New Orleans Saints: 3 studs, 1 dud in close call with Titans
Stud No. 1 – Alvin Kamara
Alvin Kamara showed signs of the Kamara we have seen rushing for the past couple of seasons. He hasn’t rushed for over 1000-yards in more than a couple of games in recent memory. To see him hit the endzone twice and rush for 7.3 yards-per-carry, should boost Saints fans’ spirits.
Kamara took 11 carries for 80-yards and two scores against the Titans apparent weak run defense. He also added six receptions for 30-yards. Thirty yards receiving is on the lower end of his receiver work this year.
Kamara hasn’t seen his name on the stud list for quite some time. It is refreshing to be talking about him in the light instead of the darkness. This is also perfect timing for the release of the old Kamara, right in time to win a Super Bowl.
If the New Orleans Saints want a shot at beating the entire NFC, they are going to need Latavius Murray and Alvin Kamara to be on the top of their running game. Should Alvin Kamara keep rushing like he did this week, the New Orleans Saints are the best team in the NFC.
