The reigning Super Bowl champions made it look, easy. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes, in the first quarter, and for 447 yards in a 36-20 rout of the Saints before an announced crowd of 73,164 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. In the first quarter, Brady completed touchdown passes of 19 yards to Rex Burkhead, 53 yards to Rob Gronkowski, and 13 yards to Chris Hogan. The Patriots scored touchdowns on four of their first 5 possessions. New England led 30-13 at the half.
With the beginning of every season, there is optimism. But, much of it dissipated quickly in a 29-19 Saints loss at Minnesota. Tuesday head coach Sean Payton said looking at the game on video, “it was not a good tape.”There was so much chatter about Adrian Peterson carrying only six times in the game. But, the running back who was most under utilized was Mark Ingram. Coming off his best season in 2016, where he averaged 5.1 yards a carry, Ingram had only 11 touches in the game.
“That is not the way we wanted to start.”So, said Saints head coach Sean Payton after a 29-19 loss Monday night at Minnesota. The Saints have now lost four consecutive openers. Sam Bradford threw 3 touchdown passes, two in the second quarter to wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Bradford completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards. The Saints settled for four Wil Lutz field goals before Drew Brees threw a late fourth quarter 8 yard touchdown pass to tight end Coby Fleener.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
