GLENDALE, Ariz. -- New Orleans had the top-ranked offense in the NFL going into Sundays action. Arizona had the No. 1 defense.Something had to give.Turns out, it was the Arizona `D.Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints offense came alive after a two-game hibernation and New Orleans beat the Cardinals 48-41 in the highest-scoring game in the NFL this season.To lose after scoring 41 is tough, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said.Brees completed 37 of 48 passes for 389 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions for a passer rating of 127. It was the 21st time he had thrown for at least four scores with no interceptions, tying Tom Brady for most in NFL history.And his big game came on the heels of a pair of not-so-good ones for the standout quarterback. In the previous two contests, both New Orleans losses, Breeze had thrown for zero touchdowns with six interceptions as the Saints scored a combined 24.New Orleans (6-8) had lost four of five games going into Arizona.Guys know the talent we have on this team, said Tim Hightower, who ran for two New Orleans scores. We know the character that we have. Not once do you feel like guys have checked out.The Cardinals (5-8-1) are assured of having the first losing season in Arians four years as coach. It is a stunning reversal for a team that went 13-3 a year ago.Given our potential and given how good we were last year, Arizonas Tyrann Mathieu said, the guys that we added to this team, the guys that came back, all the veterans we have all the superstars -- to be sitting way below .500, its frustrating for everyone right now.Here are some things to consider from New Orleans wild win over the Cardinals:COOKS COOKIN: Brandin Cooks gave the Arizona secondary fits all afternoon. He was targeted eight times and caught seven of them for a career-best 186 yards, including touchdown plays of 65 and 45 yards.He took advantage of some real big throws and opportunities, New Orleans coach Sean Payton said.Cooks again topped 1,000 yards receiving for a season.Its not where I want to be. Theres a lot more room for improvement, he said. Dont get me wrong, its a blessing to be able to get that. Knowing where I want to be as a player, Im far from it, so there wont be a sit-down reflecting on it as a good thing. Its going to be a sit-down reflecting on how I can get better and to make sure that its a lot better than what it is now.JOHNSON HITS 14: Arizonas David Johnson ran 12 times for 53 yards and caught four passes for 55 yards, making him the only player in NFL history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first 14 games of a season.It means a lot, he said. No one else has ever had it, so this is probably my favorite thing that Ive accomplished that has to deal with football. From everything that Ive been through, this means the world.Johnson has his eyes on an even bigger stat. He wants to join Roger Craig and Marshall Faulk as the only players to top 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season.He needs 200 yards receiving in the last two games.RUNNING SAINTS: The Saints big passing day was helped by an effective ground game.New Orleans outrushed Arizona 130 yards to 116. Mark Ingram led the way with 78 yards in 17 attempts.They ran the ball better than I thought they would against our front, Arians said.FITZGERALD AT 200: Larry Fitzgerald played in his 200th career game and reached another milestone in the process. The wide receiver caught seven passes to give him more than any player in NFL history in his first 200 games.Fitzgerald has 1,116 career receptions, one more than Jerry Rice had in his first 200 games.Fitzgerald has caught a pass in 193 consecutive games, third-longest streak ever in the NFL.LOOKING AHEAD: The season will soon be over for the Cardinals and Saints, but both will go against teams that have much to play for next week.Arizona plays at Seattle on Christmas Eve. The Seahawks have clinched the NFC West title, but are only a half-game ahead of Detroit in the race for the second-best record in the conference and the first-round playoff bye that goes with it.New Orleans returns home to face Tampa Bay on Saturday in the Saints final home game. The Buccaneers are in the thick of the fight for the NFC South title and a wild-card berth.---For more NFL coverage: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Mexico Soccer Jerseys . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.

Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. http://www.cheapmexicojerseysauthentic.com/ .

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. BATON ROUGE, La. -- Ed Orgeron is encouraging everyone associated with LSU to forget the recent past and let go of the frustration that led to the firing of arguably the most successful football coach in school history.Were excited to start Week 1 of our new season, Orgeron, who is now LSUs interim coach , said this week as he prepared the Bayou Bengals to host Missouri on Saturday night.The game is the first for LSU since last weekends firing of popular but polarizing coach Les Miles , who won 114 games in 11-plus seasons in Baton Rouge, not to mention the 2007 national title. A pair of early season setbacks this fall -- both characterized by stagnation on offense and unproductive quarterback play -- hastened the end of the Miles era.LSU (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) had entered the season ranked fifth nationally , largely because the squad featured a slew of returning starters headlined by a Heisman Trophy candidate in running back Leonard Fournette. But after last Saturdays 18-13 loss at Auburn, LSU fell out of the AP Top 25 .LSU athletic director Joe Alleva wasnt ready to give up on this season. He figured the best coach to save it might be Orgeron, who went 6-2 in his last interim gig with USC.Orgeron also offers continuity, having been a defensive line coach at LSU since last season, and the recruiting coordinator for most of the past year.I would expect our team to come out and play very emotional and play with a lot of energy, Orgeron said. If youve been to our practice the last couple days, guys are having fun.LSU quarterback Danny Etling said his team knows that with only one SEC loss, its season is far from ruined.We still have a lot of goals. We cant let the season go to waste, Etling said. To win out will require hard work, perseverance and guys coming together despite all the distractions.If Orgerons promotion doesnt work out, then at least every top coach in college football knows now would be the time to take a serious look at whether LSU might provide an enticing opportunity in 2017.In any event, recent upheaval on the bayou makes this an interesting time for Missouri (2-2, 0-1) to make its first appearance ever in LSUs Death Valley.Ive been throuugh a coaching change during the season and I understand how that goes, said Missouri coach Barry Odom.dddddddddddd. Im guessing and suggesting that both sides will be ready to play.Some things to know about Mizzous visit to LSU:HIGH-FLYING TIGERS: Mizzou leads the SEC with 569.5 yards per game. Sophomore QB Drew Lock tied a school record by passing for five TDs in a game twice already this season. Lock is passing for 377 yards per game, which also leads the SEC.They have a passing game that will test you if you try to play the run too much, Orgeron said.But Lock still has to prove he can sustain such prolific play against SEC defenses. Much of his production has come against overmatched non-conference opponents Eastern Michigan and Delaware State.SHIFTING ON THE FLY: While LSU has run the ball on nearly 60 percent of offensive plays this season, Orgeron has promised a change in offensive style under newly promoted coordinator Steve Ensminger.Were putting in new plays, a new offense, Orgeron said. You cant put a lot in in one week but were trying as best we can.WHAT A CROCKETT: Freshman running back Damarea Crockett is showing signs of emerging as a featured player in Mizzous offense. He isnt a speedster, but his all-around ability and 220-pound frame give him potential.Hes a talented kid, and for us, his running style is fitting what were doing schematically, Odom said. He understands that this team is leaning and relying on him. Hes going to play meaningful snaps as we move forward.STOPPING POWER: One area in which LSU has been solid is defense. Under first-year coordinator Dave Aranda, LSUs defense ranks third in the SEC and did not allow a touchdown at Auburn last week, forcing six field goals. Orgeron, a long-time defensive coach, was impressed. He elevated Aranda to associate head coach.FOURNETTES STATUS: Fournette appeared to injure his lower leg late in the loss at Auburn , leaving his availability this Saturday in doubt.We dont know, Orgeron said. All likelihood is that hell try to play.---AP College Football: collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
