The Right Time: Chain snatchin', old quarterbacks, and a PSA for football fans

Saints WR Michael Thomas limped off the field just before the two-minute warning in Sunday's game after getting his leg rolled into by RB Latavius Murray. But the TV broadcast showed him standing on the sideline afterward without a wrap or ice, which is a good sign. The Saints' first practice will be Thursday this week instead of Wednesday, since their next game is on Monday night at Las Vegas.

Tom Brady's big gamble goes bust in Week 1?

Brady's first Bucs drive was promising enough, but the Saints' resilience (and a GOAT on the other sideline) showed just how challenging his time in Tampa Bay will be.

Source: Saints give LB Davis 3-year extension

The Saints on Saturday signed All-Pro linebacker Demario Davis to a three-year extension worth $27 million plus incentives, a source told ESPN, confirming a Fox Sports report.

You couldn't tell by the final score in the Saints' 34-23 win over Tampa Bay that they struggled to generate much offense throughout the day (just 271 total yards and 160 passing yards by Drew Brees). "As bad a game as I've had as a play caller ... it was awful," Sean Payton said. But they took advantage of the Bucs' sloppy effort, got some huge plays by the defense and special teams with three takeaways and a blocked kick. And Brees did just enough with a 46-yard deep pass to TE Jared Cook.

Emmanuel Sanders caught his first two passes as a New Orleans Saint on back-to-back plays in the fourth quarter to give the Saints a 31-17 lead. He made a nifty grab for a 6-yard gain on third-and-6. Then he shed a would-be tackler for a 5-yard TD. The Saints' best offensive drive of the game was highlighted by a 46-yard deep ball from Drew Brees to tight end Jared Cook. Brees had only 94 passing yards in the first three quarters.

Saints CB Janoris Jenkins proving to be a game-changer in Week 1. His pick-6 against Tom Brady gave the Saints a 24-7 lead over the Buccaneers early in the third quarter. It was a beautiful pick, too. He just reached up and snagged it in stride, then cruised into the end zone for the 36-yard score. Jenkins had an impressive training camp for the Saints, too -- a reminder that he could be New Orleans' biggest impact "newcomer" despite arriving last December.
