New Orleans – As the Saints ride a six-game winning streak and sit atop NFC South, their resourcefulness and resilience will be tested in the coming weeks.
The 27-13 win over San Francisco on Sunday was costly in terms of injuries that affected midfield Drew Brace, tackling left-wing Tyrone Armsted, full-back Marchon Latimore and others..
While coach Sean Payton declined to comment on any injuries until the first injury report was released this week on Wednesday afternoon, a person familiar with the situation said Bryce had suffered multiple rib fractures and was also diagnosed with a collapsed lung.. The person spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the saints did not disclose any details about Berri’s diagnosis..
Breeze is expected to miss several matches while his lung and ribs recover, which means the offense will now primarily be in the hands of James Winston, who Tampa Bay picked for the first time in the 2015 NFL draft.
During his five seasons with Bucs, Winston was as mercurial as he was prolific. His stats last season were an example. He passed 5109 yards and 33 drops, but also threw 30 interceptions. His lack of consistency and a penchant for risky throws resulted in pirates chasing former New England Tom Brady in the last off-season and letting Winston go.
When Winston signed a one-year contract with New Orleans, he said he did so with a willingness to work as a backup and hone his game while learning from Payton and Breeze, who formed one of his most prolific coaches. Synonyms in NFL history.
Now Winston is taking a team approach first in how he talks about his goals when he’s down center rather than injured Bryce.
Winston said: « My main job is to serve my team-mates and help get us in a position to win a football match. ». « We all fight this thing together.
Winston would pass 6 out of 10 at 63 yards and led two marches to score that resulted in 10 insurance points in the second half of Sunday’s win..
Bryce, who watched the match from the sidelines, said after Sunday’s game that although Winston « did a great job. ».
Bryce said, « He was controlling the crowd really well and everything, it kind of blew up without a hitch ». “Obviously, nothing is perfect. But I thought he did some really cool throws. I thought he made some really good decisions and it was clear that he had taken advantage of the opportunities presented.
When Brace missed five games last season after undergoing hand surgery, the Saints won five games in a row with Teddy Bridgewater at the start.. So there is precedent for New Orleans’ ability to continue winning without setting records beginning with QB.
Meanwhile, Saints’ depth in defensive back, attack line and narrow finish can also be tested with Sunday’s injuries.
“This is the NFL, people get hurt all the time,” said Ryan Ramsek, Right Saints Treatment. “This is something you have to play with.
The Saints are ranked 2nd in the NFL, with a score of 76. 8 yards per game for the season after having only 49 yards in the rush against the Niners.
A scrolling game. Winston may need to develop timing and alignment with the receivers at short notice to keep New Orleans’ winning streak going. The Saints had a total of 123 yards in their triumph over the 49ers, and Brees made more than half of that before he hit. The Saints’ victory was their first with a pass of less than 125 yards since the 2006 season.
Rookie right goalkeeper Cesar Ruiz, who was recruited in the first round from Michigan last spring, was blocking the street in the play in which Street won his match and got his clean and hurtful shot on Breeze.
Breeze was only one of a number of Saints injured on Sunday. Both recipient Tre’Quan Smith and narrow end Josh Hill left Sunday’s match with symptoms of a concussion. Armstride appeared to have injured his right ankle. Defensive intervention Malcolm Brown hit the calf. Latimore had an oblique injury.
Four – The number of consecutive seasons in which the Saints have scored a winning streak of six matches. It is the first time in the history of the club, which was founded in 1967, with a streak of victories for those many years in a row. . The Saints previously won six times in a row each season from 2009 to 2011 – also during the Peyton Brace era that began in 2006..
The Saints will host the Falcons on Sunday before back-to-back matches on the road in Denver and Atlanta.
