The Saints didn’t take a step back when Teddy Bridgewater took over at quarterback for Drew Brees and they didn’t take a step back in Brees’s return from a right thumb injury on Sunday.Brees threw three touchdowns in the second half and the Saints defense kept the Cardinals out of the end zone for the entirety of a 31-9 home win. The victory runs the Saints’ winning streak to six games and leaves them with a 7-1 record at the midway point of their 2019 season.The Saints lost a couple of chances for points in the first half when Wil Lutz missed a field goal at the end of the opening drive and an apparent touchdown just before halftime failed when left tackle Terron Armstead was flagged for holding. It looked like that might come back to haunt them when Patrick Peterson picked Brees off to start the third quarter Alvin Kamara Jersey White , but the Cardinals made a strange decision to go for it on fourth-and-one from their own 30-yard-line on the ensuing drive.The Saints stuffed Chase Edmonds and Latavius Murray had the first receiving touchdown of his career a few plays later to get the Saints offense rolling. Brees would hit Taysom Hill for a touchdown on their next drive and then hit a big play to Hill to set up a Michael Thomas touchdown that put the final icing on the cake.Brees ended the day 34-of-43 for 373 yards and Murray churned his way to 102 yards with Alvin Kamara on the sideline with an ankle injury. The Saints could get Kamara back after the bye and that would only add to a team that looks suited for another extended playoff run this winter.The Cardinals don’t look to be on that track. They only managed 237 yards and didn’t have the success on the ground that Edmonds enjoyed against the Giants last weekend. He only had eight yards on seven carries before departing with a hamstring injury. Kyler Murray was 19-of-33 for 220 yards before being pulled in favor of Brett Hundley once the game was out of reach.The overall offensive picture wasn’t much better last week, but eight sacks from the defense made life easier. They never got to Brees this Sunday, however, and they’re now 3-4-1 with a visit from a tough 49ers defense on tap for next Sunday. NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL will consider expanding replay reviews to include certain penalties, including pass interference.Two people with direct knowledge of the NFL’s plans tell The Associated Press that the league’s competition committee once again will look into including more plays for video review. The people Womens Tre'Quan Smith Jersey , who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not publicly announced such plans, stressed that the committee looks into the parameters of replay yearly. It has considered inclusion of what are considered judgment calls by officials in the past.Officiating once more became a hot topic during Sunday’s NFC championship game. A missed call by referee Bill Vinovich’s crew of a blatant pass interference penalty and helmet-to-helmet hit by Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman on Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis likely cost New Orleans a spot in the Super Bowl.Saints coach Sean Payton said Al Riveron, the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating, told him afterward that a flag should have been thrown.“Considering the current climate after what happened in New Orleans, yes Marshon Lattimore Saint Jersey , that’s something the committee once again will strongly look at,” one person said. “It gets talked about each year, but it’s not been something the ownership or the league has gone for.”Indeed, the powerful competition committee always has opposed placing judgment calls of any kind in the replay process. Any changes to replay would need approval by at least 24 of the 32 team owners, but first the competition committee would need to recommend such alterations.One reason the league has been loath to expand replay is a fear it would significantly lengthen games — and not with any real action.Expanding the number of coaches’ challenges also could occur. That’s been discussed before and usually tabled or not presented to the owners. Several head coaches Womens Michael Thomas Jersey , including Payton, have expressed their support of more challenges.The competition committee is comprised of chairman Rich McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons; owners John Mara of the New York Giants and Stephen Jones of the Dallas Cowboys; Mark Murphy, president of the Green Bay Packers; general managers John Elway of the Denver Broncos and the retiring Ozzie Newsome of the Baltimore Ravens; and coaches Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers and, coincidentally Womens Drew Brees Jersey , Payton. They will meet at the NFL combine, and also in early March before the league’s annual owners meetings in Phoenix at the end of that month.“It’s tough to get over it,” Payton said of the non-call with 1:41 left in regulation, which would have given the Saints an opportunity to run down the clock and possibly kick a go-ahead field goal with little time remaining.“My problem with it is, I just don’t know Michael Thomas Jersey White , if we were playing pickup football in the backyard … it was as obvious a call — and how two guys can look at that and arrive at their decision? It happened though.”
