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.
