Kenny Stills had an up-and-down season until a few weeks ago. After Brandin Cooks landed on IR with a broken thumb someone among the receivers had to step up and give Brees a safe option to throw to. Kenny Stills did exactly that.
Last week against the Ravens Stills was targeted 9 times by Drew Brees: 8 of those balls were caught by Stills and resulted in 98 yards of gain. Then, a few hours ago in Pittsburgh, he had an even better day:
5 receptions, 162 receiving yards, 1 touchdown.
Saints fans were pretty happy with what they saw today from Stills:
Stills had a career day and was so pumped he even found time to troll some Steelers fans:
Can he do it again? Can he do it consistently? Is Stills the #1 receiver the Saints are looking for? Only time will tell but if he keeps playing like that good things will come for him and for the Saints, that’s for sure.
