Dolphins vs. Saints: Five things to watch

Saints receiver Willie Snead is eligible to play for the first time this season after serving a three-game suspension for a drunken driving arrest.

Strief was already recovering from a knee injury - it is unclear if he aggravated the existing ailment - and his absence forced the Saints to shuffle their offensive line, with Andrus Peat moving to left tackle, Ryan Ramczyk moving to right tackle and Senio Kelemete entering at left guard.

That unit is broken and all you need to do is look at the last two games in which Miami has scored only one touchdown.

The Dolphins are allowing an average of 8.6 yards on passes this season and that is a scary number considering the opposing quarterback in this one.

I am not interested in seeing how each team presents itself on the sideline or elsewhere in the stadium during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner in London, England, or anywhere else.

The Saints fielded the worst defense in the National Football League through the first two weeks of the season, allowing Minnesota's Sam Bradford and New England's Tom Brady to combine for 793 yards and six TDs passing against no interceptions.




New Orleans Saints, meanwhile, are bottom of the NFC South (1-2) but got their season up and running last week with a 34-13 victory over the Panthers. "Offensively, we sustained drives".

Lutz nailed a 45-yarder and the Saints would have had a great chance to all but end the game as a contest had they recovered a Cutler fumble after he was stripped by Cameron Jordan. That match, Brees threw 220 yards with three touchdowns. When reminded that his Dolphins went 1-4 a year ago before rallying to make the playoffs, Gase made it clear that this is far from the same situation.

Saints defense shows teeth " I don't know when we last pitched a shutout.

The Saints quarterback found Michael Thomas in the third quarter before a shovel pass to Alvin Kamara in the dying minutes. Out of fairness, the Saints' systems were turned off, forcing both teams to use hand signals for coach-to-player communications. "I'm in a good mood".

The Saints players knelt together as a team before the national anthem and then stood together during the playing of the anthem, performed by Darius Rucker, in a planned show of unity.

I want to see if the Saints can pull even at 2-2 and validate their big road win at Carolina in Week 3 going into their bye week.
