NFL players kneel during national anthem at London game

Saints quarterback Drew Brees revealed what the team plans to do during the anthem in Week 4.		 Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints will face a pair of NFC North powers in Detroit and Green Bay looming after a bye in Week 5. With that off-field controversy behind him, Timmons will look to have a big day at Wembley Stadium. It will be their first game in Miami since August 17.

London-born Jay Ajayi will play in his hometown for the first time, giving Brits a chance to cheer the Dolphins running back who had a breakout season in 2016.

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. He has been sacked twice, however. The Bills are allowing only 37 points in three games and the defensive line has been dominant when being able to tee off on passing situations, which should be abundant in any Atlanta game.

What we see from the Dolphins are making fans wish they had "queasy" Joe Philbin back. But whether that shows Sunday against New Orleans in London, well, that's why he's in the spotlight.

What it means: The Saints' revitalized defense will truly be tested in the next two games (versus the Detroit Lions in Week 6, then at the Green Bay Packers in Week 7). New Orleans hasn't been dominant on offense, but found a stride over the last two games. Against three of the weaker defenses in the National Football League, the Dolphins have scored 25 points, an average of 8.3 pper game.

The Juice Is Loose: OJ Freed After 9 Years In Prison
OJ is well-known for being acquitted in 1955 following the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend Ron Goldman . He becomes eligible for release Sunday (09-01-17), but LaVergne said he doesn't know where or when it will happen.

Brees completed 29 of 41 passes and the Saints (2-2) shut down the Dolphins (1-2), forcing six punts. Mark Ingram is the leading rusher with 125 yards on 28 carries. However, it was the Saints constantly maligned defense that surprised almost everyone.

But the defense never made a play that changed the game's course.

Fox Sports had earlier said the London game would be the only fixture this weekend where live coverage of the anthems would be broadcast.

I want to see how the road tired Dolphins handle their third consecutive road game after being displaced by Hurricane Irma and losing a home game in Week 1. I also think the Dolphins will move the ball on this New Orleans defense, which has been very suspect against the pass.

Ajayi said on Friday he was unsure whether he would again protest but tight end Julius Thomas has confirmed he intends to make a statement once more. "A long way to come get it - but it was worth it".
