New Orleans Saints (2-5) at Arizona Cardinals (3-4), Cardinals win 42-34

The New Orleans Saints dropped 42-34 to the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., after committing three first-half turnovers, two of which ended in pick-sixes. Arizona scored two touchdowns in the second half for the first time in almost five years to score more than 40 points.

Especially with Hopkins back in the mix, with an impressive debut with 10 grabs and over 100 yards, the Cardinals appear to have regained their swagger back.

Falcons (3-3) at Bengals (3-3), 1 p.m.:

Cincinnati has won three of its last four games, thanks to an improved offensive line, hot playmakers like Ja’Marr Chase, and Joe Burrow distributing the ball more swiftly. If it weren’t for three defeats by three, three, and two points, the defending AFC champions’ record would be much better.

There are very few cornerbacks capable of shutting down Chase. Terrell would ordinarily have a shot, however he has been injured for the previous few weeks. Chase racked up 132 yards and two scores on seven catches last week. Cincinnati will be difficult to beat if Burrow and Chase find their stride.

Georgia Supreme Court justices appear skeptical of Athens DA’s claim of open records exemption

In an upcoming ruling, Georgia’s Supreme Court will weigh in on a claim brought by Athens-Clarke District Attorney Deborah Gonzalez, arguing that top prosecutors are exempt from the state’s open records laws. The case involves assertions that the trial court overlooked a constitutional provision in denying Gonzalez’s motion to dismiss an open records complaint, mirroring similar immunity arguments made by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in a separate case related to the 2020 presidential election interference.

Georgia public colleges to expand admissions testing requirements for fall 2026

Water-hogging data centers flagged in latest ‘Dirty Dozen’ environmental watchdog report

In its annual report released on Thursday, the Georgia Water Coalition spotlighted the detrimental effects of record economic growth on the state’s waterways, particularly in the coastal region, where a surge in state-of-the-art data centers poses a significant threat to Georgia’s rivers. The report urges urgent action from public officials and residents to advocate for policies that safeguard natural resources crucial for clean drinking water and outdoor recreation, emphasizing the need for coordinated water planning to address mounting environmental pressures.
