"I would have loved to have had a great game for my family and to be able to come back here". That didn't happen, though, as the Dolphins managed only 186 total yards, getting shutout in embarrassing fashion.
"So it's a good feeling to get that first one out of the way, and hopefully it's something that you can grab some momentum with and go get more".
STRANGE BEDS: Road fatigue might be a problem for the Dolphins, who have yet to play in Miami.
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.
It appears Brees wants to get back to that.
"I think I've embraced it because at the end of the day, I put a lot of pressure on myself to be successful", he said. "It was good to get them out here and move around". The Saints defense is giving up a whopping 437 yards of offense a game this season.
By contrast, the Saints' 38-year-old Drew Brees is coming off his most efficient game of the year, and he's on pace for a 12th consecutive 4,000-yard season. Last season, Snead finished as the second-best receiver in New Orleans behind Michael Thomas, hauling in 72 catches on 104 targets for 895 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
We can effectively say that this is not a must-win game anymore. "This was all that's mattered for the trip, regardless of what's happened last couple of days. this was the primary objective, to get a win today and we didn't get it done". He said about 40 people have already been in touch to get tickets.
Of course, the ultimate objective for the Saints is winning Sunday, trying to even their record at 2-2 while pleasing their fans from both near and far. The men in teal and orange do have the advantage in that a sizable number of them have played in the past few years at that venue.
Lutz missed his first try, a 41-yarder, wide right on the second play of the second quarter, and the teams threatened to have the first scoreless opening half since Week 14 of the 2011 season until Lutz connected from 43 yards with no time remaining. It's very frustrating, we have the talent, we have the skills but we're not putting it out there so we need to figure that out.
The defense will have a completely different monster pointed at them in London Sunday morning.
Jacksonville opened as 4-point favorites, the first time it hasn't been a road dog since November 13, 2011, at winless Indianapolis.
