Matthew Stafford (ankle) questionable for Sunday, but appears likely to play


METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints' home-field record over the past three years would be surprising for any National Football League team: 8-14 in their past 22 home games, dating back to November 2014.

They're 0-1 so far this year heading into Sunday's date with the Detroit Lions - a team that also came into the Dome last December and walloped the Saints, 28-13. Good teams can typically win regardless of the setting, and the Saints haven't been good the past three years as they stumbled to 7-9 finishes. "This will be good exposure for our band and our school" he said. "But, like I said, he's going to play because he's tough and he's a competitor".

Other recent performances include The Queen City Battle of the Bands in Charlotte, NC; The Heritage Classic Parade in Memphis TN; and the Fairburn Fall Festival in Atlanta, GA. In the game against the Carolina Panthers, the defense intercepted Cam Newton three times and sacked him four times.

Free Press sports writers Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez make their picks for Sunday's Lions-Saints game. "That may not mean you win every one of your home games, but it certainly has to be better than it's been recently". Im not buying into the Saints defense just yet, and with Matt Stafford at QB, its a good bet that the Lions will rally in the 4th quarter if they are down.

"The last game, obviously, he got hit a lot and any time that you can affect the quarterback, you've got a chance", Bush said.

"He's been a great addition for us", Payton said. That unit also probably made the key play of the game, when cornerback Ken Crawley picked off Jay Cutler in the end zone as the Dolphins threatened to take the lead. "He's been steady, available". He's already missed two games with the hamstring injury. I think this happens, again, as the Lions "backdoor" this line to cover the spread. After resting during the Saints' bye last week, Snead appears ready to return. "I feel like I do have something to prove right now to not only myself, but to my teammates, the coaches, the "Who-Dat" fans, that I've been in a bad place, but right now I'm past that". It was hard for Peterson to find his niche in this offense, and it was clear that the Saints preferred rolling with RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara over AP. Last year, Stafford threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns at New Orleans.

Candidates to replace Ngata include Jeremiah Ledbetter and Akeem Spence.
