The New Orleans Saints face the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Oct. 15 in NFL Week 6 of the 2017 season, and here is all the info you need to watch.
The New Orleans Saints will take on the Detroit Lions in Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season. The Saints are coming off a bye week, with their previous game being a 20-0 win over the Miami Dolphins in London. New Orleans put together an impressive trio of offense. Quarterback Drew Brees got the ball rolling, going 29-for-41 on the day, and passing for 268 yards and two touchdowns.
Wideout Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara were on the receiving end of both of those. Thomas had a great day catching eight passes for 89 yards and a touchdown. Playing the role of a dual-threat back Kamara carried the rock five times for 25 yards. He had a much better day through the air, snagging 10 passes for 71 yards and a touchdown
In the Motor City, the Detroit Lions played tough but fell to the Carolina Panthers by a 27-24 margin. Matthew Stafford had a great game, going 23-of-35, passing for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Perhaps the biggest story of this contest was the play of the tight ends.
Eric Ebron had a tough day, dropping several passes. In the meantime, Darren Fells stepped in and picked up the slack, catching two passes for 24 yards and two touchdowns. A 20-yard snag was his longest of the day, and his unexpected production gave the team a boost.
