The rookies definitely came to play today. Kenny Stills had some great catches including the now overlooked touchdown in the fourth quarter that would have given the Saints the win. He also led the Saints in receiving with 64 yards and scored his first touchdown in the NFL. Khiry Robinson (doing his best “pocket Ivory” impression) ran hard, with great balance, and helped Pierre Thomas carry the load and move the chains at key moments during the game. Robinson led the Saints in rushing with 53 yards on 7 carries for a touchdown.
