Saints rally in second half, shut out Dolphins in London

Quarterback Jay Cutler and the Dolphins appeared primed for an opening score, marching down the field at will, until they got inside the Saints 10.

Streif, who was active for the game despite missing most of the week's practice with a knee problem, picked up the injury when a Dolphins defender fell on his legs. However, Brees also disagreed with Trump's comments last week and said, "I don't blame the guys for feeling like they needed to do something as a reaction".

The first half featured 11 penalties, including seven against the Dolphins for 60 yards.

Ajayi was feeling it more than most.

The Dolphins haven't scored a single point in the first half this season and have scored two offensive touchdowns.

But...this will certainly keep the story alive and only bring more attention to how other National Football League teams act on the sidelines in later games today and in the weeks to come.

The Dolphins' offense floundered against the New York Jets last week and they'll look to rebound against the New Orleans Saints this week in London. "Offensively, we sustained drives". He could be seen venting his anger on the sideline having had little impact in the running game in a fixture he had called "special". In the receiving end, Michael Thomas posted 87 yards and a touchdown in seven receptions while Ted Ginn Jr. added 44 yards and a touchdown in two catches.

FAST FACTS: QB Drew Brees has 867 pass yards (289 per game), 6 TDs and no interceptions for a 109.7 rating in past three games. Only rushing for 30 yards, the entire gem of the game was perhaps QB Jay Cutler.

"Regardless of anything I did the last couple days this was the primary objective to get a win and we didn't do that".

"It's been a long three weeks", left tackle Laremy Tunsil said.

Saints coach Sean Payton said there was no influence from Saints ownership on the players' decision. "Being a good player and being from London, being the only skill player right now as well, has kind of made me the face nearly of NFL UK".

The New Orleans Saints kneeled as a team before the national anthem in London ahead of their game against the Dolphins.

Also, two members of the Detroit Lions - Steve Longa and Jalen Reeves-Maybin - knelt during the anthem, with Tahir Whitehead standing between them.
