Specifically in pass coverage, Armstead showed off just how smart he is with recognition and giving Drew Brees that extra second to hook up with Willie Snead on a huge pass play.

You see the Saints offensive line has an empty set with tight ends Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui offering extra protection.

Josh Hill gets an extra chip on the defender who did cross, while Andrus Peat helps Armstead.

Hill goes downfield after a quick release, and Armstead continues to lock his defender.

The push starts to get to closer to Brees, and Armstead keeps his defender off long enough for Brees to connect on a huge pass play.
