The Saints pulled off an improbable win yesterday as they defeated the super bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers 36-27. New Orleans did it without its top two quarterbacks, Taysom Hill, who didn’t play because of a concussion, and Jameis Winston went down with a knee injury after he was tackled by former LSU star Devin White, who was flagged for a horse collar. So New Orleans relied on third-string quarterback Trevor Siemian to lead the way and the Saints got a game-clinching pick-six interception from P-J Williams. But Coach Sean Payton says Winston’s injury is a bad one…

There are reports Winston has suffered a season-ending A-C-L injury.
In the Ragin Cajuns 45-0 Homecoming win over Texas State, U-L Lafayette Quarterback Levi Lewis became the school’s all-time passing touchdown leader, surpassing Jake Delhomme. Lewis threw three touchdown passes and the Baton Rouge native now has 65 for his collegiate career. Coach Billy Napier calls Lewis a heck of a football player

Louisiana Tech lost its starting quarterback, Austin Kendall, in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s loss to Old Dominion with an apparent lower back injury. His replacement, J-D Head was just 3-for-7 for 23 yards.
And ULM’s starting quarterback Chandler Rogers went down with an arm in Saturday’s 59-28 loss to Appalachian State. Back-up Jiya Wright rushed for 109 yards, but he was also intercepted twice and threw for 158 yards.
