New Orleans Saints will stand for USA anthem at Wembley

An undrafted free agent out of Colorado in 2016, Crawley started after P.J. Williams was disciplined for an unspecified violation of team rules and intercepted Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler to end the first drive of the game.
It's really hard to say whether the Dolphins will be able to hold off a good Saints offense.
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. Scoring just six points in two weeks against the New York Jets and Saints-two teams hardly renowned for their defense coming into the season-is a major concern and will raise questions about the job security of Cutler.
The Dolphins only arrived in London on Friday morning, unlike the Saints (1-2) who have spent the whole week in Britain as a way of getting adjusted to the time difference.
The shutout by the defense was the team's first since a 41-0 victory of over Tampa Bay in 2012. "Offensively, we sustained drives". For Michael Thomas, it was his first time kneeling.
Lawrence Timmons is often credited for his ability to stop the run, but one underrated part of his game is his feel for the passing game when asked to drop back in zone coverage. Drew Brees completed 22 of 29 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns.
"Whenever any of our numbers are called, we know what the standard is", Kamara said.
Ajayi is still nursing a sore knee and they need to keep him fresh so that he can be more effective on first and second down. "Regardless of anything else I did these last couple of days, this was the primary objective, and we didn't get that done". This NFL regular season matchup is important as both the teams are fighting for the points that will take them further into the tournament.
NFL Sunday kicked off in London with more kneeling during the national anthem, as President Trump continues to admonish players who don't stand for the flag. The Saints have a bye before playing its next game on October 15 against the visiting Detroit Lions.
