Special Teams: 93 A

Darren Sproles was actually able to return a few balls. His longest was for a return of 28 yards. All in all, the return game is just not what the Saints are known for anymore, not since Michael Lewis and then Reggie Bush left the team.

Thomas Morstead was not as on as he usually is but still managed a 45.8 average. The most impressive stat, though, was that the Saints managed to limit Patrick Peterson to 7 total return yards. Keeping Peterson out of the endzone on special teams earns a star in my book.
