The New Orleans Saints had a golden opportunity to set themselves apart from the rest of the NFC South by defeating the LA Rams on Thursday Night Football, but unfortunately, that did not occur. When the lights were bright and the world was watching, the Saints sputtered and fell flat.
The trend that a Dennis Allen led Saints team can’t beat a team with a winning record or a respectable offense continues. Let’s see what social media had to say about the loss.
I can’t get into moral victories in such a meaningful game. You have to play a full 60 minutes of football with what was at stake— John Hendrix (@JohnJHendrix) December 22, 2023
Every time the Saints had a chance to show they belong with the playoff-caliber teams, they failed this season.— Chris Rosvoglou (@RosvoglouReport) December 22, 2023
I think they really do have some talent on this roster. But nothing is going to happen with this head coach.

Cam Jordan: "We are who we are. There's two games left. There's no sugarcoating this shit. It's frustrating to be in this position. I'm not sure the probabilities of whatever it is now, we just have to win out. At the end of the day there's no excuses, we just have to win out."— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) December 22, 2023
With the playoffs quite possibly on the line, the Saints offense got Kamara involved to the tune of 35 yards of total offense.— John Butler (@Saintjohnbutler) December 22, 2023
They can't figure a way to get this man in space? It's Alvin freaking Kamara.
Also, Taysom Hill had 2 yards. 2. pic.twitter.com/MsAprEZIbk
