Saints Report: Saints win by field goal for 3rd straight week


The New Orleans Saints are no strangers to winning streaks, around this time of year, but their current run of four straight wins, seems to follow a very particular format.

The common denominator is the last three games coming down to the right leg, of Wil Lutz, who kicked yesterday’s game-winning field goal, in overtime to give the Black and Gold a 26-23 victory over the Chicago Bears, pushing their winning streak to four games.

Perhaps a little too close for comfort, but Sunday’s game actually came down to an extra period, by virtue of Lutz missing his first field goal of the entire season — snapping a streak of 29 straight made field goals before starting a new streak of one.

It didn’t take the NFL very long to announce a suspension for Bears wide receiver Javon Wims following his ejection, last night.

He’s been suspended two games, for ripping out the mouth guard, of Saints Corner CJ Gardner-Johnson and then slugging him in the head twice, sparking a huge fight.

Earlier in the game, Gardner-Johnson ripped off Wims’ mouthpiece, prompting his retaliation, in the third quarter.

Wims is expected to appeal the suspension.
