Commentator takes shot at Spurs during NFL London broadcast

The London crowd finally saw its first touchdown during an 11-play, 77-yard series which ended in Saints quarterback Drew Brees rolling out to his right and connecting with Michael Thomas for a three-yard touchdown.

"That's one of those special plays where we're like, 'All right, we're practicing it, but are we going to run it?'" said Kamara, who scored with 3:57 remaining. And yet, curiously, 80,000 people seemed to find it a good enough way to spend three hours as the Saints won the second London match of the season 20-0.

I am not interested in seeing how each team presents itself on the sideline or elsewhere in the stadium during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner in London, England, or anywhere else.

The Saints are 2-2 and very much in the hunt in the NFC, but fans who flocked to Wembley anticipating a shootout from their game with the Dolphins left underwhelmed. 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. Miami (1-2) finished with 186 total yards - its fewest since its last shutout, a 19-0 loss at Buffalo on December 22, 2013. "Offensively, we sustained drives".

Ajayi said on Friday he was unsure whether he would again protest but tight end Julius Thomas has confirmed he intends to make a statement once more.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross so disliked his team's condensed schedule that he asked the National Football League to move this week's game to Miami. The Saints held the Dolphins to 185 total yards and also registered four sacks. The key has been the defensive corps of the Redskins - particularly their rushing defense, which is allowing an average of just over 62 yards per game. "We need to get back to what we know we can do". Brees connected with Michael Thomas on a 4-yard score, the first touchdown of the contest, giving the Saints a 10-0 lead. "I've embraced (the attention) because at the end of the day I've got a lot of pressure on myself to be successful". Out of fairness, the Saints' systems were turned off, forcing both teams to use hand signals for coach-to-player communications.

While the debate was initially about players who knelt, sat, or raised a fist in protest of the anthem, most teams have avoided making such a strong statement, choosing instead to do a more generic demonstration of locking arms while standing, with many issuing statements insisting that they are in no way protesting the anthem.

The Saints will face a pair of NFC North powers in Detroit and Green Bay looming after a bye in Week 5.
