Saints shut out Dolphins in sloppy London snoozer

"We're paid to play well, and we're paid to win".

The rest of their teammates stood, as did the entire Saints squad. Their only victory being 31-13 against the Carolina Panthers.

The game, played on a soccer pitch, remained a nil-nil draw through almost the entire first half.

Gase said he'll make changes to the offense strategy in preparation for the game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday (6:30 a.m. PT/9:30 a.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV).

Penalty flags were far more prevalent than scoring opportunities in a stop-start opening 30 minutes and, with little else to talk about, the commentators chose to get creative.

Jay Ajayi rushed for a total of 16 yards on 11 carries against NY. He's the NFL's only skill player from Britain.

But...this will certainly keep the story alive and only bring more attention to how other National Football League teams act on the sidelines in later games today and in the weeks to come. "I'm in a good mood". "So that has been a blessing".

New Orleans is not known for their defense, which could help Miami have a big offensive game. Scoring just six points in two weeks against the New York Jets and Saints-two teams hardly renowned for their defense coming into the season-is a major concern and will raise questions about the job security of Cutler.

"We corrected those mistakes and I think it showed", linebacker A.J. Klein said.

Mark Ingram had 45 yards on 14 carries, and Adrian Peterson, the three-time rushing leader in his first year in New Orleans, had four carries for 4 yards.

Coach Adam Gase said he was sick of watching a "garbage" offense for two years and made a decision to do nothing about it. Cutler has done everything in his power to show just how unmotivated he is to cash in $10 million guaranteed from the Dolphins to play this season.

Cutler completed 20 of 28 passes for 163 yards.

The Dolphins drove 81 yards on the opening drive of the game and had a first-and-goal after a 22-yard completion from Jay Cutler to tight end Julius Thomas on third-and-7.

Drew Brees threw three touchdowns last weekend and confirmed he will kneel at the playing of the anthem at Wembley.

Drew Brees led the way for New Orleans (2-2), meanwhile, finishing 29-of-41 for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Payton has been playing that matter close to the vest.
