Drew Brees Says Saints Will Kneel Before Anthem, Stand During

Brees threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns and the Saints scored all but three of their points in the second half as they defeated the Miami Dolphins 20-0 on a rainy Sunday afternoon at Wembley Stadium.
The Dolphins only arrived in London on Friday morning, unlike the Saints (1-2) who have spent the whole week in Britain as a way of getting adjusted to the time difference. The Saints intercepted Carolina's Cam Newton three times, had four sacks and allowed just 184 yards passing. They also sported replica Saints Super Bowl rings.
Ajayi says he has gotten about 30-40 requests for the game Sunday, with family and friends all gathering to cheer him on. Sure, Ajayi was in London two seasons ago when the Dolphins faced the New York Jets, but he was on short-term injured reserve at that time and didn't get to play. It was another classic Gus Frerotte vs Aaron Brooks quarterback battle where neither guy passed for more than 182 yards and produced one touchdown, two interceptions and a safety between them. However, not much changed in the team's next game against the Jets. Nine if you count the guy that picked him off.
Cooks is now making big plays with the New England Patriots, so Snead's production should definitely increase as the rest of the season goes by. This past Sunday, he was 2 for 3 in field goals and a ideal 4 for 4 in extra points outside at Charlotte.
Brees found Thomas, who had eight catches for 89 yards, on a 4-yarder to push the score to 10-0 in the third quarter, and Kamara took a shovel pass from Brees 12 yards into the end zone with 3:57 remaining to wrap up the victory. He had a mere 11 carries for just 16 yards against the New York Jets.
LONDON-This is a critical game for the Dolphins, regardless of the arduous circumstances leading up to it, and they have plenty of questions to answer when they face the Saints at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. His quarterback sneak gave New Orleans the first down by just a couple of inches. The Dolphins would be wise to hammer the ball over and over and let Ajayi be a wrecking ball in front of his home crowd. He was 22 of 44 for 220 yards, one touchdown and one pick.
"I didn't have a team" until the Saints-Chargers game in 2008, Harrison said.
Marshon Lattimore, the top cornerback selected in the first round of last spring's draft, returned to practice this week from a concussion, which should only help the defense.
The hard-traveling Miami Dolphins barely won out west, flopped up north and have now gone east, their season suddenly heading south.
