Saints lose Derek Carr to shoulder injury in loss to Packers 18-17

Going into the game against the Packers, Saints' nation wanted to know if this was the week that the offense was going to come alive. Welp, just like the previous weeks, the Saints had to gut it out late, but this time failed to convert the field goal to lose 18-17.

Derek Carr had the offense rolling in the first half, but unfortunately his day was cut short. After being sacked by Rashan Gary in the second quarter, Carr was holding his shoulder and looked like he was in pain. Carr went to the medical tent and was evaluated that he did suffer a shoulder injury and was ruled out for the rest of the day. He finished 13 of 18 for 103 yards and 1 touchdown.

Jameis Winston took over as quarterback, but the offensive flow was not there. There were a couple overthrown balls and a lot of costly penalties that hurt the Saints late. Holding onto a six-point lead, the Saints' defense could not hold their water, as Jordon Love threw a dart to Dobbs in the endzone to help put the Packers in the driver's seat for a comeback victory. With one drive left in a win or lose situation, Winston drove his team down the field for a potential game winning field goal. Welp, that drive was in vain, because the Saints missed the field and suffered their first loss of the season.
