Apple Eli
(on coming back to New Orleans and winning) As the saying goes, “a win is a win,” and a league football victory is no exception. “It’s a fantastic sensation.”
“A victory is a win, baby,” he said when asked whether this was satisfying considering his experience with the Saints. We’re eager to proceed. (Referring to Ja’Marr Chase’s most recent touchdown) “That’s why he’s the greatest. The catch is in sight, so you better get going! (is his speciality). After that capture, no one will dare to bother him. One might argue either for or against (him). He finished with a bang, or a strong run. And with that tilt (was special). Maintaining that momentum is essential, as well.
New Orleans’s offence sputters down the stretch, and the Saints end up losing a game they were leading.
A NEW ORLEANS — — Andy Dalton has a chance to further establish himself as New Orleans’ starting quarterback.
On Sunday, the Saints’ offence froze up in the last two drives, enabling the Bengals to grab a late lead and hang on for a 30-26 victory against New Orleans. This might pave the way for Jameis Winston’s comeback against the Cardinals on Thursday night.
Winston has missed the last three games while nursing back and ankle issues, but he was back in uniform for the first time in that span against the Bengals.
Saints head coach Dennis Allen has noted, “He’s not 100 per cent healthy.” We’re playing a game on Thursday night. Let’s do some research on it and see where he is at so we know where to take it.
Dalton now shares Winston’s 1-2 record from this year as a starter.
When asked whether he anticipated starting against Arizona, Dalton stated, “I’m going to let D.A. (Allen) handle that entire thing.” What follows is “well, we’ll see how it works out.”
With 1:57 remaining, Ja’Marr Chase’s 60-yard grab gave the Bengals their first lead of the game.
In the closing minute of the game, Dalton led the Saints to the Cincinnati 41-yard line before throwing three incomplete passes and was sacked on third down.
On fourth-and-17, his pass deep down the sideline to Marquez Calloway went far short of the end zone.
Dalton emphasised the importance of taking satisfaction in performing at one’s highest level under pressure. The answer is “not today.”
Dalton completed 17 passes out of 32 attempts for 162 yards despite missing his three best receivers (Michael Thomas (foot), Jarvis Landry (ankle), and Chris Olave (concussion). From the beginning of the second quarter until the beginning of the fourth, he led touchdown drives on four consecutive possessions, but the Saints settled for field goals on their last three attempts after reaching the Bengals’ 20-yard line.
Despite New Orleans’ 228-yard rushing effort and Rashid Shaheed’s 44-yard touchdown run out of the practice squad the day before the game, they came up short. It was the second straight game in which the Saints rushed for over 200 yards, just the third time it has occurred since 1990.
The Saints were unable to maintain their advantage, unlike last week’s game against Seattle. They took a 17-7 lead into halftime and extended it to 23-14 after three-quarters thanks to two field goals on consecutive 14-play drives.
Mark Ingram, who rushed for 46 yards on nine rushes, said, “You control the game from the beginning and essentially self-destruct in the final three minutes.” You dominated the game the whole time, yet you still came out on the losing end. We have to rethink our strategy and be ready within the shortened week.
If the Saints had won, they would have joined Tampa Bay and Atlanta atop the NFC South. The Saints were on the verge of victory prior to a tumultuous last few minutes.
While the offence has struggled in the red zone, Ingram believes they still have a chance to prevent the other team from regaining possession. After letting one go for fear of the consequences, they were able to regain possession of the ball in an advantageous field position. By the conclusion of the game, everybody’s hands are filthy.
Bengals: Everything We Know About the New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals Game
Predictions for Missing Time: #1 Tight End Before halftime, Adam Trautman sprained his ankle after being rolled up on a run play. Even though the team had claimed he was doubtful to return, he came back out for the second half with heavy tape on his left foot.
Andrus Peat, the left guard, went down with an injury and did not return; rookie lineman Lewis Kidd took his place. Kidd played left tackle at Montana State but has been working on his right tackle skills with the New Orleans Saints this summer.
Late in the fourth quarter, wide receiver Keith Kirkwood went to the medical tent for treatment, but he ended up returning to the game.
That’s when it was over when…
- Nearing the end of the fourth quarter, the Saints defence went three and out. As the clock ticked down to 3:42 and they had used all three of their timeouts, they took the field from their own 25-yard line leading 26-24. Over 15 minutes of possession time had already elapsed for them.
- Third-and-four was within reach after two runs, but former Saints pass rusher Trey Hendrickson blew up left tackle James Hurst. Attempting a ball on a crossing pattern to a wide-open Juwan Johnson, Andy Dalton was stymied by Hendrickson, who got a hand in the quarterback’s throwing motion.
- The Bengals’ offence started from its own 40-yard line after an uncommon (and badly timed) shanked punt by Blake Gillikin. One more play and Ja’Marr Chase would have had time to shrug off a tackle from Bradley Roby and beat Tyrann Mathieu down the sideline for a 60-yard touchdown catch. The Saints’ offence has fallen into a deep hole because of the worst conceivable chain of circumstances. The worst part is that they created this problem for themselves by making errors in all three rounds.
