There's a look everything just. Around the National Football League earlier this week's end this Thursday to keep exit off the Denver Broncos won their eighth straight 26 to thirteen. Over the Oakland Raiders improved to ten and three afternoon gained along the Saints in the Giants Dolphins in 49ers -- sea dogs. And tonight Lions and Packers and Mike. I would win basically down to wishing and hoping it's a Seattle ballclub it's probably going to be the ballclub. They in the Minnesota is leading right now as well but Seattle has three of their four at home and -- at the seven win more. Yet because -- -- because just how well they play at home. It's always been a real typical travel. When you go out there. And that that defense is really good comedy you know. -- world and has played very well this year as a rookie quarterback great poise we don't -- up our running attack -- Marshall lynch. Went under rated -- how they get out he would -- -- in that front four they put pressure on departure. Remember a couple of years ago we wouldn't -- -- why bill would Seattle played in New Orleans. And a lot of people questioning why you keep our keep bringing up how good the past against Seattle we don't know a lot about it -- -- a lot about it he's not the same division. The -- get out you can -- put a lot of pressure on you. Why they would certainly looked to be in the driver's seat. To get that that final spot there you know shall -- community a tremendous a model football -- and you gotta keep -- -- today. I think you put I would only you put it dump it -- on the court against the try to match up well against them I'll always matched up well. And a big key hit the fact that if you have a commitment to the running game like the Redskins did the last Monday night. And that I can't angles for a lot in games against them and you'd stop the one they are not gain the eight spot he'll march. In -- we changed its opening nine that he felt it before. Stop it won't run the football and we don't get a bounce back up and tricks. Much -- support orders notebook quarterback what. Now my obviously look at all our receivers in you know night. In no accounting for Jimmy Graham the tight end you look at the production of Marcus Colston. And Lance Moore and considering. You know when you get ready for the draft and I was seeing what they do they collegiate level. You look at a guy and to me that I want to say I think the choice -- from UMass. Big to Cruz. And and what he's been able to do in a Giants uniform. If you look right now he has sixteen catches 883 yards eight touchdowns. And you know we had talked about -- get ready for a 49 did you look at a third down receiving leaders. While he's one behind Crabtree. It on third down with 23 receptions. So sustaining drives and also. Three time zones. On their third down production and you look last year already did against the Saints. He charged the things secondary even though window crush on him but he had nine -- -- -- -- seven yards. And a couple of touchdowns and then you look could be run back to Robinson was able to do. Against Julio Jones. Against Roddy White along -- Jabari Greer and when they weren't they were outstanding he just seems like since week nine. They may be. Well hopefully not a very productive game what Victor Cruz can do against the same thing in there. How were you most effective on third down to put him in the slot. And that's where he has really made a lot of yardage you know why are you concerned about the Kenya. He's a guy that really scares you. Cruel blow a couple of coverage. But nick -- they try to keep the chains moving but he's got big move physical receiver it's been nicked up this year. But when you look at when they go to three wide. -- -- Lokhmanian -- just what you've got your third different but back going up against Victor. And so they do a lot of -- manipulation would bat. How much they don't -- page. Only look at the Patriots don't put Wes Welker and -- don't buy into -- -- was pretty -- is important to -- that's why. -- kidding that's not just they'll feel. Nick could be king here because of the fact that they're -- physical -- was -- that can contribute God's going to pay attention you know. All of a sudden couldn't become a really good third down it. Yeah now I'm at this point to a bit of Ecuador coach. And the last three games they've changed the Giants market cold the McCourt could -- perhaps just 281 yards to a touchdown. What -- Jimmy Graham our -- -- import your -- touchdown. Catch what you expect guard matchup felt pretty. So I felt a -- hard -- he accepts the that the Giants didn't think it was good court -- -- don't feel. But in particular look old but I -- the -- And the one thing with that is they don't tackle worth a lick. Downfield the toilet -- not a good tackling team a very good about or about the KJ in the NFL. Since 20060. I understand what you -- republic cruise but I think a lot of times they do -- -- to a fairly well. I thought it would have been a lot you get a little actual situation that -- no. They hit some big guys that we really. Comment that patrol put them and he hasn't been as good this year kind of idiot could and open or ample. I was gonna step into that cool yeah what we thought was not really many -- A year ago but got his foot in the football -- run the ball well at Belmont Brad Childress caught a curious about what Brandon Jacobs -- -- -- because -- -- now they know -- the ball well. And you know what they come well Monday a bit of thanks and try to get shown commitment -- running gate. So odd because of how well coached good football period we talk. And up front I think that they got to play smash not keep those guys from just check the big edge constantly premature in what -- Police national football if you want at least they have all been -- I know our entire. But really it would be incredible -- because Mark Ingram had one of his better games of the pro. Against the Giants. Are going to that is the key here -- Ingram and Pierre. Who banged -- football and really keep you guys did that sort of that they can step up the line help ought to get the -- Do you get a big -- now feel that at tight end in Jimmy Graham -- wideout Marcus schools is. All right that's NFL analyst Mike had to be -- go to the press box now and get the pregame injury report what okay guys out. Guys thanks taken to saint pregame later reported brought you by the -- instituted sports medicine for the athlete and all of us an excuse me. Familiar inactives for the guys today will be Kenny Phillips Tyler sash -- way. I don't -- LA owed you Mo Ryan Torrain Travis -- Adrian Robinson and Marvin Austin and they have no lineup changes listed. On the card here and now you're inactive for the Saints will be Corey white. Chris out every so -- biggest have answered that question and we were talking a batter Lance Scott Shanle Terrell brown. Karen walker Michael Higgins and Turk McBride and again the Saints don't have any lineup changes noted right here and that's saint pregame injury report. Brought you by the do -- institute of sports medicine for the athlete in all of us. High -- thank you very much. And welcome back -- would -- you lose your next time is 68 minutes 58 minutes to kick up between the Saints. Top 56 minutes into Saints and the Giants and down the sound that's then sort of to New Orleans Saints radio networks. Well the Saints -- they should get an opportunity today against a Giants team that likes to throw the ball around led by quarterback Eli Manning and their top target. Victor Cruz this -- stress on the saints' defensive secondary. Sideline reporter Kristian -- caught -- with Saints safety Malcolm dig -- to get his thoughts on taken on that New York Giants. -- -- -- I think if you take his game -- as his own I think we scored a lot of points offensively. -- got some turnovers usually were able to -- some pressure on it. Nothing around those are the biggest Islanders if you take. He's came in on an enormous. And they no woman had the same in Israel defense and we've got to stop him our horse yeah stop the run. I'm and then not allowed you have to big throws downfield and I think that'd be that'd be big for us to stop those two things. Offensively they got to do run a bond and we've got to lose them. They obviously made some plays in the passing maintain some drives keep you -- -- got to be able finished before the -- the full court is going to be really important for us. Tom we have in this world that this year in -- You guys and great job of closing came out and -- McEnroe winning some games phone. Nonetheless the sport yeah I mean Victor Cruz present because. You know he's very very quick here is excellent routes good hands pounds and he's more dangerous at the kids tomorrow. They're very elusive in the open field. Then you -- it's just a lot of times you get a guy inside that's. Just Quigley is not good very very fast or. Know he's fast and I'm very quick in. You know and or not elusive -- -- -- be as everything's quick. Elusive good hands can work you know -- to slide can go outside and in the -- Z receiver earned you know he can do on I think that's there. This makes him special receiver. Look around that area yeah a lot of similar if not you're not scared of the way until the you know the season we've given me pretty bad as we Kuroda today. So I don't have many volunteers of your game but I'm pretty sure it in out of the block them and welcome to the game will be decided it. I'll finally see me play -- it strategize my -- everything you. Some hobbies I'm -- begins his remembers them. Yeah toggle -- so if -- it. Yeah you know I'm real proud of whom do you always calls me at the game with some -- to say. About how somebody can do better or whatever some myself column talk about designs. Playing great so. I think it's just the style which he wins is it almost. There's this kind of unorthodox you know he's he's not a runner as a quarterback -- and he's a lot different than say hey man. Only way Eli there's just made plays things these -- to assume most. You know when he gets on the spot you might look legitimate argument he'll go on his back wouldn't still be just Zachary disease fans do. Home if he can he's had some guys they did she can make -- as well -- give me. -- has accuracy and -- thoroughness and traffic you know -- in every now and then he'll make a mistake Aaron. Are you you you question do you notice. A democratic yeah but yeah he's one of those guys he kind of he's he's come a gunslinger just if you as the last few games. You know he's tossing the ball downfield Tom -- covers known as the and I am just that is guy is gonna come over the bar. Arm and he's not afraid to take those shots and they connect on the bottom. You know so you know as you look at him as always. Seem -- he does a lot of good things a lot of good things and you see why they. And I had to Tennessee teams in the last five years ago. Wherever it is and -- -- -- consistently well this is gonna realize this we're great quarterback you are -- this week. Bobby Cushing Gant was saying defensive back and Malcolm drink you know I dig in and Malcolm brought -- -- -- -- been very disappointing this year as far as close and our games in the fourth water. I mean I never thought I would see this we -- reason -- Helm. Where are we would have been outscored in the fourth quarter right now. Opponents have scored seventy points for the Saints 62. Something is going to be critical. And today's game you look at the Giants they'd take care of in his they've outscored opponents 86. To 58 in the fourth quarter. They've been really dominant that being the Giants in the second quarter and the fourth quarter. So it is say they they've gotten off at times to slow starts. Now they still outscored their opponents in the first and third quarter but not. You know the margin like you see in that second or fourth quarter. So hopefully the Saints will close out the game because thank you -- a difference whether you win or lose in and has not occurred. So form for the Saints compared. To when they were so dominant. You know and in pass. You know games big where I was looking -- -- -- we talked about this club last week where if you look alum who won the suitable to close -- games. The Saints had outscored opponents not any one to eighteen. In the fourth quarter and that's a differential plus 73. Where now we've been outscored seventy to 62 so you wanna look at one area you why. Maybe the Saints are eight and four potentially ninety -- can be the case now as for his yeah. The same divas have bags and contain a guy like Victor Cruz had a big game against the Saints -- said that earlier a last year nine -- 157 yards. -- -- and we need a joy ride her again and casual Robinson along with. Any in the nickel corners or safeties come up big. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Between -- a scenario when they trying to play catch up a lot of that is garbage yardage but you look at Patrick Robinson. Big Eddie was struggling you have to say to start the season on the -- I know you system. It allowed the fifth most yardage and -- this season but he's kind of turned things around as of late especially since week nine. Where is seems like he's getting news and down and then hopefully Jabari Greer and try to Robinson along with. What the back into the coverage can have the kind of game they had against the Falcons. Last Thursday we will continue the -- like -- down -- kick off on the New Orleans Saints radio network. -- big opportunity this afternoon in New York giant ball club the defending world champs take an honest things seem both teams really need to stick. There's no doubt in. You know I don't know if I'll speak we have our football team you know the great moments in one's life comes from great opportunities as a great opportunity for us our football team. What -- defending world champions in their stadium. From the national televised audience we've had a good week of preparation. Our players understand what you have to do to win this game. And now we've got a good next few. Coach -- you look at some of the numbers is Saints which we have been doing extremely well eleven of 36 our defense is they'll do -- the last three games. And third downs the Giants completing third down conversions on how low the -- like a good matchup yet you know that's really. We take and take Alou was gonna take to win this game trust the more we've got to protect the ball well you know once that. Number two when the running game battle they're averaging -- 150 yards rushing per game in the wings. You wish slash dad say to eighth. Would be the battled depression scores they do such a great show of of protecting Eli and they've got a great defense affront to -- puts pressure on the opposing quarterbacks -- opposing quarterbacks. And so -- good when you get all when you get through that number three clearly is third down you know we've got to be able extend drives or third down offensively and convert. We've got to be able to get off the field a defense -- you know we should we really had to think about performance because -- -- Orlando -- for Reynolds third down and you know we're on the verge out defensively of breaking into a top ten team defensively on third downs so if we continue to improve in that area it's really help our football team. -- coasting into the defense illegal hitting screaming solid job against a very good pass catching -- of Atlanta. Another taste is Cleveland about Victor Cruz and looks like a very good match -- will -- -- for the Mets did less who -- Atlanta. And a veteran team again this week with -- leading that group. I don't think this -- disagree with yes I think that our our corners are really no real nervous she was very very well we're playing for each year's a lot of film study done on them. You can -- Sergio that you know we play every other year or whatever there is probably carry over from a year ago you -- many years not there anymore and Victor Cruz and become a little bit more. Lively and their offense. Should be a great match up above Joseph Morris had a good week of practice he's played at a high level right now as his -- -- so. Hey listen we need him today in the need to step up and play like they've been playing. Coach obviously you think delighted to -- in the mold be a big. But I think in this game they all close fourteen and it's a very healthy number there you know let's let's Tom -- football team to you know up. The other defense taking the ball away thirty times and the Giants offense has scored 85 points. -- possessions of the starting inside their own fifteen yard line that's that's a huge numbers so. While we cannot give them a short field and we've got to protect the football and that was that during we can take a -- coach -- look thank you -- In the tunnel was brought to life. And Bobby you're a stigma for that stands -- it was one of -- did the Giants plus fourteen in the turnover but. Yeah -- you look as a blade abroad that -- started to show. Not only be second in the league in the turnover margin at plus fourteen in the Patriots are ridiculous that you wanna talk about. The end that is still impressive when you look at new England and how dominant they've been as far as that turnover ratio. They got I thought okay is that a misprint. They now mid part of a team over the Dover Troy you know we were one season policy team. So no plus toward it for that is on blue -- Patriots the Texans Bears and Giants all had plus fourteen so. You know and as -- asked to be close to really changes -- on the plus side. I think -- -- to be even better even -- because because we on the road be close one up close to that commuted difference and beat the Giants now this is an instant you look at. Two offenses then. Yeah -- franchise quarterbacks in and Drew Brees and Eli Manning. Not this is a -- this is for -- this is crazy out to twelve games. Where average in. The same amount of points scoring offense for both at 26. Point eight. -- -- bettered a close to the -- as far as scoring defense -- given up 27 point three. They're given 120 point three. Which is in the top ten and number nine to babysit basically given up but there's no less in the Saints per game than. -- -- Tennessee having turnovers well will dictate. The outcome and and in his going to be critical. And then. You know we -- -- -- I think is gonna take a plus one type of effort in their turnover ratio. -- when he Drew -- to play great and he has done it. Especially against the New York football Giants in his career he's four no three and -- the Saints uniform. Eleven touchdowns and more importantly. Zero indecision -- -- and -- game. We talking about Drew Brees being five and oh in his career against the Giants. To have -- about fourteen or fifteen touchdowns. And zero interceptions. Well another big key will be the Saints defense how they hand these Giants are rushing attack and then of course with the linebackers do. Led by Curtis Lofton saints' sideline reporter Kristian -- -- now Curtis Lofton give his thoughts on facing the New York giant often. Person who makes Eli Manning. Just let me know until we look at him say -- -- -- -- -- and -- easy -- he's not -- coming do you feel like we went to soup books that are pretty elite. You are two Super Bowls in my mind you're leaving because I'm in the Super Bowl as the best of the best. He -- who tries in the -- when they did and has pretty pretty amazing accomplishments. -- -- you are you guys is you know as we're strong. We're receivers and he's clutch you know Giroux puts us in your own opponent you know he's called -- -- a factor -- it has -- Come Sunday to be ten days since you guys are alas I don't feel hasn't been a a longer ten days because of the performance the last time out. Romo Owens has been a long or ten days spent ten days you know -- just some guys back healthy. And world will be full -- tourist season and then almost near Reston. -- you can't harp on -- -- have been -- -- them before he. Personally how important obviously for what's at stake for four straight wins. You don't control your own destiny but it could you give momentum up for you guys if you're able to get into the post season. When you know we don't drawn to us and so we're we just control control and that's just taken a week where we win our games trying to win around you know. No of course for the do it in this season and they were and ran if not you know just build off this thing going connection. He hasn't played pretty well defensively the last couple times out what's visit these guys you know that is the light came on as far as learning the scheme or what's led to them. I was just saying there must find together you know -- Don't we haven't -- have the -- they're playing great but do I wasn't playing great and our. Verizon vs -- and there were also on the same page and wanna move on and enjoyment in this. Just take this into runners aren't. Looks like pretty good weather in the fifty's and their New York peace prize for December early when the schedule comes -- and April you're -- December game meal and it's going to be 2530 degrees and -- -- you look at discuss our man in December can among the New York. I'm -- there in December on this common man I was so cold. So looking forward to the 5050 degree weather -- you know the wind is always going -- affect you played them Curtis. I would feel the Falcons last year in the post season and just talk about in the same are they different. Opposes -- they have a lot of concepts of the right to do their current sexual offense and you know we'll pose a lot Breaston. -- a lot of weapons Georgia's defense loomed ever reform but. Cars -- as I appreciate eleven from a. -- things I'm backup Curtis. Yes they give you look at Curtis I mean he's lived up to expectations. Not you could see maybe. Is making tackles after the game three or four yards and I think. That's something in the lineup for the -- is a legit middle linebacker. Hero and satellite this online if you look Kansas sank. A forced fumble a one -- recover but he leads the team is 76. Unassisted tackles. And in a total. Of 100 and -- to. So you look at twelve games he averaged an iron to 22 million double -- that's. So there's been very very impressive. By Curtis Lofton is going to be a big challenger. I mean I guess and I think at the beginning who can run the ball. And a -- able to average you know all four yards a carry -- is all said and done. And -- where the Giants Lou if you look at Bradshaw. And that's a household name you followed NFL Ahmad Bradshaw. He has 836. Yard he's averaging Ford have yards a carry. With five touchdown also so can we contain him. And then also and if he comes out and -- End of and making clutch kicks. If you that the more instead big. Now -- I don't know holly cannot be in the Pro Bowl considering where he's ranked I would talk about that you know later in the week but. I mean Thomas Morris is as good as it gets as far as upon her. And then you look who Garrett Hartley. You know he did his part but all the and so did the Falcons kicker. No matter Brian as far as I'm making clutch kicks but he could come down today at in their fourth quarter -- Garrett Hartley made very crucial cake -- critical okay. And in Lawrence Tynes who look at times over the Giants kicker nine year veteran. He's 2424. In field goals of 39 yards or closer. This season but. You know I'd is only eight to twelve -- forty yards or further but I had to miss a 43 yards in the second quarter against the Redskins and think about that. That was a difference in the game. Then -- I know you don't know how it's gonna pull that second half. Would you -- from a point perspective. That 43 yard field goal that Lawrence Tynes Michigan missing is the Redskins on Monday night. Could have been the difference in the Giants winning the game and really solidified their position in the NFC east big upsets this. Afternoon Bobby going on in football late in the fourth quarter Rams are down twelve to seven to the Buffalo Bills. Cowboys been struggling all day long they are losing at Cincinnati in nineteen to tee and that. It is the Chiefs getting hammered at Cleveland thirty to seven the Browns so one of the better forty teams you'll ever see. In this league says a lady if you look at the past month -- you come any Timmy. Now the Cowboys in the being too but their defense is kick in the Cowboys behind Baylor and a ban for -- I was playing well. By the Colts 24 to 23 over the Titans. Also you have of the Minnesota Vikings not good news the Saints. The way it's looking right now they're gonna hold only get to seven win they'll beat Chicago daily -- Ole miss that's thankful and when he left their leading Chicago Tony won his seventh and they have the ball I think you will -- put the Vikings to fall on their face. Looks like getting Talladega -- there I think morning any the year in the history of the NFL we did they give. NFL comeback player of the year. You gotta have co winners how can only got to look NBA and has done an agent Peterson right look -- they can do here this week he's got a 147 as we hit. The opponents Orioles a two week that is a modern day miracle for orthopedic surgery. Yeah -- appears good about a poster child. These people are about command from major knee surgery they can walk. Correctly that's that's unbelievable Adrian Peterson in. And obviously also would Peyton Manning has accomplished with the Broncos San Diego all over Pittsburgh 34 to -- in the fourth quarter. The Buccaneers Mea the Eagles 21 to ten in the fourth. Baltimore over Washington 28 to -- it's good news for the Ravens there about eight and they have the ball deep in Washington territory. Carolina. Pounding the Falcons thirty to thirteen in the game there's really not even that close and the New York Jets seventeen to ten -- Over Jacksonville in games this afternoon at San Diego -- Miami is at San Francisco the Saints at the Giants Arizona visits Seattle and the Lions at the -- a tonight. And tomorrow night it's the Texans at the Patriots -- about be an interesting though around the national football yeah. Big game of interest now the Saints can and close out of the season on a great note and that would take in four straight wins. -- have a chance that a while accords by the game of interest when the Saints -- playing the Giants. It has to Cuba was going on out west in the great -- the last. With the Cardinals against the Seahawks. That's a team said this before even in the Saints. I do run the table. And I just don't see the sea dogs falling on their face considering how well we play at home. And they'll have to lose two out of three. Against their NFC though was division opponents. They have the Cardinals. Didn't really doesn't matter what they do at Buffalo and then they close out the season. Rams and 49ers they'd have to lose two out of those three. -- and that's with the Saints in new going for an -- but I surprising. You know you look at the Saints twelve pictured. If we do get on then and obviously. Close on great. For this season. The Vikings winning at Chicago. And no -- that's surprising the Vikings have stepped out and have not fallen by the wayside considering. Then they are a challenge I think at the quarterback position Christian Ponder you can't say he's their future. Yeah I mean I don't know if I'd ever see this a modern day NFL football he had one game. Policy threw for 5059. Yards and they still won. Had thought I'd never rule you know we see that and it just shows you really truly has it just manage the game is right now with the Vikings defense. And Asian Peterson. And then you don't make mistakes then being upon that a quarterback know that the Vikings. Have won now now -- Cecil form. You know going to it is so weekend. You were four games remaining I'd have to say. That you gotta give a lot of credit to the Colts organization. -- and Andrew Luck has been able to do for that team. And their playoff prospects and and also the Vikings. Mean everyone realistically. Before the season started. And as they can look into the crystal ball which is. Mike didn't know who predicted this. That's so far after twelve games that the giant -- -- Vikings. And the cold to be having done this kind of winning season then in in the playoff hunt and right there and I think if things. Miami. In -- is just you know I guess there was advocate. Who why we're effective and it's either going to force -- Where -- does is hold the rhythm and no I'm because I know how you will win -- -- -- win four straight it's only got five wins right now. Can't I think I'm just this guy's an awful lot on his -- and then on I'm just trying to be fair I'm his base and then on matchup as far as head to head against the Giants. And the margin of victory in. How from a psychological standpoint that there is a benefit to say is now former revenge factor. I was in the Giants have been embarrassed by the New Orleans saints' so so they -- bounce back and they're desperate. You know I would have much rather. They would have beaten. The Redskins on Monday night but now going to it has gained only one game. You know. It tells all alls said and done. The big as the Cowboys elusive of angles. -- -- just scored nineteen to sixteen so -- signing up late they don't say no and I know it's not over Scott did you look at the Ravens Redskins so he is in my theory. Still a lot of pressure on the Giants to win. Being only one game out against the Redskins in the Cowboys so. You know that being said I think this is based on. How we've had success against the Giants. Now you look at the Cowboys. The you know the one year old and that what will that winning streak in the cowboys' gain the superdome and with the things that we beat -- and things giving. So the Cowboys are the Cowboys a bowl -- like that's wishful thinking in. As far as from a national perspective TV ratings and but Oden into the college fan -- -- -- meant so well with a yeah yeah you know in the trenches along the line and Tony Romo has had big games against the Saints so. You can division opponent Tampa Bay. I think tonight we were six as is the Falcons intend to me. I mean it is things like as the Buccaneers we've. Kind of split. But no this year if we do beat the Chargers can't afford to split against Tampa. You know it's a must win then it is goes to show -- a good division opponent. Carolina ready Venus two words to win the next three then you got to close out. -- -- the Panthers a look at a convincing win. They can you independence had or how far they had right now. Against the Falcons so though is that going to be easy Andy what I'm saying even though that would be I consider. Considering trip to schedule. And teams that are in the playoff blood. Then if we go for no. It's still mind I'd be enough to look out because we expecting other things happen in the same benefit. I just filled that team I like a senate dissolving the Seahawks falling on their face. On the inside game they -- Robitaille Christie Garrett pokey guys out and Jimmy Anderson it's New Orleans. And you know we don't turn down the sentiments that took the New Orleans Saints radio network.
