Andrus Peat was carted off the field after a leg injury that resembled Michael Thomas’s ankle injury from week 1, and Peat missed the rest of the game.
Sean Payton calls their two straight losses a “bit of a gut check,” saying, “We’re making too many mistakes. We aren’t playing disciplined enough on both sides of the ball.”
Ahead of the Saints’ game against the Green Bay Packers, the team made 4 roster moves, with wide receiver Bennie Fowler and defensive end Margus Hunt moved to the active roster, running back Ty Montgomery put on IR, and guard Will Clapp was waived.
Penalties were once again one of the biggest problems for the Saints, committing 8 penalties for a total of 83 yards.
Alvin Kamara had a 49-yard run in the first quarter, and this is a clip of that run.
Despite Alvin Kamara’s big game, the Saints were not able to pull out a victory.
While Michael Thomas, Marcus Davenport, Chase Hansen, DJ Swearinger and David Onyemata were also inactive, while Trey Hendrickson, who was previously questionable, was active during Sunday’s game.

The streak is over...— Jeff Nowak (@Jeff_Nowak) September 28, 2020
This is the first time since Week 2 of the 2018 season that any team other than the Saints was alone atop the NFC South standings. It was also the Bucs at that point after Fitzmagic struck in the opener. pic.twitter.com/Zqx40yiPXC
