The only bad news for the Saints Sunday

came in the form of a key injury.Left tackle Terron Armstead left in the first half with a shoulder injury Cheap Sheldon Rankins Jersey , and did not return. He was replaced by veteran Jermon Bushrod, but it didn’t really impact them in the short term, as they rolled the Bengals 51-14.Armstead’s status will obviously be a major concern for the Saints offense as the competition improves (the Bengals did nothing to take away from thier status as the league’s worst defense).Despite that, they easily rolled to their eighth straight win to improve to 8-1, making you wonder most how in the name of Fitzmagic they lost to the Buccaneers in the opener.Drew Brees was 22-of-25 for 265 yards and three touchdowns (i.e. as many touchdowns as incompletions), and the Saints scored on their first nine possessions (including touchdowns on their first five in the first half). Backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater kneeled out the clock to keep it from being a perfect game in that regard.Running back Mark Ingram seems to be back and re-integrated into the offense, as he had 13 carries for 104 yards.But the Saints have so many weapons Cheap Alvin Kamara Jersey , it’s hard to parse which one might be the most important. Ingram and Alvin Kamara took turns throwing up the X in honor of injured wideout Dez Bryant after touchdowns. Bryant was signed last week, but tore his Achilles in practice and was lost for the season without playing a gameThe Bengals (5-4) actually matched the Saints first touchdown, but that was the extent of the highlights for them. Without wide receiver A.J. Green (toe), their offense wasn’t able to sustain drives, as they were a perfect 0-of-6 on third downs. Andy Dalton threw two interceptions, but this was a complete wheels-falling-off moment for the Bengals, with everyone out there sharing the blame for a dreadful day. Saints punter Thomas Morstead was a good sport about not having much to do on Monday night.The Saints’ offense played so well that they never punted in their win over Washington Terron Armstead Jersey , and after the game Morstead posted a picture of himself and quarterback Drew Brees, with Morstead making a “zero” sign with his hand.“INACTIVE AGAIN!” Morstead wrote. “What an honor to play with the GOAT. Congrats Drew!”But Morstead had to be a bit disappointed that he never punted, because he had a special guest at the game.“Morstead had his old kicking coach [Jamie Kohl] come to his first game tonight to see him play, and he got to see [Morstead] hold,” said Saints coach Sean Payton. “It was one of those nights.”A team going a full game without punting doesn’t happen often: It has happened twice so far this season, and happened three times last season. But it has happened four times during Morstead’s time with the Saints. He’s used to Brees keeping him off the field.
