Hello Who Dats & Who Datettes and welcome to the Saints Week 12, Game 11 Thread.

As I was planning out how to lead off this thread, I was going to talk about the Saints having not beaten Denver since a 30-28 win in Denver on Christmas Eve 1994... and that with the entire starting left side of the Saints offensive line out, the Bronco D should be highly respected... and then it was announced that ALL of the Bronco quarterbacks were ruled INELIGIBLE for today's game.

In the absence of a normal quarterback, it looks like the Broncos will have to turn to a rookie who was a practice squad wide receiver this week, former Wake Forest QB & WR Kendall Hinton. Hinton's last reps as mainly a quarterback came in 2017 as he came off the bench following an injury to the starter to go 14/30 for 203 yards & 2 TDs for the Demon Deacons in a 28-14 loss to Clemson.

Sure the Saints are using a back-up quarterback as well in Taysom Hill... but Hill has been in the Saints system since 2017 and has been taking starting QB reps for 2 weeks now since Drew Brees went down injured. Hinton is an undrafted player this year who was expecting to be in a t-shirt & sweats for gameday when he got to Denver's facility on Friday morning.

The Broncos were going to enter today's game on a bit of a high... causing an actually respectable Miami Dolphins team to bench starting QB Tua Tagovailoa in a 20-13 surprising win last week to end a two-game skid.

But if the Saints get play out of the defense that it got last week, and really over the last month, it won't matter who plays QB for either team. The 8 sacks the Saints registered against Atlanta's Matt Ryan last week moved the Saints into a tie for 4th most sacks in the league, while the 9 points allowed moved the Saints into 9th in the NFL in scoring defense. The Saints D is now 3rd in the league in yards allowed at 302.2 yds/game & the 74.3 rushing yards allowed per game is second best in the league currently.

The Broncos, whose head coach is Vic Fangio... the Saints LB coach during the Dome Patrol days, are 21st in points allowed per game & 13th in yards allowed per game. The 121 rushing yards allowed per game by the Bronco D (19th in NFL) has to have Alvin Kamara, Latavius Murray, & Taysom Hill all licking their chops.

Of course, the loss of all of their QBs won't help a Bronco offense that is 23rd in yards per game (346.5) and 28th in points per game (20.6). The Saints currently score 29.5 points per game, 6th best in the NFL, and are 13th in yards per game in the NFL at 373.4.

As noted earlier, the Broncos haven't lost to the Saints since 1994, a 5-game win streak in the series by Denver. This is the Saints 1st chance at revenge since the NFL's first significant use of the "defense can return a PAT for 2 points" rule change. November 13, 2016, week 10 of the 2016 season, the Superdome was rocking after Drew Brees found Brandin Cooks with 1:22 left in the game for a 32 yard TD pass to tie the score at 23-23. All the Saints had to do was put the PAT through the uprights and victory seemed in hand. But in controversial form, the Wil Lutz PAT was blocked and the Broncos recovered the ball and returned it for 2 points the other way for the 25-23 Denver win. Friendly reminder, Bill Vinovich was the referee of that particular game. The blocker jumped right over the center, a play now considered dangerous enough to be a penalty, and the returner looked to have stepped out of bounds, but replay did not overturn Denver's winning points. By the way, the Broncos starting QB for this 2016 game was new Saints QB Trevor Siemian

Weather: For late November, you really could not ask for a better day in Denver. Nothing but sunny skies are expected around kickoff time with temperatures falling from a high around 40 degrees with winds turning from north-northeast to south at only about 5 mph.

Uniforms: Winter is coming and that means the Saints are pulling the white pants out for what the team now calls the "icy whites".

WAY too much information. This is a message board, not a news organization. It almost reads like he’s trying to imitate Zach Strief’s radio spiel (and his predecessor Jim Henderson) about 5-10 minutes before kickoff. The post is just missing “...and we’ll be back on the New Orleans Saints radio network after these messages.”

rt3, as always I love your game previews. Keep up the good work.

The Saints Radio Network has a new affiliate in West Alabama, WTXT 98.1, which will get you from about Meridian to Birmingham, but the station gets weak as you are leaving B'ham.

Formatting is

I hope the Saints show up ready to play today and don’t play down because of lack of QBs by Denver.

I Love the Saints and I Wanna Win !

You don’t have to read it all.
Even more, you don’t need to post about it.

BTW, I read the info in the OP. Why does that bother you?
