The Packers, who are in the middle of their bye week, return to game action on Nov. 6 on ESPN’s Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.
Maclin: It’s cool. Any time you have an opportunity to bring a positive light on our game to different places, it’s always a good thing. Being able to play in a stadium like Wembley and see the fans over there and how they react to American football is pretty cool.
I had a chance to see downtown a little bit, had a little signing down there and interact with the fans, take pictures and talk some football.
O: Are they pretty knowledgeable about the NFL?
Yes, the Saints capitalized on Brett Hundley’s inexperience. But a balanced attack paved the way for success. Led by Mark Ingram’s 105 yards and a touchdown, the Saints gashed Green Bay for 161 rushing yards and two scores. That represented the third outing of at least 140 yards on the ground for the Saints this season. Meanwhile, Drew Brees recorded another 300-yard passing day.
The Saints are suddenly leading the division at 4-2, but there’s ample time and opportunity for any of the division’s other teams to catch up.
But despite their shaky start, Brees & Co. now look like the most stable group of the bunch.
The protection is spotty, Ajayi has precious little room to run and the receiving corps doesn’t specialize in moving the chains or making splash plays downfield. Gase’s attack is the first since the 2014 Buccaneers to be shut out four times in the first half of the season’s first seven games.
Now that Williams is healthy, the Ravens will have to prove that they can dominate more capable opponents.
