For many on the New Orleans Saints roster, the contest on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins is just that—another prime time game for the Saints, a team that has been very successful in the past on the big stage.

That’s not the case for rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro.

Vaccaro is thrilled to finally get his shot on the big stage as he told’s Katherine Terrell:

"New Orleans Saints rookie Kenny Vaccaro has been waiting for his chance to play on “Monday Night Football” for a long time. Years, even.“Ever since I was a little kid, I mean, Monday Night,” Vaccaro said. “I just want to see myself get introduced. I want to rewatch the clips, when I get to say my name and school, I’ve looked forward to that my whole life.”And why not? For the undefeated Saints, the bigger the stage, the greater the success."

Any time a rookie gets his shot on MNF it’s a special moment. For Vaccaro, it’s an even bigger deal as he has been one of the Saints best players on defense so far this season.

While Vaccaro is going to have the time of his life playing on a major stage against the Dolphins, the rest of the nation will finally get to see one of the best young players in the NFL if they haven’t already. It’s a regular MNF for most fans, who will finally be introduced to Vaccaro.
