The offense will start with Alvin Kamara
If you thought Alvin Kamara’s success was solely based on Drew Brees, you can think again. With Teddy Bridgewater at the helm, Kamara had his best outing of the season, totaling over 150 all-purpose yards.

What was even more impactful were the two scores that Kamara shifted and powered his way to get. The elusive third-year back was shut down by the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, being held to just 60 all-purpose yards.
The team was led by Teddy Bridgewater after Brees’ injury. A full week of preparation later, the Saints had full confidence in their backup. Kamara joined Scott Van Pelt’s late-night Sportscenter and said he’s got the “ultimate confidence in Teddy to get the job done.”
Although not a flawless performance, Bridgewater got Kamara in open flats and allowed him to use his dynamic acceleration and quickness to pick up the extra yards.
Both Kamara and Michael Thomas ended the game with over 10 yards per game. Kamara also notched over four yards per carry. As for the offense at-large, Thomas helps, but it’ll start with Kamara heating up the run game and opening the defense up for Thomas and Bridgewater to carve them up.
That’s what happened in the second half at Seattle in Week 3.
