Bills and Saints hope to return to the ranks of the contenders on Thanksgiving Day

Buffalo wants to leave his bad moment behind with a visit to New Orleans where uncertainty reigns due to injuries in the squad

NEW ORLEANS – Very little has come easily for the New Orleans Saints in this season, particularly in the Superdome, where they have lost twice after being up in the final minute of regulation time.

Despite this, and the three-game losing streak they currently carry, the Saints (5-5) are in the thick of the playoff landscape of the NFC Heading into a Thursday night engagement at the Thanksgiving Day against some Buffalo bills (6-4) who have had their share of stumbling too, recently.

Losing wears down a team. Losing is difficult ”, explained the offensive lineman of the Saints, James Hurst, who has been thrown into the starting roles of both tackle and guard for an injury-decimated team of New orleans in the campaign. “It’s easy to make excuses, but the kind that players we have in our locker room aren’t looking to make excuses.

“Everyone is looking at their jobs, trying to understand what they can do better,” he added. Hurst. “Everyone is really responsible and I think that’s all you can really ask for.”

But the question of whether saying the right things makes up for lost talent is another matter. The best offensive player in New Orleans, Alvin Kamara, injured his knee during a two-point loss to the Los Atlanta Falcons three weeks ago, and he will miss his third game in a row. The starting right tackle of the Saints, Ryan Ramczyk, (knee) will miss his second game in a row, and the defensive end, Marcus davenport (shoulder), the club’s leader in sacks, has also been ruled out for this week.

Veteran Mark Ingram II has been the primary corridor for New orleans In absence of KamaraBut now he’s showing up on the injury report with a knee problem, and he’s also in question.

That has only complicated things for the quarterback. Trevor siemian, who has lost his first three starts since being forced into the starting job by the knee injury that ended the season for Jameis winston.

“Whenever you’re not winning, you always reflect, saying, ‘Hey, what can I do to get through this and get some wins?’ The answer is, ‘I have to play a little better at times,’ ”he revealed. Siemian, who threw his first two interceptions in last Sunday’s loss to Los Philadelphia Eagles. “Me and everyone else, we haven’t played well enough to win … But, I look forward to playing this week.”

The Bills have lost two of three, including a surprise 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and an incredibly uncompetitive start in a 41-15 stumble – at home – to the Indianapolis Colts In the past week.

But, the quarterback Josh allen He said that while the Bills they are making corrections of last Sunday’s loss, they are not dragging it with them.

“You can’t feel bad for yourself; you can’t let one week affect the other, ”he said. Allen. “We are excited to go out there on Thursday and try to be the team that we know we can be. It is about a team willing to do whatever it takes to win a game. “
