            <span style="">Giving Thanks:</span> On Tuesday many members of the Saints' roster and their families will pass out turkeys and food baskets to 1,000 local families identified by the Dryades YMCA. The Saints players collected money and arranged for the purchase of the food items in what has become an annual tradition.   

Milestone Moment Tonight? RB Deuce McAllister, who is currently tied with Dalton Hilliard for the most touchdowns in team history (53), needs one touchdown to become the Saints' all-time leader in scores. It would not be the first record that the eighth-year running back from Ole Miss owns, as McAllister already owns the all-time mark for most career rushing scores (47) and is the team's all-time leading rusher (5,977 yards), rushing attempts (1,403) and 100-yard games (27).

"It's pretty special," said McAllister of being tied atop the record books. "Probably once it's all said and done, you'll really appreciate it more. But it's definitely an accomplishment, something you think about when you start playing the game."

Home Again (Finally!!!): The Saints will play host to their first game at the Superdome tonight in 43 days. The previous five weeks included a game at Carolina, a "home game" in London against San Diego, a bye week, and games at Atlanta and at Kansas City.
