Saints News, 9/12/16: Saints Fall to Raiders, Start Season 0-1

New, comments

The Ls just kept on coming for the Saints on Sunday. First they gave up 25 points in the fourth quarter alone to blow a win against the Raiders, and then it was revealed that #1 CB Delvin Breaux broke his fibula after the game, for which the Saints anticipate a six week recovery. The offense looked stellar, but the Saints have a lot of work to do before travelling to Jersey to play the Giants in Week 2.
