Saints Entertain Dolphins 9/30/13
NEW ORLEANS - Two unbeaten teams are squaring off tonight in the Monday NFL game. The surprising Dolphins are 3-0 as are the home standing Saints. This is all quite different from last season when both teams finished 7-9.
In explaining the difference from one season to another you have to start with the fact Sean Payton is back as coach of the Saints, while for the Dolphins second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill has developed that much more from last season.
The Saints and Dolphins have met 10 times in regular season games with Miami holding a 6-4 advantage. The last time they played was in the 2009 season when New Orleans won 46-34. Tonight's game marks their first meeting in the Superdome since 1995. They were slated to play in the dome in 2005 but the game had to be moved to LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge because of Hurricane Katrina.
