The last time the Saints took the field, Drew Brees set the NFL record for most career passing yards. The quarterback will try to keep the New Orleans offense rolling as it travels to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in an interconference matchup.

Brees has the Saints on a four-game winning streak since their Week 1 loss, and New Orleans’ offense has eclipsed 40 points three different times this season.

The Ravens are back at home, where that have yet to lose this season, for the first time since Week 3. Joe Flacco is the head of an offense that has had an inconsistent last two games, as Baltimore has scored just 30 points combined in that span. They scored at least 23 points in each of their first four games.

Saints: 0
Ravens: 0

(All times ET)

4:52 p.m.: We will have another review as the Saints want to challenge whether the Ravens got the first down on a third-and-1 run. Play stands and is a first down. 

4:46 p.m.: What was initially called a fumble by the Saints turns into an incomplete pass and the Saints will punt on a fourth-and-5. First time in the game they will not be going for it on fourth down. 

4:43 p.m.: It appeared as if the Saints had a three-and-out, but a pass interference penalty on the Ravens keeps the drive alive and moves the ball to the Saints’ 41-yard line. 

End of first quarter: Saints 0, Ravens 0

4:33 p.m.: Back-to-back chunk plays for the Ravens on a Willie Snead 13-yard run and a 16-yard pass from Flacco to John Brown put the Ravens at midfield, but their drive stalls and they punt down to the Saints’ 13.

4:28 p.m.: FUMBLE, SAINTS. On play No. 20 of the drive, the Saints try to run a speed option, but Alvin Kamara mishandles the pitch and the ball is recovered by the Ravens at their own 6-yard line. New Orleans comes away with no points despite taking 10:03 off the clock.

4:22 p.m.: The Saints convert their third fourth down of the opening drive, this time on a run by Mark Ingram. New Orleans has already ate over eight minutes off the clock on its opening drive, but no points yet.

4:12 p.m.: It appears that the Saints converted a third-and-6 on completion from Brees to Benjamin Watson, but the Ravens think he was short of the first down and want to challenge the spot. The play is overturned and the Saints will have a fourth-and-1 at their own 47. Brees sneaks and gets the first down. 

4:08 p.m.: The Saints go with a fake punt on fourth down and convert on a run by backup quarterback/jack-of-all-trades Taysom Hill. Their offense will go back on the field.

4:07 p.m.: The opening kick goes for a touchback. The Saints will start with the ball.

3:48 p.m.: Veteran quarterback Joe Flacco and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson take the field.
