COVID-19 strikes the Saints
To say that this NFL season has been a rollercoaster of emotions for the New Orleans Saints would be an understatement. After losing Jameis Winston early on in the season, it’s almost a miracle that New Orleans has managed to keep themselves in the playoff race up until now.
After beating Brady and the Bucs last week, New Orleans hoped to repeat its success and continue their playoff push. Unfortunately, the Miami Dolphins and COVID-19 had something to say about that.
Ian Book would lead the charge and take his first snaps as an NFL starting QB. Things would get a bit rocky for Book as the game progressed, but he always kept fighting. Let’s dive into some of the social media reactions during the game.

Down several assistant coaches and defensive starters. Your starting offensive tackles are out. Your pass catchers can’t get open (or catch). Ian Book is a rookie who clearly looked flustered from all the pressure Miami was bringing.
Just an awful spot for the Saints.

If Drew Brees had this Saints defense he’d have 15 Super Bowl rings.

Cam Jordan and the Saints defense is insanely good.
Real shame they don’t have a QB pic.twitter.com/OWrBAyttqo

This Saints defense plays with their hair on fire every week and it really sucks that they don’t have a normal QB

Next up for the Saints are the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at 3:25 pm. I’ll be here after the game for more social media reactions.
