Kelly refuses to put 49ers defensive woes on coordinator

As you'd imagine, New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram and quarterback Drew Brees are up for weekly National Football League awards from their stellar performances against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.

Romo, injured in an August 25 preseason game against the Seahawks, will do more at practice this week in his 11th week of rehab.

The Saints last beat the Broncos in New Orleans in 1988, a 42-0 victory that included three touchdown passes by Bobby Hebert and a punt return touchdown by Mel Gray.

- They gave up the fourth-most yards (571) in the franchise's 70-year history. Eight different New Orleans players had at least two catches in this game, as Brees picked apart the San Francisco defense at will. Defensively, New Orleans is allowing 29.8 points and 408.5 yards per game.

"And unfortunately we've never felt that feeling reciprocated from their end", Brees said. "We've got some momentum now". "We can't be the laughingstock".

Colin Kaepernick played a decent game, throwing for 398 yards on 24 of 39 completions. The New Orleans backfield is headed down the path of a frustrating timeshare, with neither back running clearly ahead of the other. Week after week, the San Francisco defense appears lethargic and defeated.

Once 49ers defenders allowed a fourth consecutive touchdown drive, they calmly sat on the bench, listened to their position coaches and settled into their season-long routine of what-the-heck-happened dialogue. Ingram went off for 158 yards on the ground, including a career-long, 75-yard touchdown run. Hightower finished with 87 yards on 23 carries.

Ingram's 10.14 Rushing Net Expected Points were the most in the league on Sunday, per numberFire Live.

Cristiano Ronaldo signs new five-year contract
If you analyse his performance by goals, or by his play, I don't know, but Cristiano is a fundamental player. If he stays with Real Madrid till 2021, Ronaldo will complete 12 years with the giants of world football.

Dollar steady ahead of US presidential election
After all, more than 6.4 million voters already have cast their ballots, roughly two-thirds of the expected overall turnout. On the other hand, the latest political turbulence was bad news for gold, which tends to rise when investors are fearful.

Khurshid Shah says Imran helped Nawaz govt
Khattak said that he had rejected an offer from Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to come to Islamabad alone. Details of Sharif's offshore holdings emerged in leaked documents from a Panama law firm.

But I'll give Kelly leeway this time, because I was the one asking the questions and because, as the 49ers sit at 1-7, with all the usual potential hell about to break loose inside 49ers headquarters, I don't think Kelly is required to provide a full-out, unequivocal answer. "It's in the rearview mirror, really, and we just need to learn from the mistakes".

"Phil's come to my games in Philly and it wasn't an issue", Kelly said.

Defensive tackle Arik Armstead appeared to re-injure his shoulder Sunday and he may be shelved. Plus, Siemian also has two very talented receivers on his team in Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. So let me point out a few positive things the Saints have been doing as of late. Kaepernick threw touchdown passes of 47 yards and 65 yards.

After allowing 513 yards to Tampa Bay two weeks ago, San Francisco was even more generous against the Saints as the team allowed back-to-back opponents to top 500 yards of offense for the first time since 1963.

The Cardinals are rested coming off the bye week and enter Week 10 with a 3-4-1 record. "But, I thought our defense did a pretty good job getting some pretty critical turnovers". Quarterback Case Keenum was 27-of-46 for 296 yards with a touchdown and an interception as the calls for No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff grow louder.

Should I say, the Saints have been proving Jim Mora right since his rant after their loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football.

Jimmie Ward, Keith Reaser, and Eric Reid were all flagged for holding penalties on the play, but the Saints were only able to take a five-yard penalty for their lost time in the red zone. "And, ultimately, that's what we have to do, is correct things offensively, defensively and special teams".
